I simply remember my favorite things…Friday’s favs…I’m lovin’ my camera.

My hubby bought me a new digital camera before baby granddaughter was born last year.  It’s nothing fancy, just a small Samsung SL310W 13.6mp point and shoot.

Even then, I managed to take many a terrible picture because of my basic refusal to READ THE DIRECTIONS. Once I finally did read them, I’ve been much happier with the results…go figure.
The following are pictures from a walk in my neighborhood yesterday presented as is…I don’t know how to photoshop or digitally enhance pictures because that would probably involve, you guessed it… READING DIRECTIONS.
Isn’t he beautiful?
Near my house is some protected woodlands with this old shed in it.  I love it.  I want to vandalize it and take some of it’s wonderful shabby chic boards and rusty hardware home with me.  I also want to go inside and see if there is anything interesting and old in there. However, I am too chicken to do the first because I figure that is probably stealing, even though I have no idea whose shed this actually was/is? And I’m too chicken to do the second, because of the high risk of rats and mice being inside…eeeewwww.  I’m actually quite surprised that being here in the city it’s not a hangout for wayward kids, or homeless vagrants, but for the 11 years I’ve lived here, it’s appeared to be untouched.
Lovin’ capturing the beauty around me,


  1. What beautiful pictures!! .......the first picture is really stunning!!

    Thanks for linking up to I'm Lovin' It! Have a GREAT weekend!

  2. Great pictures, looks like you've figured out that camera after all. First and foremost, love the baby!! That old shed sure is interesting but you are right, I would be afraid to go in too. Not a big fan of creepy crawlies. Thanks for sharing. Love, Angel

  3. Elizabeth, you can call the city, give the address, and ask them if you can have it, or who owns it. lol, S.

  4. I love that shed door. It's an incredible piece of history and art. How fortune you see it on your walks.

  5. I love your photos and you don't need Photoshop! I have a fancy digital camera and lenses and I like the quality of your photos better than what mine produces! Keep going, girlfriend - we love to see the world through your eyes.
