Sunday Funnies, Snow, and Shadowshot Sunday
Three exciting topics this Sunday morning! Lucky you!
But, first, something even more exciting! You can probably guess that I mean,
Excitment #1. Boo lost his rope ball. I threw it and it disappeared. After searching, both of us, I figured it must have gone over the fence. Boo on the other hand decided it was caught in the pluot tree. It was a rope ball with lose ends, so did catch on things.
I search. I climb up onto the concrete block edges. I peer in the branches. I shake the branches. I break off nasty diseased branches. No ball. Every time I tried to tell him it wasn't there he insisted it was. Here he is, "Looking right at it, Grandma!"
After many attempts to find it, a pretty noticeable pink rope ball, I ask Boo, "Boo, you say it's in a tree, but could it be in a different tree?"
I turn, and there it is, hanging in the nearly leafless peach tree, right behind us. What a dummy of a Border collie.
It was cold Saturday afternoon. I hadn't realized how cold the night had been until I noticed the snow.
Yes, this next is the same view. It's taken with my iPhone, an old 5c. I was comparing its distance photos to a camera. Sure, it's an old camera now, but, when it was new, it was expensive. For distance, it did a better job zooming in on the snowy mountain while keeping the pretty autumn trees in focus. With the phone it all got a bit grainy. The camera has a macro mode, but the phone's camera does a much better job close-up. This little test is due to something another blogger wondered on Saturday, what camera to get for birds? Ramblin' with AM
I haven't used the camera in years. I got it out a few weeks ago to attempt to get a picture of the most beautiful moon and clouds I'd ever seen. The battery was dead, and normal batteries don't have what it takes to power a camera. So, no photos of the most beautiful moon and clouds I've ever seen. I have another camera, a little Sony that's also older. It had no batteries at all. I don't keep cameras on me, so I think the phone will be what I use unless I take a special trip somewhere, which is extremely unlikely! I do plan to get a newer phone before long. Not newest, but newer than a 5c.
The chances of lounging on the deck in the sun are low now that the cold and rain have arrived. I packed away the umbrella, the butterfly chairs, and their covers. The deck was an interesting pattern of legs and shadow.
Thanks for dropping in. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
