Keep in mind that I am not a photographer. I am a scrapbooker, so maybe one day (in my spare time) these will get made into beautiful scrapbook pages I can post here for you to look at. I like to TRY to take photographs. My friend Pam is so good!!! You can see her shots at He Keeps Me Singing :). And Whitney is coming along right behind her! Check Whitney's stuff out at Proverbs 31:30. I look at their blogs everyday to see if they have posted new things for me to drool over :) I wasn't happy with the zoom on my old camera, so my husband got me a new one for Mother's Day with a 15x optical zoom, so I am in business now!!! Here are some of the first pictures I took with this new camera.

This picture and the one below are of a fern outside our dining room window. It had just sprinkled a bit of rain - which we desperately needed. I didn't know if I would be able to catch the drops on the leaves or not, so I was really glad they turned out as well as they did.

My daughter took this picture in our back yard.


My husband, my daughter, and I went on a spur of the moment trip to St. Augustine for a couple days. These were taken at Crescent Beach and at Saltwater Cowboys - a restaurant on the marsh.

The next ones were taken with my old camera, which only had a 3x optical zoom. They cleaned up really nice and I had 10 megapixels, but I wanted to be able to get in really close and tight.

My friend Pam was doing a photo shoot of my daughter and three of our friends from church. So, I took pictures of Pam working, my daughter, and of the others playing - waiting for their turn :) Because of their ages, I am not posting their names here.

And this is my beautiful daughter :)

OK, I'm now convinced I too NEED a new ZOOM! :-)
