Saturdays POTD & Shopping

Jim & I went to the mall tonight & stopped in at Ritz Camera to look at some lenses, but instead of buying a new lens right now, we came home with these.....6 filters for my DRebel. They were on sale buy 2 get 1 free, so I decided to splurge since I've been wanting some filters for a while. Now I gotta practice with them & see what kind of fun things I can do. The neat thing is they will also fit the small lens to my Nikon 35mm film camera, but I need to buy a different size for my 300mm lens. Here are 2 pics I took tonight using my new filters. The first one is of some potpourri that I purchased tonight at Pier 1 Imports. I added the bigger wicker balls to it.


This is a picture of my ceiling fan in my sitting room that I used the Cross Screen filter on. I'm gonna love this filter come Christmas time!

We were going to go to a Craft Show today, but by the time we got there, it was almost over, so we decided to skip it. Instead, we stopped by an Open House in our neighborhood on the way home & looked at 2 homes right down the road from us. I really liked the second one we looked at.....it had 5 bedrooms (4 upstairs & 1 down) & I was already planning where to put all of my furniture :) But then Jim woke me up & told me that the next time we buy a house, it's going to be one we build. He's got a good point cause even now in the house we do own, I still feel like it's someone elses house even after being here 5 years now & doing all the remodeling we've been doing. I wonder why that is?

Not sure what I'll post as my photo for tomorrow, but I'm sure I'll be having lots of fun with my new filters :)

Have a great weekend,
Benita

Wow, have fun with all of your new filters, Benita! :) Your photos are beautiful! And I'm like you, I love to just look at houses for the fun of it, just to see how people have things arranged. :)
