Sunday on the Patio

Sunday morning time was spent in the little garden area around our apartment patio.  Here are a few of the captures from this time spent working with the new camera using two different 39-year-old lenses from our first SLR camera.  Not much automation for these.  Hope you can enjoy this little bit of beauty I saw this morning.

Gossamer winged dragonfly viewed through our patio fence.


 Some nice grasses.


 Rose bushes and trumpet vines in bloom.


 There is a fence gate, just out of focus as the flowers were getting my attention.


 A white winged dove with a damaged foot/claw.  It limps around our place.  Wish I could help it.


Holding the foot/claw as it perches.


Another Google Awesome animation shows the limp.


At last my husband came to join me and brought press pot coffee!


Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may wish to leave.

Sky Watch Friday



Joining Sky Watch Friday with a post from Saturday, March 9, 2013.  Our skies here on Friday June 6 were partly cloudy all day long.  When Google+ sent me this Auto Awesome movie, I decided to share it cause it was fun and partly cloudy in this series, too.  I was in the passenger seat with the Canon PowerShot S100 set for step shots.  F/3.2, 1/1250 sec., ISO-80 as we crossed the Tennessee River.  We were on Hwy. 156 heading south out of South Pittsburg, TN.

For a world of skies, visit Sky Watch Friday.  Thanks to YogiSylvia and Sandy for being such great hosts for this meme.
