Back, at least for a while …

22 Nov

At last!

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted or done any photography, but I found myself tempted by the falling snow. So I got out the Nikon, which hadn’t suffered any damage from prolonged disuse, and shot a few.

This first was an attempt to be sure that everything was working properly … it was, and the battery was full enough so …

These were taken from the “Sun Room” windows and the door to the courtyard. They aren’t “soft focus”; the snow was falling pretty thickly, which accounts for the lack of sharpness and contrast.

And this last was from my apartment window …

Well, they’re not much, but it’s a step in the right direction … and it was good to be shooting again.

Thanks for following, folks! Cheers, all!

    Glad to see you back.

    I love those photos but I am a sucker for winter scenes.

    They are putting me in a Christmas mood for sure.

    I’d love to see the results of your camera work in my neighbourhood.

      I like the snow, too, Harry … I’ve just been having trouble getting about, lately. It’s getting better, though.

      Thanks, Merle … you’ve been doing some good work, yourself; I’ve been watching on Ipernity.

      Thanks … I see that you’ve been struck by some mysterious malady, yourself. Nasty-sounding; glad you’re better

      Feast or famine, Dare … a typical Wisconsin winter.

    Good to see you back, DW. Nice photos – I have no snow at all here in England, hardly even a frost…also, my camera isn’t working properly so I haven’t been photographing much.

      Thanks, Adele; it’s good to hear from you, too. Too bad about your cam; I hope it’s slated for an overhaul?
