It's called a Welsh Dragon--Midori, pineapple juice, can't remember what else. But it goes down really easy on a hot day!

The view from my office building ... the *other* side from my office (I overlook the parking lot) One of my new bosses had to move from this office. I told him I would have refused!

A few recent shots

A section of downtown river front, last night before the fireworks show.


Bench by the pond at work, playing around with a yellow tint


Stream flowing into the pond


Tree bark macro, along the stream


Purple is my least favorite color but I saw this lily, stopped as I walked past, and went back to it. I love the contrast and thankfully I got the focus right! I was not sure how to crop it, b/c I wanted the focus to be on those thingies in the middle. I think it looks a little better cropped closer, even though the edges of the petals and that long thing are off the edge.


Water drops, my favorite


Green frog in the pond

A different frog at the pond


Right now, I want to be this rock!


The pond where I find the frogs


These things covered my yard for weeks


Mossy tree in my yard


Look closely and you will see a spider and a web. I'm still getting the hang of my true manual focus

My dog in my yard. It was so insanely humid this day, you can see the mist on the grass and the air looked misty like an enchanted fores.


Last month I went out to a farm to have Kenya tested on sheep. First time visiting a real farm with horses and such (I know...I'm 23 years old!!).




The light coming in this barn door was very direct and harsh so I made all these black and whites.

PS can you guys tell me if those sets of pics look OK as far as brightness, color, etc? I do all my pics on my laptop, but I notice they look different on my Mac and on my other PC at work. I guess it all depends on the monitor settings and gamma, but I'd like to use a "happy medium". I had several of my photos printed a few weeks ago and was pleased, but sometimes when I see them on another screen, it's like "hmmm, that is not how I remember that photo looking!"

They are wonderful and I find the colours impressive. Especially the purple one. Which camera do you use?

It's right, colours do look different on different monitors. There is a device setting monitor colors as the should be, but that is very expensive.

I've compared some of the pictures between my normal monitor, at 17' flat screen from Benq, and my laptop, a 15.4' inch from HP. The Benq has better contrast, nicer colors and more intensity. On the laptop it is lighter and the colors are a bit different either.

A gorgeous bunch of pictures, Lies--thank you! I especially like the water drops.
And the picture of your hand (?) holding the maple seed is very familiar--we have those all over the yard each spring; some of them have even lodged in the cracks between the stones on the patio and started growing little maple trees!

Thanks guys!

VV - those pics were all taken with a Panasonic FZ50. I also use a Canon A460 and all my photos up until mid-March are with a Canon S1. I bought a new flash and bounce from my boss last week so now I am learning flash.

Thank you very much. The Panasonic looks interesting, though at the moment a bit above my price range. The Canon S1 would suit my pocket better, though I guess I will stay with the camera I'm currently longing for, the Olympus SP-560UZ, which I am planning to purchase when I'm in the US (at current exchange rates it's a steal).

For me it was between the Panasonic FZ50 and the Canon S5. I got the FZ50 because it did a few things that the S5 does not, and feels one step closer to an SLR. I think I would have been perfectly happy with the S5 as well.
