I'M back with yet another Dwarf Poinciana


Both computers are ready to roll when I get the email from Microsoft and it only took about 7 hours...  Photo's today of our Jungle yesterday.




 Last week I accidentally hit the up arrow on the round thingy that makes a camera go up down and sideways... does anyone know what it is called?






The top of that thingy is for wireless use of the camera which I have never touched.

The hidden thing is the Exposure Compensation... with the little slide up i can hold the camera up and watch the photo change BEFORE I push the button


.... I am driving Bob nuts showing him 3 exposures of each photo. We were eating lunch and I took 3 shots of HIM eating and said Look What This does?

He said "YES you showed me this yesterday"....

Did I? she asked innocently..  "But look at THIS ONE"

My goodness, what we don't learn from you. I don't have time for all you do. Could it be that I don't make the time? Nah!

I wish my brain would work enough to take all this in. Bob is a lucky man to have a wife so interested in things of her own. Also, I love those first pictures where the plant seems to pose all on its own, spreading out from the flower center in perfect harmony or is it symmetry?

Hello Sandra, did you go missing for a few days or maybe I missed your post? Your camera has some neat "thingy"s! I love the beautiful poinciana bloom, it is gorgeous. Did you download the new Microsoft, I am too chicken. I might have to wait and see how it goes. Have a great day!

I love these flower photos. They are so clear!
Funny about Bob having his photo made while eating! lol

Linda said...

Oh, Sandra, I love you!!!I can't believe you and I used the same camera!!! Our photos are WORLDS apart! I have a new one and need to get a new memory card so I can use both cameras as there are some features on my red one that I don't have on my purple one. See the difference in us? You know your camera and I know my colors!

What wonderful flower shots indeed.

Glad you are back, Sandra! The Dwarf Poinciana is spectacular!

You two are too cute! So you did the Windows 10 thingy?

Ann Thompson said...

Love all the pictures from your jungle. That second one is my favorite. I gave up on trying to learn about all the different settings on my camera. I can never remember it all anyway

Dory and the Mama said...

Your jungle is looking very beautiful these days!!!

It always amazes me what our cameras can do...After three years I finally used the video feature on my Nikon and was AMAZED at how crisp and clear the video was!!

Smileys!

You are braver than I am with Win 10....I just don't want to deal with it right now.

It is wonderful that you can have so much fun with a camera. That is a lot of cheap entertainment. In some ways.

Yippee!!! I have one coming up. I started to pull it thinking it was a thorn tree...glad I didn't. Beautiful

Gorgeous flowers! How do you like the new program?

That poinciana is one colorful flower, Sandra. I have just started to explore some of the features on my digital cameras.

Rebecca said...

Those long twisty stamens (?) are lovely. I think that is what they are called. It has been a loooong time since I have plant biology!

Nikon calls it the Multi Selector. I love your stories. Too bad we don't get to see Bob's expressions--they're left to our imaginations. ;)

I don't use the buttons in camera which i have not used. Since the clarity of the picture may go or something may go wrong. Need to be very careful in handling them. Enjoyed seeing your flower image...

I am always learning something new here and I always love those conversations you and Bob have. I love that flower. So pretty and the green foliage is too.

Madi and Mom said...

WooHoo welcome back you were missed.
You know I love your red flower.
I discovered a new (to Me) author I can hardly put the book down.
Harlon Coben, Six Years. Is fabulous

Bob does realize that you are THE madsnapper, right?! What gorgeous color and I love the leaf configuration on that plant!!!

Rose said...

I forgot to tell that I adore that poinciana, but I know I have told you before. But what I wanted to say, can you imagine Lorelei's delight with it if she could see it?

carolann said...

Oh your back. Oh pretty. New camera and having photo fun.

In you jungle back yard.

The last time I accidentally touched a button on my camera it put it in kodachrome mode or some such thing...every photo was tinted yellow.

The poinciana is gorgeous.
