Today, I have been reading many posts on some of the blogs that I usually follow plus finding some new blogs that I have added to my Google reader. This action is a quality break from working on projects during my "summer-time off."
This summer I bought a new Canon Rebel camera and have tried it out a bit. I think it is going to be awhile before I feel comfortable using it. The two photos on this post were taken with my new camera. The top one is an impromptu shot of my sweet dog Sal (sallie tomato - real name) and the other is of a neighbor's horse that I often notice as I ride past its barn. He usually stands outside the barn looking rather majestic. I just had to take a photo of him -- yet, when I walked close to his corral to take his photo he played shy with me. Like humans, we often seem confident to strangers when viewed from a distance, yet on closer inspection we can be rather timid.
For those that are aware that my house is for sale -- it still is for sale. Seems one has to price way below what was paid for a house in order to sell it. Some folks are getting great buys as a result of this "down" economy. Europe, in many places, is in worst shape than us so I should not complain. (but I do a little bit)
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. (although it doesn't officially start until June 20th)
