Village Venture

This was perfect weather for a trip to the city of Claremont. This was their 29th annual Arts & Crafts Faire and my friend Donna Gunn was a vendor there. This is her new line of Handbags. Love them! Now I am the proud owner of one. It's kind of a Picasso look and a true one of a kind. Thanks Donna I love it! Hope you had a fantastic day. You can visit her at

Did I say I'm a Grandma?

This is Jadyn my first little grand baby, she is 4 months old. I got to watch her Sunday. Little did she know she was going to be my captured subject to practice what I've learned in my photography class. So far it's only been 2 classes. I had so much fun taking her pictures. Was a little hard getting the pictures with her trying to get her toes in her mouth and blowing little spit bubbles. I'm feeling really blessed to have this special little gift in my life. Thank you God! Oh yes, the technique I used was Exposure Compensation. This is a function that allows over or under exposure.

Seeing the Light

Light can be so dramatic or not so dramatic depending on how you use it. This is my first shot on seeing the light. As embarrassing as it is to say, after so many years I'm finally figuring out my camera. Didn't know I could shoot black and white, let alone be able to change my settings in sooo many different ways. This is going to be fun and challenging. This is called Metering Modes a function that allows you to choose how light is calculated.
