One while waiting up for Santa.

From the Oregon Garden, earlier this year. A little fringe/halo on the edges.


  1. Very Nice Colors! I hope Santa was good to you.

  2. lol - well, he forgot to leave my Ninja under the tree. Or maybe he went for a ride...there were these tire marks out the front door and all these reindeer in the back yard nibbling on the rose bushes...hmmmm?

  3. your Ninja is sitting in my garage, Santa never came by to pick it up, still for sale if you're interested.

  4. Bad Santa! He's slippin'
    Let me get my cruiser sold then we'll talk! :)

  5. Did the blue fringe happen by itself or did you help it along?

    Nice shot, by the way.

    The nice thing about the G11 is that it has a built-in Macro mode that does a good job. That's a hlot cheaper than the $900 Shutterbug wants for a 100mm Macro lense.

  6. The flower has a slight blue edge to it's petals, but I think it popped out a little more when I upped the saturation on the color.

    lol - yeah, lenses are killers. I'm lusting for a wide angle lens of these days.

    My husband, Ron, got me a G11 for my birthday. (He wasn't supposed to do that.) I haven't gotten to use it much yet. Hoping to remedy that in the next few days. I think I'm going to love it for touring. Small size, but lots of control.

  7. Congratulations on the G11! What a sweet husband. Just don't tell him that another guy called him sweet.

    I am growing to like the G11 more and more. I have noticed a couple of things you might want to be aware of.

    I pack the G11 in a pocket of my riding jacket when I'm on the bike. I've noticed that the process of taking the camera in and out of the pocket tends to move the exposure compensation dial and the focus wheel for the optical viewfinder.

    It has happened enough that I always take a glance at the setting wheels before I take photos. Anymore I find myself using the live view for a viewfinder so I don't worry so much about the focus wheel.

    Just wanted to pass it along for what it's worth.

    I suppose we're all members of the "G" club. I have had my G10 for about a year. I hardly use my dSLR anymore.
    You don't need a wide angle if you are shooting a scenic (which doesn't move), just stitch two or more single photos together. My header photo which I posted yesterday was taken with the G10 in pano assist mode using 2 shots. Manual exposure.

    Have a very Happy New Year

    Sweet. Too funny, lol. He's a great guy though.

    Thanks for the tip on the G11. Good to know. I guess that's the downside of having dials and buttons conveniently located on the camera.

    I swear since I've gotten the G, I can't find a thing to photograph. It's like writer's block for photographers.

  10. Hi Bobskoot,
    I didn't even know it had a pano assist mode. Awesome. I really want to try some more pano shots this year.

    When I took up photography again I was sure I wanted to shoot birds and wildlife, but I've found I'm more interested in landscapes and such.

    Have a safe and Happy new year!

  11. Congratulations on your G11 and Happy Birthday! You'll grow to love the G the more you use it.

    "Writers block" for photographers is okay - I was worried that you put your blog on hold. :)

    Happy New Year!
