Time permitting, one of my favorite things to do is to get my camera and take off in search of pretty things to photograph.
I was looking back over photos I have taken throughout the months of 2015 and thought it would be fun to share some of those moments in photos. There is not any story to be told, but just moments captured in time.
Just in case you are interested, I used a Canon EOS 5D III camera with a 24-70mm L-Series Canon lens for all of these photos from last year.
The Canon EOS 5D camera does not have a built-in flash. Not being a real photographer, of course I had no idea how to add a flash. Our local electronics store Best Buy told me I should contact the B&H Camera Superstore in New York City (Phone: 1-212 615-8820). I did contact them and they suggested the Canon Speedlite 430EX II flash attachment for my kind of photography.

Sharing a set of photos at the photo contest held last Spring at the local Garden Club.
It was so much fun entering this contest.
Well! Here we are at the end of the month of January already ... How can time go by so fast!! Spring will be here before we know it and I, Lord willing, will be out and about trying to capture some of the Good Lord's amazing artwork with my camera.
I hope you are doing well and enjoying these cozy winter days. Wishing you lots and lots of blessing in this New Year.
