The camera may be kicking my butt. This is not what I'd call a "point and shoot", as the settings are very fiddly and I haven't quite worked them out. I did find a fish-eye setting which I promptly used, as it brought to mind Vicki's fabulous fish-eye photos from last year (or was it the year before).
After all the time and effort I've put into figuring out this camera I wonder if an SLR would have been easier.
The amaryllis have not fared well. The "Big White", which is pictured, fell over during the night, as it was very top heavy. Have you ever seen an amaryllis with 5 blossoms?! She has 5 (that's stacked!), so it's no wonder she toppled. The other amaryllis, was knocked right over and hit the floor. Both plants have been saved and will brighten my room for another week or so.
The week has been too busy, but next week I'll have a very special post and give away a new book. More on that over the weekend. I plan on catching up with a knitting update and maybe a few more sky pictures, too! whew
