One year ago today, I got possibly my best birthday present ever. (As all of you will probably attest.)

I got my lovely little (well, big) powershot camera!


Since then, I’ve learned about shutter speeds, aperture, f-stop numbers, tripods, lens hoods and lots of other camera stuff. And this blog has enjoyed lovely, professional looking photography.

So, to celebrate… I’ve picked a top ten best pictures from sets I’ve put on here!Β 

Enjoy the cameraversary post, guys! πŸ™‚



The second one here is framed on my wall.

From post: Trees, Rocks, Oceans & Sailboats



I love the story in this one. And the sharp contrast black and white. ❀

From post: North Cascades & Diablo Lake



This (you’d never guess) was at an ice cream place. But it’s the best ice cream place ever, so I’m not surprised. πŸ˜›

From post: State Fair Entries



A recent favorite, and another that hangs by my bed. πŸ™‚

From post: Washington Park: Cliffs & Seals & Porpoises, Oh My!



The lighting! *squeals* I just love that lighting. πŸ˜€

From post… *scratches head* I didn’t put this one up, apparently.



Again, love the story in this one. ❀

From post: Little Sibs in the Rain



I could just look at that foreverrr… the reflection and the woodwork and everything… *starts absently humming Horatio Hornblower*

From post: Hawaiian ChieftainΒ & Lady Washington



And, definitely the top place winner.Β 

I won best in division with this at the fair, guys. And I’m still freaking out about it. πŸ˜€

  1. Wow, these are beautiful pictures! Happy Cameraversary to you. πŸ˜› I LOVE the last one and the one of the barn swallow (I love them all, but those were my favorites πŸ˜‰ )!

  2. ohmilivinggravy!!!!!!!!!!!

    So I knew you were a photographer, but I haven’t followed you enough to see a whole lot of your photography pics. And when you said you did photography, I was just thinking, ‘okay, that’s nice, like every single girl around the block loves photography,’ you know.
    But ohmigosh, I totally eat your dust — you’re AMAZING!!!! I’m so JEALOUS I didn’t take those pictures. I’ve placed first in state fairs several times with my photography, but never the best-of-show I’m always aspiring for…
    When I get email back, I’ll have to mail you some pics of my winners. Of course, my camera is nothing like yours. Its just a tiny little $250 Coolpix L28 Nikon. Nothing like your professional equipment. Well, at least now you know what to get me for Hanukkah! *still laughing out loud*

      1. Wait… I still gotta figure out something to get you for your birthday… Resorting to the Jewish calendar helps give me some time. Thank your parents for me, Rosey!! πŸ˜›

  3. Love them all so much! I love the last one especially.

    And you’re making me consider posting more of my own photography. xP

Any thoughts?
