The View from My Porch
After much anticipation, my new camera arrived yesterday. A Kodak Z981. Tonight I parked myself on the porch played with it a bit. There’s definitely a learning curve, but it’s lots of fun. Here are a few of the pics I took from the porch.
I took the humming bird pics from about 25′ away. The light wasn’t great. These are cropped and reduced in size for the web. Click on a thumbnail to view a larger version of the image.
Stay tuned for more!
