Between the rain drops

We have been getting a lot of rain. Look how beautifully my camera captures each individual drop. I’m finally understanding Shutter speed.

This ditch has been here forever, this is the first time I see water running freely into the storm drain and then into the nearby LA River.

I snapped this picture on my phone while stopped at a stoplight. I’m sure it would be much more vivid with my new camera.

Look how clear this is. I was using the eye recognition feature and shooting into a mirror. I’d say I’m pretty sharp in this picture. Also a little cold, notice both a wool sweater and wool shawl. I wouldn’t survive for a minute in that polar vortex that hit the midwest last week.

Works really great on Aytan, look he’s smiling!

While the weather was nice, these guys are up changing or painting a new sign. I’m pretty sure the firetruck is just parked there while the firemen have lunch at Art’s Deli. It is a cool image.

I’ve been playing with the macro lens. I still have a lot to learn, but omg, am I loving this.

Thank you Trader Joes. I bet next time to go there will be no more daffodils.

I’ve been trying to get pictures of the hummingbirds. I wised up and put the feeder out front, so now when I sit at the kitchen table, I see them. Vicious little things, if there is more than one, a fight is taking place. When I stop outside they immediately are aware of me, and they stay away. Grrrr. Yes, I’ll be getting more powerful lenses in the future. But right now, I need to be close. I have seen the little brown ones, but have also seen some with a bright red breast. One of these days I’ll have pictures to share. For now, I’m just enjoying watching them through the window.
