Learned A Few New Things

It sure was a nice day today. The wind didn't come up until  around 3 this afternoon. I don't think it was as hot as they said it would be either.

My friend Tom showed up and we first started looking at my computer t look at Picasa and see what I  was having trouble with . He also put a short cut icon for WordPad so I can find my documents from Microsoft Word that I somehow lost.  On his next trip out he will fix Microsoft Word unless I find working with WordPad just as easily.

Then we moved on to the camera and figured out a few more things. 

Added a little more color This flower was taken with PowerShot

Taken with the PowerShot

 this was taken with the rebel and for some reason would not take the crop sure didn't need my arm in there holding the flowers still

Also taken with the Rebel
This is getting very interesting and I think I have learned quite a bit from Tom.  Can't thank him enough. Thank You Tom!

Tomorrow I will pick up my privacy tent and then rethink the packing of the camper once again. There just has to be a way to eliminate that big tote.  So I can fit in an ice chest for the up coming trip.

Good Night All


  1. been waiting to see the pics, they are brilliant, great color and detail

  2. Good job with the pics. Now you're ready to capture the world.

  3. Glad to see you were able to post pics again. Pics look good as well.

  4. I'd say you're getting the idea!! That's a beautiful flower!!! Hope you figure out the ice chest...I bought one of those plug in ice chests! You can plug it into electric socket or the power outlet in the car or use ice! I plug it in the night before to get it cool and put my stuff in and add ice later. It does take up some space tho!!

  5. Hi Lucy,


    Good Morning John,

    Yes I am getting the hang of it all. End of next week I'm off for a trial run on the camera and camping. I'm so ready to get out of here.

    Hi Tom,

    Just had a little glitch as you can see in the one photo for some reason the crop would take no matter how many times I tried.
    I thank you a thousand times for all your help and it has been great hangin out with you too.

    Hello Weekend,

    Thank you!

    Hi Sondra,

    Yes I think so too.

    The ice chest is a big problem when you don't have much room in a camper shell. But I whirled things around in my head.(not always reliable) and I may have come up with a solution. I will still need to buy a small battery like for a motor cycle so I can charge things.

  6. Gorgeous, gorgeous flowers! What is that pink one at the top?

    Hope you can make room for your ice chest! You will figure it out!

  7. What fun you're having, Jo.... very pretty shots! Are you talking about a ... what are you talking a BIG TOTE... what kind of tote are you toting....

  8. Hi Sharon,

    I can't remember what it's called.

    I'm sure I'll figure it out going to go through everything tomorrow morning. Have to get started really early as the heat builds fast now.

    Hello Carolyn,

    The tote that holds plates, cooking supplies things like that.
