I asked a friend at work what type of pictures should I take first with my new camera. See: Another New Camera
She said that since she always likes my flower pictures that I should take pictures of flowers.
When I got home that evening I decided to take her advice and took some pictures of my roses.
These are not the first pictures from the new camera to be used in my blog though. The pictures in Shy Little Kittens were all taken with the new camera.
Here is a closeup of a bloom on my St. Patrick rose bush. You can see the green tinge to the outer petals of the rose. I also like that the rose is a bit damaged by the heat, wind, and insects. It gives it a bit of character.
Here is a selfie taken with my new camera. The screen flips over so that you can see the screen when the lens is pointing at you. When you flip the screen over it automatically sets a shutter delay and has a countdown. I am sure it is really not designed for classic selfies, but rather for group pictures that you want to be in.
But, it works for selfies.
I hope you enjoyed these first pictures.
