Eclipse


What are the odds that there would be a lunar eclipse the very night that I received my new Nikon D80 Digital camera with the 70mm - 300mm lens? The very same day???? Well, the moon and earth, er.....well, pardon the pun but the universe decided that I should have the opportunity to try to take photos of this celestial event in a dark alley with no time to read the instruction book and not much idea of what to push, how to set the controls or even what I was doing! All in all, I think I got some decent shots and I am extremely pleased with the camera. Just in time for my trip to Florida! My DH is an indulgent soul and has gifted me with this wonderful camera for my birthday. I have been yearning for one ever since I went to the Galapagos Islands last year. Three of the people on my ship had the same camera and I guess you could say I have had camera envy ever since.



Nonie has some of her canvases hung at the Walnut Street Coffee Shop and today was the "opening." The art looks very, very nice and Nonie had some people quite interested in her work already. I hope she makes many sales and does really well. I am quite envious of her recent successes, but I will also be the first one to admit that she has been working hard on her art and has amasses quite a few items to show and/or sell. I, on the other had, have not! So, here's to Nonie! Great success and many sales! And should fame and fortune smile on you, m'dear, keep me in mind as your official photographer, please.
