Another Give Away & Flowers that say Happy Spring!

Have you met Monica of the White Bench yet? She is such an adorable sweet soul. She is so generous! Just had a give away for 3 Easter Baskets & then has just posted of her giveaway (photo below of the treasures) for her 50th Post. Be sure & hop over to enter. Tell her Charlene sent you. Yesterday the weather was beautiful. It was windy (same today) but, the sun was shinning bright & the sky was such a beautiful blue that I wanted to share this little bit of Spring since so many of you are still in the grips of Winter.
Susan & I took her sister Evelyn (visiting from Houston) shopping in Snider Plaza & we all loved the fountain & the flowers surrounding it.
Who could resist those sweet pansy faces?
And a daffodil is the best at saying "Happy Spring"! Hope you enjoyed my shot of color for all of you facing winter drab.

Oh... flowers. We still have cold white everywhere. I just hung a lovely dried flower wreath on my front door, hoping to invoke Spring.

Thanks for the flower pictures! I have petal envy.

Is this a shopping mall? I can't tell but if it is I would be there everyday just to sit by that fountain!

Thanks for a breth of fresh spring air! :-)

Hi Charlene! Thanks for stopping by my Photography Blog. I have been a professional photographer for nearly 20 years. A few years ago I took the leap to digital and I tell you, I have just now gotten fully comfortable with. I have had years of study with photography and continuing ed. Even a basic class is a good class to take. I can take a good photo with any camera, as long as I know how and the parameters of that camera. Even a point and shoot film camera from the $$ store.

DSLR's are getting really fancy these days. I have pro cameras. They are really heavy duty, rugged made and well do a lot. And as soon as you upgrade, well the company introduces an new generation...

If you like Nikon, they have a D40 that is nice. And I think a D60. I prefer new equipment with warranty. Cannon has some very good cameras as well. And I think they have a great bridge camera, but I have no idea what it is called.

Bridge cameras are good too. A glass is a very good idea. But always keep a little point and shoot that will fit in your purse. :-D

Shop around and do some online research. Good luck!

Charlene, you are adorable!
Thank you!
Flowers... oh, I'd need them! But it is so damp here I don't want to stay outside to pot some!! I'm longing for sunshine to arrive...
Monica xo.
