Another Wordless(ish) Wednesday

While my newer camera is still in the shop on "parts hold" (and has been there for over a month now!), I've been using my old Nikon D40.  While I miss my D3100, I'm glad I have the D40 to fall back on.  Here are just a few of the photos I took today ...
September 28
Photo of the Day - Sept. 28 - ISO 400, f/8, 1/60s, 18-105mm lens on Nikon D40
Despite the chilly nighttime weather as of late, my Cosmos are still going strong.  I thought I'd capture at least one more photo of them this evening before they are gone.

NapTime MomTog      and then, she {snapped}     


Honey
Honey, our golden retriever, is loving the new living room furniture.  I put this blanket down since she drools a lot while she sleeps (does anyone else's dog do that?), so she doesn't ruin the new-to-us love seat but the love seat still gets wet.  Ick!  I need to find a way to keep her off the furniture.  But she's just so darn sweet.


Fall Leaves
Our maple tree only has a few leaves that have changed color so far.  I'm hoping for a colorful fall this year.
   


Keira

Keira and I have been trying to get together to take her pictures since she just turned 13 last week.  While we can't seem to find a large amount of time at one time, we have been able to sneak in a few minutes here and there.  But when I start snapping, she starts giving me faces like this.  I warned her that I would put it on my blog and she didn't seem to care.  So here ya go.  :)  We did get some nice ones too though.  Once I get through editing them, I'll share.

That narrow depth of field on the top image is fantastic...I love how the skyline is so melded together like liquid gold.

I really enjoyed looking through all these photos - the one of your dog pretty much takes the cake - how adorable. I love the perspective and the colour of your flowers and that crisp perfect ray of light you've caught through the tree is just stunning.

Tara said...
