Things I shot lately ;)




Most of you probably know about my new Canon t3i, I've been shooting up a storm...wow that doesn't sound right to someone that has to translate this!...Sorry, it just means that I have been taking a lot of pictures of practically anything that seem remotely interesting...and some things that aren't but that's the fun of taking pictures...you win some and you lose some.
The weather being so cold at this time, I just wanted to stay in the house to take pictures. The house is still under construction and everything isn't finished yet so I have limited things to take pictures of.
I'm not really uhmmmm how do I say this? I don't really have a lot of nice things. I guess I don't like spending  a lot of money on things or it's not a priority of mine I guess. I love a nice home, don't get me wrong and I love to see other peoples houses that are fine and fancy but I guess I just chose to spend what little money I have on other things...like fabric!!! wooohooo!!!  and sometimes musical instruments. I have a keyboard and a guitar a nice microphone.
Anyway, I had to do some practicing with all the different settings. I really like the depth of field setting on the camera, It is great!! I love it!!
So, here are some of the things I took while practicing with the camera techniques.





My bedroom clock, I like my clock

Can you see me? I was wearing a light aqua blouse
























this is one of my feather earrings and my reading glasses so I can see!! lol





 a clothes pin, well that's interesting!! lol

 Some butterflies I cut out of paint swatches

 The bottom of my makeup mirror

 I put my buttons in a pretty jar

 Some more button's in a jar with a peacock feather!
 Now this is a dressform that I made with clay.....but it went and cracked on me when it dried (boohoo)
And the funny looking thing laying against it is a flower I made.

 I plan to make good use of these babies sometimes when I make a mosaic! I've always wanted to make something in a mosaic.

 This is the frame of a mirror I have. I bought it in Halifax at Home Sense and when I got it home...it was broken (boohoo) I could have cried...but then I thought I can always put another mirror in it or a nice picture..       I just love the focus on this and the great depth of field!!                                                                                                                                        
Here it is again with the focus on the other end






Always got to have some of these on hand. You never know when you can use them for something.
