I've always loved watching the spray that comes from the waves crashing together!
I'm still practicing with my camera and I didn't find out until today that I wasn't using the right setting. :( Bummer! It's ok though.....I still like these pics.....even though they could have been better. Still so much to learn.....

I took this picture at night, so it turned out a little dark. Don't mind the ugly dishes in the glass cabinet.....I will be getting some new colorful ones to display. Fortunately most of mine were broken when I took them out of the boxes, so now I can get some that match my kitchen. I have my eye on some Fiesta Dinnerware, but they have discontinued the persimmon color I wanted, so I will probably go with the Cinnabar color, which I love also. I will probably have to get a piece at a time because it is a bit spendy, unless I catch a good sale or something.
For some reason the color on the island and at the top of the pic looks lighter than what it is. It is actually a dark brown, but in this pic it almost looks the same as the wall color. I think the flash did that. As you might have noticed in the pic below, we still need to grout the granite around the edge of the island. Hopefully, we will get that done soon to finish it off completely!
I'm still not sure about the color on the island and the brown at the top of the picture....I thought I liked it, but not sure now. I think the island will probably look fine once I get some black bar stools/chairs, but I'd still like to see what it would look like if I painted it black. I might need to change the wall at the top of the pic to the same color on the wall in the kitchen and dining room. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
As you can see I still don't have anything on the walls yet and the green hutch still needs to be painted black, as well as the antique secretary that you can't see in this pic.
The hallway, minus the pictures that will someday decorate these walls.

I was so surprised that this picture turned out so good, since I had no idea what setting I was supposed to have the camera on. Click on the picture to see a closeup.....it's so cool! I can't wait to get a picture of a big harvest moon someday.

Here are some pics I took with my new camera that Andy got me for Christmas. I am obsessed with it, so you can expect a lot of pictures in the future. I wish I had thought to make them a little larger, so you could see just how gorgeous they are, but it's late and I don't feel like uploading them all over again. Sorry! You can click on the pictures to zoom in on them.
This pic was taken around noon! Isn't it awesome?
Most people probably won't think this pic is anything special, but I love clouds!
This is one of my favorite pictures. When you zoom in on the bird you can see how clear it is....I am so amazed with this camera!
I'm still playing with the settings on my camera and learning how it works. This pic prob could have been a little more focused than what it is, but I think this is pretty good when you realize just how far away it really is.
