life.....no matter what happens or what people say or say about you keep smiling life your life and happiness is all about you not what people say or accuse you of we al do things for a purpose. I love me and my life so I just smile when folks attack me and tell me I am bad or not real. I just smile and think they are so wrong, they must have a miserable life that they have to accuse me of having fun to save face.

55 days ago (2-Apr-18 12:37:29) - Compact Cameras, YES you can do it!
Most nights, my little free range pets sit out on the balcony and eat insects that are drawn to the light.

The weapon of choice is a Panasonic DMC-TZ11, YES you can do it with a Compact.

On a compact, shift it off "A" or "IA" [auto] select the little flower which denotes closer focus, and for these I selected flash on and in some Red Eye reduction flash. I aligned my subject using a small LED light and simply pushed the button. Depending if the LED was on or off, the Eyes of the frog are either dilated or not.

I was Gobsmacked, I was reading the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the year entries in 2013 a Finalist in the awards had used a compact!
Come on, no you cant do that? Not a National Award winning competition?

Well Yes You Can! A Panasonic DMC-FT3

Image 39 of 46, in the following link is damn good for a compact.

I am getting close to the time of year, when i will be focusing on a new project, all summer, i plan in shooting mostly small stuff, not the large landscape pictures, that is my normal thing.

Bee,s Butterflies, Damselflies , Dragonflies, Flowers, Fungi and the odd insect are my aim.

I was going to buy a new lens, to aid me, but will wait to, next year,see how i do, this year.

Just like,when i get writers block, i get photographers block, i can just stare at, a scene, where i know, there is a picture and no matter, how much you move about, you can just never get it, composition, they call it, when you do, see it.

61 days ago (27-Mar-18 17:30:57) - Pumpkin Pie
INGREDIENTS
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (15 ounce, 425 g) can pumpkin, solid pack
1 (12 ounce, 340 g) can evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed)
1 unbaked 9-inch deep dish pie pastry

DIRECTIONS

Mix sugar, salt and spices in small bowl.
In large bowl, beat eggs, stir in pumpkin, stir in spice mixture.
Slowly stir in evaporated milk.
Line pie pan with pie shell,
Pour into unbaked pie shell.
Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, reduce temp to 350, bake 40-50 minutes longer.

Pie is done when a knife inserted about midway comes out clean.
Cool for about 2 hours before serving.
Leftovers should be refrigerated.

Sweetened condensed milk can also be used, although with a little different result. If using sweetened condensed milk, omit the sugar.
Pumpkin pie is usually also seasoned with nutmeg, ginger (not fresh, from the spice aisle) - ½ teaspoon of each, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, but I omit them because I don’t like it in pumpkin.

This site could have been OK if Admin had listened to Brenda and to me, back in 2014. As it was, he ignored us.

It's a shame that Admin has lots of aspirations but doesn't spot when there's people around him who also have good ideas, and who could be of help, if only he would let them. Harness their energy, and all that.

Oh, well.

After 9 years on 'other sites' I'm kind of used to it, by now.

766 days ago (21-Apr-16 8:56:47) - Love and protect nature like we love and protect ourselves.
My personal opinion is that we are busy destroying the life line enabling our mere existence for the sake of money. Money can't and will not buy us a new planet. Nature should be our first love ...

It rained today in the middle of summer! A thunderstorm with lightning and rain and everything.

I lay in bed and listened to all the flowers and grass (and weeds) squeal with delight.
