Friday Finds 6/13/14

Gosh, this week has flown by ( don't they all ? ) I have a new toy...a Canon 7D ! I haven't had time to take many photos with it yet, but I know I'm going to enjoy it. This is one of the first photos I took, number 3 to be exact ! I also put on my 50mm f1.4 which I don't use very often as I always seem to have focusing problems with it. Anyway, despite that and the fact that the 7D has a lot more autofocus points than my 60D, I managed to take some photos I was happy with. :))
 

My new beadboard from Lowes ( which they very kindly cut in half for me, or it wouldn't fit in my car !). But I can use the pieces as a base and a background together now.


 I found the sweet tray and tea towel at the antique mall. The tea towel is new and was made at a local mill before it closed down.  The cute little pitcher is Polish pottery, a souvenir of my recent trip to Poland.  Isn't it just adorable ?


 The beautiful flower is a coneflower called Tiger Eye, I love the curve of the petals.

  1. Caz, I am so happy for you and your new camera! I shoot with a Canon 7D, too! I took an online class from Creative Live on the 7D to learn all the features and how to use - money well spent. Love your photos for today - beautiful compositions and great focus. That little pitcher - Polish pottery? So cute! Have fun!

    1. Thanks Donna :) I looked at the online class and was able to watch one video. I may just invest in the course, I liked the tutor.

  2. I am glad you are having fun with your new camera! The images all look wonderful! I love your still life set up, everything goes so well together. I love the pop of yellow/gold from the daisy and the depth of field in your third shot. Have a great weekend!

  7. How exciting for you to get a new camera!!! The Polish pottery is just THE best!! I have quite a few pieces, but I didn't get them from Poland...I have found them at Marshall's but not recently. LOVE your tray and linen piece and the coneflower is too cute...a sweet color to go with the dark blue and white! Lovely shots!! Congrats again on your camera!
