Cool Pix

We've had our old faithful Sony Cybershot for alotta years ~ takes super photos, but a few months ago I noticed the battery door refused to close completely.  

Even more notably (and costly), it began zapping batteries after only a few uses.  But I was making do.

Last month I turned 50something, and was elated when Mr. T surprised me with a camera for my birthday! 

This is the Nikon CoolPix L810, 26x zoom.

I love that it's blue!  And also easily held, thanks to the bulky battery compartment.  

Enjoy a reminisce with the music of my youth, while viewing these photos shot with my Nikon:

I named this one "Cardinal Cyn".
Another zoom through the same dirt.
See him eating!?  The Carolina Chickadee with his cute little black cap.
I didn't know we had this one (@right), Purple Finch.

Come back tomorrow ~ I'll have a finished quilt top to show you!


  1. I found a new camera when I was just window shopping - now after seeing your incredible photos I really want one. And yes, I noticed the seed in the bird beak right away. (See that camera is the best!)

  2. Wow... those are some great photos, young lady! Very nice indeed!

    Looking forward to seeing your completed quilt top!

  3. Hi Cynthia,
    Your new camera takes really nice photos, enjoy it to the fullest. Looking forward to seeing your new quilt top.


Thanks for your comments!
