A Duplicate Post

Tonight is Camera Club night with my Gilford Clickers friends.  I have been working on my photography a little bit, but not as much as I would like.  I mean, I do have two kids who need to be fed, bathed, played with, snuggled, comforted and loved, so it leaves little time for much else.

I posted the following on Gilford Clickers.  Check out our blog to see all the other contributor photos, they are great!

  1. great photos! I LOVE that your camera has such a high iso and does not look grainy at all. this is one of the biggest reasons I want a new camera. My XT does not cut it in these low light situations!

    I see you got yourself a nifty 50! :) I love, love, love mine. That low aperture is awesome!

  2. First, GORGEOUS photos! I am totally consulting you when my time finally comes to get a new camera (ours is 9 years old!)

    Second, if you'd like to, send me an e-mail next time you're headed to Portsmouth...Strawberry Banke is one of our favorite haunts, and I'd love to meet one of my wonderful blogging friends:-)


  3. Great shots! I love the good old nifty 50 too. Your camera sure does take good shots at a high ISO, mine are too grainy also.


I love comments!
