Wednesday evening, June 29
After stopping at Perfect Image Camera to pick up my new Nikon D7200, Cerwin went to Home Depot for chapel construction supplies. I stayed in the car to play with my new “toy”, and after doing a few initial settings, I took my first picture: the sign right in front of me. 🙂
We chose to purchase a new camera, because the repair of my Nikon D7000 sensor was half the price of a camera.
It is nice having a camera that is working again. It is very similar to the one I did have – but an upgrade with a few new features. The speed of this one makes me realize that mine has been going bad for some time.
Our next stop was Olive Garden where we used part of the gift card I won at Leslie’s baby shower a few weeks ago.
We enjoyed their delicious salad.
While waiting for the food, I checked our nearby surroundings and experimented with my camera.
Outside the restaurant
I took the next series of pictures while Cerwin was driving toward home.
The clouds were beautiful.
The kind where we all look for shapes of animals and other things.
Road construction delay
I turned down my car window to capture this fire hydrant next to our car.
Kreider Farms tourist silo
A dairy herd a few miles from our house.
I’ve lived along this road for 68 of my 72 years.
Daisies in our front yard
This lightening bug was out early on this evening. I didn’t realize they like daisy pollen.
Same thing – another color
Backyard. Yucca. I think everyone’s is blooming but ours.
Gooseneck Loosestrife (Lysimachia clethroides)
On our bank. Along the road. Crown vetch (Coronilla vara)
As I walked away from the road I heard the clip clop of horse hooves approaching.
Little did he know that I was playing with a new camera. 🙂
What great timing for my new camera.
