Favorite Things Friday -October 1, 2010

I'm a newbie at Favorite Things Friday, so we'll see how this works. 

I think this is going to be a two for one Favorite thing post.  I was pretty scared of "fancy" cameras.  You know those ones where you have to set all those settings and focus all while trying to compose a picture.  At least I was until I met the man who would later become my husband.  He showed me how to use one of those "fancy" cameras, bought me a used SLR for my birthday and from there helped me develop a love of photography.  Not that I'm all that good at it, but I do enjoy taking pictures.

The camera lets me take pictures of one of my very favorite things, flowers.  I love the ultra close ups, parts and pieces, single blooms and whole fields of flowers.  Flowers brighten any space.  I love the colors, the brighter, the more saturated, the better.  What's one of your favorite things?  Check out Favorite Thing Friday over at "I Quilt in My Pyjama's".    Here are some of my favorite flower photos:

  5. Hey Kate. Thanks for popping and joining FTF. Great to meet you!

    I love the way you've captured the colour of those flowers. I feel like I could touch them. I can't photgrpah things to save myself. It's definitely a talent.

    I'm a sucker for hydrangeas. That's my favourite. Thanks for sharing. Come back again, and share some more.

    I'm off to have a sticky round the rest of your blog.

  7. Lovely flower photos! I could look at these all day. I'd like a "fancy camera" some day. Too bad they don't all come with someone to show you how to use it!

  10. Pictures of flowers are great for me because cut flowers don't get the right kind of attention at my house and die way too soon. These are wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing :)
