Flash! Camera! Action!

Big heart moon
The best things in life are free.

I have the most wondrous view. I am thanking the moon and stars that I see when I look through my window. I have to take photographs every time. I am still getting used to all thing technical ( I was a eighties baby, I can fix any broken VCR, and rewire your Panasonic tape deck with up to four speakers, using a butter knife and sheer luck.) So I am learning to use my super doper camera the big fella got me for my b'day couple of months back. I was about to delete the first photo here as it is clearly fuzzy and out of focus. But on closer inspection, I kinda of like it. The moon looks like a jumping heart and the lights like swans. To me anyway. You might think it is just a blurry photo. In which you would be right. The second photo is with a lot more practice and finding the self timer button! I like it, but it still does not do the real thing justice, I am just so lucky I can see this every night! Weather permitting of course! Hope you all are well!

It is a great view. Can't wait to see what else you can do with that camera as time goes on, if this is the shots you are doing now. You have a good eye.

I saw the love heart. I think that is the big fella telling you that he deserves some lovin for buying you a high falutin' camera! That should NEVER be fixed with a butter knife!
Great shots! you are lucky indeed!

HA! The butter knife cracked me up...it's one of my most-commonly used tools!!!! My mom's too -- which drives my tool-y dad mental...*grin* We've also been known to hang pictures with a steak hammer....
