Camera Clicks – Moon Friday 13th

The Harvest moon, yall know I get so excited to take pictures of the full moon. But this one just didn’t want to really cooperate or it could have been the operator was having a Friday the 13th….😳

Camera Clicks – Rome, Ga

So we went on a short trip to Rome, Georgia…I love this place.

We always try to go downtown and WHAT do we see? CROCHET!

I actually had an opportunity to do a 10 minute photoshoot lol at the Famous Clock Tower.

Shot of the VERY steep hill the Clock Tower sits atop.
Wisdom in the walkway.
Dedications to amazing volunteers.

Historical Locations in Downtown

The story of this Masonic Temple is Civil War era, SO interesting!

The Opera House is pre – Civil War, What, a history!

The Opera house is now a brewery/pub, look at these floors, they really tell a story.
Ode to times gone by…

Next time we go, I’ll be going to the Myrtle Hill Cemetery…did I mention, I Love this place?! #familyroots

Camera Clicks – 100 years & 5 Generations

This lovely birthday girl is my Great Aunt, today is her birthday and she is 100 years old. Can you imagine?

This picture has 5 generations of our little motley crew represented. There were a few times I got choked up thinking of the fun times I had with her when I was a kid. Seeing her interact with my granddaughter, oh it was so touching watching her fuss over the baby.

100 year age difference!
Smooching on that baby!

I once had an American History class in college, we were discussing the period after the depression when the President was trying to put people back to work. I talked with her about why she left the farm to work in a cotton processing plant, she said it was a dare, her siblings never thought she’d do it. She then talked her parents into leaving the sharecropper life to live with her in the “City”.

She never married or had children of her own but she helped look after countless children in the family. Oh how I wish my kids and grands could’ve known her like we did, they’d find out where the worped sense of humor comes from. 😁

Happy Birthday Bunt❣❣❣

Hey Y’all!
Yeah, we had to redo this picture, you see why?

Camera Clicks – Moon & Jupiter

I have this cool app that notifies me of star events. So my app told me I could see Jupiter tonight.

Here is my first attempt…

What the heck? I see spots…I clean my lense and wait for it to acclimate to the 95% humidity, Hello Florida in August!

Ok, let’s try again…

Ok so the tiny spec in this picture, that’s below the white blob of the moon and to the right, is Jupiter. Yep, I have the big lense on. How do people get such amazing pictures of the night sky?

Ok, changing a few settings…

Bam! Great picture of the moon 😁 but where did Jupiter go?

I use a Nikon d3500, I just love it❣

I’d also love any suggestions on settings and right now, I don’t edit my pictures. I am a big fan of Ansel Adams and often think, his pictures are magnificent and he didn’t edit a damn thing, just saying…I know I am a newbie…πŸ“ΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
