Out And About Town

This is my camera:

It's a nice camera that my hubby bought me a couple of years ago. I love it. It takes good pictures. It's digital (which my previous camera was not), and it is small enough to fit in my purse.


But, its just a "point and shoot" and has limited megapixels and optical zoom.


I told you all of that as a HUGE disclaimer! I love to take pictures! I love to take pictures of the things I see everyday. I love to post said pictures on my blog. But as much as I would love to be a professional photographer, I'm not. I'm sure my pictures lack a lot that you knowledgeable ones notice. But I'm gonna post 'em anyway....cuz I like to....and I want to torture you....and I can..cuz this is my blog.........and I like pictures.......


So, today I noticed a beautiful Japanese Magnolia tree (or Tulip Tree, as I like to call them) near a local church. I couldn't resist stopping and taking some pictures. And I'm posting them here cuz I can and I like to torture you.....you get the picture.

You know what? You are the boss of this blog...so post what you want! I think your pics are lovely. My son is a professional photographer, but I just have a point and shoot, too. I just don't know if I have the smarts to figure out all those settings and things.

You are a great photographer. You prove that a highly technical and highly priced camera is not necessary to take great pictures. You keep 'em coming, girl.

You have been found guilty of telling an untruth. Those were absolutely beautiful pics. Good eye mate.

Lovely! We have a magazine in NC called Our State, you probably are aware of it since you lived here 7 years! Anyway they ask for readers to submit photographs, maybe the great state of Alabama has a magazine you could submit some of your photos to!? They may even pay you! Even if they didn't I still enjoy seeing them! What a beautiful country we live in. Thank you for taking time to smell..photograph the roses..I mean Japanese magnolias. :)

My favorite is picture #3. It looks like from your pictures that spring might be on its way to AL.

By the way I love the Japanese magnolia - I am not sure I have ever seen one before. So pretty!
