TAKING MY CAMERA FOR A WALK

I bought another camera.  It's an upgrade from my Nikon D40 to a slightly used D3100.  More megapixels plus video capabilities.  I just bought the body since I already have lenses so it wasn't a major purchase.  The other morning I took it for a walk. I sized these shots down to 500px so they'd open quickly.   Still fumbling with new buttons and the autofocus. There's always so much to learn.

Oh new cameras are always so exciting I found a macro setting on the camera I have had for a year who knew? I was not even sure what macro was before reading Nancy's blog:)
Have fun yours seems to be working great.
Now where did I find that darn setting for macro, now I know why I don't mess with the buttons:)Maybe have to wait another yeat to find it. B

My son, Genius, likes the bottom pic. And also one a few posts back, the black-and-white bird in flight with the long tail.

What's with you and Linda Sue taking such beautiful LEAF photos? Oh dear, I must practise more. My camera can do it, but I haven't figured out (3 years down the line) how to use it properly.

Linda Sue said...

I like the last photo the best. Leaves me wondering what's around that corner on the path.

Oh please tell me, how do you size down your pics? I have no idea and really need to learn.
Your leaf shots are lovely.
