Small Town Fun

Small town concerts, free fun, great life! Who needs the city?

Black Friday at the Old Stone Church

Black Friday here in the US. Everyone is bustling for bargains. I’m not really sure that the so-called bargains really exist, but I’m certainly not going to brave the crowds to find out.

Last year, on Black Friday I wandered through the beautiful streets of Vail, where I bought a couple of things, had a couple of glasses of Champagne, and relaxed. As each year comes to a close I tire of stress. This year has been more stressful that most, construction problems, health problems and just a lot to contend with. My construction is finished for the most part. I’ve got my head around my health issues, so now, I’m going to sit back and relax. Today is my husband’s birthday SIXTY ONE! Can’t believe it. How did we both get so old. When we met, back in the seventies, we thought we’d be young forever. Well, nothing lasts for ever I guess.

Playing Panoramic with my new camera

DSC00062I went for a little hike today, just to play with my new toy. I have had camera’s with the ‘panoramic’ feature before, but none as easy to use, or as accurate as this.



I have to say that I am pretty impressed. I took a couple of regular shots too.







And of course, being the romantic I am, I had to play with a sunset.



This is only two days of playing with this camera, I am telling you right now, for a camera with so many features, it is magnificently simple to use. It has refreshed my love of photography and I thank Sony with all of my heart for making the DSC RX-100. I think they made if for me.
