New photos on Flickr and crochet art

I got my new Canon camera on thursday and have been playing. Can’t wait till I have time to learn more about it. For now it is pretty much on auto.
I uploaded some to my album and there are some free ones if anyone has a use for them.
I also went looking at the albums of those who commented and found some awesomely interesting art. The picture of bark I posted here under textures was used by an artist. She is using it for the basis of a drawing but while you take a look check out her amazing crochet art. I really like crochet but pretty nuch do the basics. This artist however uses the craft in a whole new way. It opened up a whole new world for me.
Check out her work here.

And if you use or would like to use some of my photos for something creative let me know. I would love to see what you do.


I was browsing on Flickr the other day and came across an awesome macro shot of a water droplet. Take a look at it here and the best part is the photographer has a tutorial on how she did it as well as lots of other great info on Digital SLR cameras on her website. She actually tells you step by step how to set up the shot.
If you have an iphone she also has an app to help you out with your photography.


I have been lucky to be able to have a short visit over Easter to Montreal as my son now lives there. It would have been better if I didn’t get a chest flu while I was there but we made the most of it. We had all sorts of weather from tiny snowflakes on the first day to ice pellets on the second and then beautiful sunshine.
My son has a great canon camera so I was able to take it with us every day and played around and nowI am addicted and when I save enough will be getting my own.
I have finally got around to starting a Flickr album so if you are interested you can take a look here. I have set the photos to not be downloaded but will have some free for you to take and I will be also adding more of my textures there for you.
If you like any and want to use them for something just contact me.
I will also be adding some to the store.
