My find this week is part of the courses I’m participating in, Kim’s Be Still 52 and her Start to Finish Round 2 classes. I have always been perfectly content with my Panasonic ‘bridge’ camera it only has one lens but can go from wide angle to zoom ( and a pretty impressive zoom) f2.8 to f8 as well. But I have always hankered after a Nikon so when Mark and I walked past our local secondhand techy shop and I saw a Nikon it was love at first sight and such a good price. It has has hardly been used but it’s not full of all the new features, but it is sturdy and I love it….

I only have the kit lens but that is ok it will be good for me to have the restriction. It takes great photos and is so accurate….

Immediately I started a shoot for Kim’s Start to finish ‘ On the Hook’. I used my clothes airer and pegged my favourite linen tea towel to it.
On the Hook
I needed to make very few adjustments in Lightroom it all flowed…..

Then today I was finally able to cut my Peonies and I carried them dripping into my sunroom and played…….
And finally remembering the towering influence of Maya Angelou who died this week……..

  1. Lovely images Viv…….and those white peonies…..so gorgeous! The petals look like fabric. I bought the same camera three months ago; still struggling with all the settings, but I'll get there 🙂

  3. Lovely images! Congratulation on your Nikon. I am sure you will have years of happiness with it. Ahhh, to be able to grow peonies. They will not grow here in the desert but luckily Trader Joes has them for a few short weeks. Love your tea towel!
