Weather Around the World

The week of “Netflix and Chill”. I got hooked on “Bitten”, originally on SyFy and it was really good. I got a new app on my phone for “inappropriate” weather commentary. They’re too funny and they make the weather temps a little easier to tolerate. It’s too cold to go out, but at least we now have a working light in the kitchen, and it uses a “sunlight” bulb. I like the light that it gives off. It feels softer. I actually want to be in the kitchen now!

Throwback Thursday

I got a new camera tonight, so I thought tonight’s Throwback Thursday would be PERFECT if I found a picture I took with my DSLR!

028 -1

This was taken in my sink with the water running. I like it! I need to test it out with my NEW CAMERA! I got a Canon PowerShot ELPH 130 IS!


Shooting Modes/Special Scene Modes
Smart AUTO The camera automatically selects the best shooting settings for optimal quality based on subjects and environmental factors to provide point-and-shoot simplicity.
Program The camera automatically and intelligently selects the aperture/shutter speed combination based on the shooting conditions.
Portrait Brings the subject into focus while beautifully blurring the background.
Smart Shutter The camera automatically takes the photo when people smile, wink, or get into frame.
Low Light For high quality image capture in an amazing range of dimly lit situations.
Fisheye Effect Now you can get the fisheye effect – a classic photographic distortion – without a fisheye lens.
Miniature Effect Give images a miniature look with an effect that emphasizes perspective by blurring the top and bottom of the image.
Toy Camera Effect Simulates photos taken with “toy” or pinhole cameras, darkening the image at the edges to create a vignette effect.
Monochrome Choose from three single-tone effects: Black-and-White, Sepia, or Blue.
Super Vivid Super Vivid intensifies existing hues, saturating the scene with bright colors.
Poster Effect Poster Effect combines several similar shades into one color, turning subtle gradations into eye-catching, scene-popping contrasts.
Color Accent Choose to retain a single color in your image while other colors turn monochrome.
Color Swap Select a color and replace it with a color you specify for special effects.
Snow Shoot clear snow scenes without darkened subjects or an unnatural bluish tint.
Fireworks Create brilliant images of skyrocketing fireworks.
Long Shutter Use to blur moving subjects for artistic effect, ideal for urban night photography.
Stitch Assist Easy-to-use guidelines simplify the shooting of aligned multiple frames that can later be combined (using bundled software) to create panoramic photos.
Movie Record video; unwanted scenes can be deleted in playback mode.

And I got it for less than $90 with taxes because I had a $20 gift certificate for Best Buy!

Weekly Winners: Feb. 23-March 08, 2014


All shots for the Weekly Winners meme were taken with a Canon Rebel XS or the HTC Inspire 4G Android Phone. More can be found on my Flickr account. Project 365 pictures can be found in this set.

Josh is convinced that I need the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom and the Canon PowerShot ELPH 330. Eventually, I’ll have them both. The phone is guaranteed, 😉 The camera is just a little slower 😉 It’s just waiting until we’re sure something isn’t going to come up that would make the purchases stupid.

They’re in … anyone want some Girl Scout cookies? Just kidding! These are all sold!
