Doing What I Love, A Rose is a Rose

Pin It
 Here at the condo, I don't have roses. So I go and shot pictures of them all the time. Nothing makes me happier !
Most of these were shot pretty true as they are. I'm not a big, let's redo it in Photoshop person.

No roses here at the condo bothers me, but rules are rules. I may have to go to a meeting. To go or not too! HUGE question.
Probably.....not.

Husband shot me shooting pictures, umbrella is for sun cover or shadows on the flowers. Here in Florida full sun is hard to get around.  I am just showing these couple, I shot 243 photo's of roses. Thank you digital camera.

Pin It

 Husband asked and I am always going, he fishes and I take pictures, a day at the beach.

"Playing with Lunch"

Playing with Lunch on Florida Beach by Beth Ann Strub

I am a point and shot girl, it's what you shot, not the camera and with me it's the getting out of my box. I'm not a bird person.....at all. But, I sucked it up and shot, shot and shot photo's. I have lunch's entire process.... almost 30 pictures? Love digital.

Husband and his friend

Playing with Lunch on Florida Beach by Beth Ann Strub


I am VERY self contained when I go, swimsuit on, dress over, sunscreen, towel, book, chair and camera. 
Husband wants to fish, not take care of me, it works great !
