Favorite Things Friday

I have this camera that is half fancy smancy. I soo yearn for a real Nikkon D-something camera that takes real pictures. But, alas, we still have the college fund to think about (err...or the Still Paying for Danielle's College fund anyway)

So I decided that I was just going to buckle down and learn how to use my present camera better. After all, it does some cool things that I am just not taking advantage of. So, first off, I decided to learn how to use the Micro and Macro settings work. I have been frustrated in the past that the zoom really didn't zoom all that well and I couldn't get any good focus on an object at close range. Enter: Macro function. Who knew? I'm sure you all did, but me? Not so much.

Take a look at this picture. I know it's too dark but good detail, right? And yummy muffins, I highly recommend, by the way!

Those look wonderful. Strawberries, blueberries, and bananas too! I'm definitely going to put this on the "to make in the States" recipe list

It's never actually occurred to me to try all those functions on my camera . . . once again you inspire! : )
