Big Bird

Another fine example of  how crummy my  camera is!
Ah well.... life is funny... sometimes the things we want to share come out kinda fuzzy in translation. So Here's another fuzzy.

i have been excited this week because this Hooded Oriole is enjoying our feeders on his stop over from somewhere South on his way up Northwards, presumably... perhaps he'll hang around a bit? The lovely splash of Orange-yellow outside my window is like our own personal spot of sunshine darting about.

We may get a Good camera after our tax rebate... Yes ... the Gov. "burrowed" a bit of our money this past year ... so now we get some of it back!

i think a decent camera would be justified.
So....  do you have any advice on a good, reasonably priced camera?
One that translates well Here?
i see Such lovely Photo's out there.

i have been a bit sad these days. So i'm Thankful for my Blogger friends who offer such cheerful words and pictures.
Like this lovely bird (really... he's so bright compared to this photo) i come to these windows on Your worlds and am blessed by your splashes of Son/sunshine.  
i appreciate these So Much! 
Perhaps this sounds odd, but, i am also Thankful for those of you who are able to share disappointments here... knowing we are not alone, is a comfort. 
Not all our trials are exactly the same, i know, but i appreciate being able to offer prayers up for my friends... to in some small way help "carry one another's burdens". This helps me, to not be always thinking of myself. i believe this is good. 

For what it's worth .... i pray daily Blessings for All of you!
i know Jesus loves You more dearly than my words could express.
it's why B.B. & i read His words every morning.
Do You?
Hubby & i read Isaiah 45 this morning
i love verse 9
about the clay arguing with the potter..."What are you making?"
Romans 9:20,21 also speaks of this Potter/clay relationship
"Why did you make me this way?"
have i been feeling like that bratty lump of clay lately.
i just really wish God would let me In on his plans for me sometimes,
it's Really hard to "Be still &
 wait, wait, wait."
but i keep remembering that  His word says:
Ecclesiastes 3:11
"He has made everything beautiful in it's time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

So, today i am grateful for the windows,
the visions of beauty
out there,
the hopes for beauty shared. 
Found beauty,
Eternity set in our hearts
shared and noted.
Thank You
from my fuzzy, buzzy heart to Your sweet Hearts!


  1. I love your little bird Kare! I'm glad he's a cheerful little ray of sunshine in your life. Canon makes some nice little point and shoots that turn out great photos. Try to find one that has a view finder and a screen. Sometimes it's difficult to get outside photos without a view finder because the screens get so much glare you can't tell what you're photographing. Hugs dear friend!!!!!

  2. Thank You Christine! We'll look at The Canon's :)Hubby likes those!
    Blessings & buzz'z

  3. What a happy bird. :)

    My hubby got a Nikon D70 (current model of its class is D90). He is pleased with it but wants to upgrade. One of the problems (in current digital society) is that you HAVE to use the eyepiece viewfinder instead of just looking at the screen on the back. It is a big camera, and not a point & shoot, so it can be a pain at times, but oh! it takes great pics.

    If you could live with that, i bet you could find one easily. A lot of folks upgrade and then have an extra camera. This is digital, i think it is 6 megapixel, but couldn't swear to it. It takes wonderful photos.

    Good luck with this!

    Of course, there are many smaller cameras these days that do a terrific job, too, but they may not have many of the options that the Nikon has.

  4. Wow... Nikon was my Sisters first camera... that was before digital though and it WAS a 'Big Bird' of a Camera;>

    Thanks for the recommendation Kathryn!

    With all the Birds out here it will be nice to have a camera that can catch them for us... i'll have my work cut out for me re-learning how to handle a camera again.
    This is going to be Serious fun!)
    i can't wait to chase Roadrunner down the trails! or hide & wait like Wyle-E-Coyote:O
    Is there an 'ACME' brand of camera?

    Blessings & Son-shine...
    oh & "schmeep-meep!!"
