five facts

It's been a while.
To me, it seems like ages since I've last posted.
The break was entirely unintentional.

I've been playing with my camera like a maniac - trying to learn all the settings, dials, gadgets....
Greg discovered this waterfall behind the farmer's market.
Perfect for playing with shutter speed...

Yeah -
I'm thinking that about one hundred snaps later, he might be regretting pointing it out to me...

Today, I am joining Reflection of You for

So - on to my five facts for today -

1.       I’m a ‘burb residing, city working, mountain weekender. Mostly, I feel as though I get the best of all worlds – the mix seems to suit my split personality – or would that be multiple personalities? Hmmmm, not sure about that one…

2.       When I started blogging about six months ago, I had no idea where I was headed or where it would take me – I still don’t. I’m finding it difficult to keep up with regular posts, which makes me a bit stressy sometimes. But, hey, it’s a journey – right? And I’m enjoying it more than I expected to.

3.       And that brings me to my tag-line, “slowing the pace…” Yeah, that was a super nice thought. The reality, though, is that life has NOT slowed down – not even a teensy-weensy bit. I’m open for suggestions on that tag-line thing.

4.       And then, adding to the overall pace of my life – I started a new job this week. Whew! While it’s a great opportunity for me, and I’m really excited about it – I think things are about to get a whole lot busier.

5.       One thing I do know, I’m really enjoying my new camera. I love looking at all your photos with their beautiful colors and textures – and think that someday, just maybe, I’ll have a clue what you all are doing. Once I get settled in my new job and straighten out my current computer situation, I’m thinking I’ll take Kim Klassen’s Photoshop course. Again – it’s a journey – and I’m happy to be on it.

Thanks for dropping in!

  4. I took 300 photos yesterday on our walk down to the farm pond and back. Some were definitely duplicates, but I can always delete the duds. That's the beauty of digital.

    Happy about your new job -- sounds exciting! :)

  5. I am so glad you are enjoying your new Camera. I also started blogging recently but just in the past few months frequently. Kim's classes are wonderful. She does have a free how to class you can start with... Nice waterfall. Thanks for visiting and your comments!
