    • When I was five, my mother went around to all the widowed wives of the second generation of ranchers of the Similkameen, many their daughters, the generation of the 1860s, and collected flowers from gardens like this, until modernism tilled them under and her garden went silent. It’s good to work at rebuilding these gestures.

      • I have figured out how to use this camera! It has a very fine lens that is best for close ups and short focal length work, even at a distance. Very fun, and can lock into f2.8 through its full range.

      • Yes, I remember you bought a new camera, now you have mastered it indeed! I am a bit envy – a good camera is on my wish list for a while now, but the truth is I even don’t have enough time to get used to it. And on the go I too often forget my (old ) camera and just grab a phone . Which is a pity on some occasions, like the last one with the young owls ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
        Keep on taking great pics and thx for sharing them!

      • Thanks!

        Of course, you donโ€™t need to worry. I take my share of lousy pictures, especially with this camera, as it canโ€™t do everything, but what it does it sure does well!
