JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Kuramar in black and white

I'm still testing the Olympus OMD EM5.  I want to use it as much as possible before we go on holidays so that I am very familiar will all the settings. Modern day cameras have so many more settings than the old SLR's.  I still prefer manual settings but I did a few tests today with the landscape setting.

  1. Hey Judi,
    great to hear from you! You have a new toy I see. Photos look great. Love black and white. Looks nice and sharp too. I am saving the money I get from my phototech articles to put towards a new Canon. Don't know which one yet, but i am well over due for a newbie! HAVE YOU BEEN TO ANY RETREATS OR WORKSHOPS LATELY? I've been scrapping and crafting up a storm. Must be renewed enthusiasm since starting my new job. Kaszazz have got some awesome new products out too which have inspired me. Take care x
