And who isn’t a bit of a “techie” nowadays?  I know I am with what being a woman of a certain age and owning and using a Droid, an iPad, an iPod, a computer, a lap top, a digital camera, and a Kindle….well enough said.  My husband is NOT.   So no gift on this list for him- he who doesn’t even answer or for that matter look at his email, lol.

This first gift just cracked me up! It has twenty-something, thirty-something (or otherwise known as the kids born in the digital generation) written all over it.

Are cameras going the way of snail mail?  Personally I hope not because this blog would sorely miss Murray’s photos.  However, for the less than professional photographer who uses his or her cell phone camera for shooting just about everything, take a look at this! Now you can carry these around with you as well as the extra batteries you will need to keep your Smartphone charged!!!

With Christmas around the corner, 15 days and counting, red is popping up everywhere.  Well actually if you’re looking for it, it really is everywhere or in our case, where you find it. So in this season of RED (and green) I thought it a good idea to continue the series of I See Red and Red Is Where You Find It.

Don’t you wish you had a powerful lens like the one used to take these photos?  All you need is a bright sunny almost-Winter day in Central Park, the lens and of course the eye for spotting these little feathered creatures and the patience to capture their beauty.  I often  refer to the beauty of our world by saying Mother Nature, however, I’m really thinking that only God could create this beauty.  Today we are going to get some close-up photos of these wondrous feathered beings, and maybe a squirrel thrown in for good measure.

Murray Head who is my favorite contributing photographer to this blog, specializes in several areas of photography and you’ve probably seen most of them right here in the blog.  His pictures of wildlife, particularly of birds in Central Park are wonderful.  He is great at snapping photos of kids and dogs and has an artist’s eye when shooting a scene, an architectural detail and especially a face with character.   Today is all about getting a little face time with some interesting FACES.
