Well, I finally got my fresh Ontario strawberries!
They followed this mouth watering Prime Rib . . .
Grilled to perfection by The Cowboy along with garlic baked potatoes & onions – another of The Cowboy’s specialties. I was too busy eating to take photos but the sides of fresh asparagus and tomato/cucumber salad with Italian dressing and feta cheese were scrumptious as well!
Joining us for this summer-time meal was Nancy and her daughter, Suzanne.
Remember what I said about the camera? It’s like everybody froze – mid air!
The other pretty lady at the table is our niece Natalie.
Lots of good food, visiting and chatting with lots of laughs . . . that is until the camera comes out!
And that busy little girl in the background is Natalie’s daughter – our great niece Kiera.
As soon as dinner is over – what else is there to do in a campground?
Well it must be time to roast marshmallows.
Sounds easy right?
Well first off we need to be very patient and wait for the fire to be started:
then the perfect giant roasting stick had to be found for the giant marshmallows:
Finally the tasting!
and the Sharing . . .
Now that’s what summer is all about!
Now for a little photography fun
My everyday ‘go-to’ camera is a Lumix Panasonic that has taken literally, thousands of pictures.
It’s a mid sized camera with a 12X zoom that’s easy to grab and just point and shoot.
Then every once in a while I put on my big girl panties and reach for this one:
My Nikon D-80 DSLR with a wide angle lens as well as a zoom lens.
I haven’t taken the time to experiment much with it and the settings are still on ‘Auto’.
A friend of mine even gave me a couple of filters for it – I have no idea what the filters will do!
It’s a much larger camera and not as easy to carry around – especially for the type of photos that I take. I prefer candid as opposed to posed shots preferring behind the scenes rather than shooting the main event. I think you can capture the more natural side of people.
Admittedly, it’s hard to be inconspicuous when you’re lugging around a 10 pound piece of equipment
Yesterday I shot a few flowers - next to kids, my favourite subject . . .
That one is SOOC – Straight out of the camera.
Then with a little editing in Picasa, the next 3 are the same photo.
Now a simple Tiger Lily – same thing – the first one is SOOC:
Just a few more random shots:
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day out there and doing exactly what your heart desires.
