Using my Big Boy camera

Ok, here they are.
Here are some of the photos I took with my "big boy" camera.
Don't get to excited, as all of these photos are taken in auto mode.
The camera that I am using is a Canon 50D, that my husband passed on to me when he got a bigger and better camera for himself.

Here is my peony flower.
I just love, love this colour.
This was my MIL's plant. When she passed away my FIL told me to take it, as he didn't want to cut around it anymore, so it has a special place in my heart, as did she.

This here is just a really pretty wild flower I have growing in my flower beds.

I ran out of things in the yard to take photos of, so I went searching for some victims willing participants….my daughter Kristy and her boyfriend Blake ;)
The were willing ;)
My Kristy is tiny like me, I noticed in this photo that I should have taken the photo a little lower so her head doesn't look like its floating, teehee.

I think Blake was getting a bit bored, lol.

When we made our fence 19 yrs ago, I got Wayne to cut a heart out of each gate.
I thought this made a cute background for Kristy and Blake.
The have been dating for 4 yrs.

I think they were both getting a bit bored and silly by the time I took this one, lol.

I can't wait until my family from out of town comes for a visit.
I have 2 young nephews to take photos of.
Looking forward to my next photo shoot, wonder who will be my next victims…I mean subjects ;)

Hope you all had a Creative Day :)

Tracy :)


  1. Beautiful, Tracy, I'm glad you've had some time to start playing! :)

  2. Well, aren't they cute!
    Glad you had fun with your big boy!
    Next you'll be collecting lenses. LOL!

  3. Oh those are so cute! I love the heart cut out!!! My next guest photographer is on food photography, but after that comes kids posing themselves so that will probably work for your next victims! (if I ever end up with anything interesting in my sidebar, I'm going to make a "victims" page with the family!). :-)

  4. Awwww...sweet pictures by the heart in the gate! They look so cute!

    You be careful for those bears! I like the idea of your DH on the quad...hope his wrist heals soonl

  5. Cute pictures! I think you did a great job taking them

  6. beautiful Photosthe flowers are lovely and your other "victims" dare so cute, expecially at the heart gate.

  8. I think you're doing a great job with your new camera!! Love that you have your mother in laws peonies :) it almost looks like a rose!! Kristy is so photogenic :)
