May Day is a special day in our home. It is a time to gather flowers and leave them as gifts for the ones we love. This year I'm using an old ladder to help display some of our spring blooms.
Pink ranunculus. I love the paper-like quality of these flowers.
I've had some questions about the camera I use. First, it is not a digital SLR camera. It's a simple point and shoot camera. My experience with this model has been wonderful. It takes incredible macro photos and has an easy to use manual mode you can play with. I purchased this camera almost 4 years ago at Best Buy, and it's still going strong. I don't use Photoshop on my photos. I will sometimes contrast and lighten my photos in Microsoft Office Picture Manager, so the majority of photos you see on my blog are truly straight from this camera. I hope that this helps those of you who have emailed me about this camera. My suggestion would be to check out Canon’s website here. If you’re having trouble deciding which camera to purchase, call them. They’re very helpful. My dream is to someday own a digital SLR, but until then I’m pretty happy with this one.
I leave you with freesias and roses by my bedside. Have a great week!
