Cameras, Cats + inadvertent Cool

My new camera has a 'sports' setting, my old one did too but it never really worked all that well. The new camera, on the other hand, works very well in that mode.

If you have cats and want to catch them doing something cute, like licking their paws, you need the sport setting. If catches the action without a lot of blur.  Like this...

But if you forget to turn it off, your next still photo might come out a bit blurry...But notice, if you will, the cool reflection I got, and didn't notice, until I downloaded the photo...

Fuzzy BB and reflections of me...

One of these days I am going to concentrate on taking reflection photos...

I have absolutely nothing to say

about anything. Not politics, religion, pop culture (or mom culture), my boring little life - nothing, nada, zip, nil, ninguno - pfft.

But I have my camera - this morning I went through all the effects settings with Miss Frankie, I love her to pieces and she is gorgeous but...BB is a photographer's dream.

What I love about this camera is that effects I would normally apply after the fact, with an editing program, I can now set BEFORE I take the photo. Which, you have to admit, is kinda cool.

I lost track of what effect I was using - eh - and these 3 photos look pretty much the same but I love them all, so what the hell. I think this is toy camera - you can set the amount of vignette and the vividness...

Here is too much BB... these are straight out of the camera...

Finally - Winter is gone

It's currently 74 and mostly sunny, looking good for the next 2 weeks...temps cooling off around the 21st but still - not winter.
But this is just an excuse to post some photos from last Friday. I was up at an ungodly early hour and when I looked out my window I saw...

The trees looked pretty and the sky was interesting, best of all, by 9am the snow was gone and the sky was brighter.  I don't expect to see anything like this again for 9 months Yay!

Cats Eyes

I think I could take photos of nothing else other than cat's eyes for the rest of my life...

Very lightly edited, and if you click on the photos you will see them in more detail...
