new designs and new camera

 I have had to buy a new camera:  my previous camera has served me well for many years.  I just love taking pics of my garden, the trees, the sky, the places I go, the people I spend time with so my camera gets a workout every day.  

The pretty glass is a recent purchase - the Pimms tastes good in lovely glass.  I will write more about the shopping later.

The new camera is strange and I am not comfortable with it yet.  I am sure it will become a friend in time.
  

Now that the gum blossom is finished I need to think of something else to do so out come the sketch book and pencils.

I have lots of sketches done already but I am not sure what I want to be doing just now.

Winter is upon us so it gives us a chance to see the elegant shapes of lots of trees: of course our eucalypts hold their leaves throughout the year and drop them constantly so they are never entirely bare.

good to read you have a new camera lets hope you soon work oput its potential.
Sketching looks great, not a talent of mine I am afraid, 2 left hands when it comes to a pencil
A beautiful glass, even water would taste great in that.
