PURCHASED A VERY INEXPENSIVE ($100.00) ...LITTLE CANON POINT AND SHOOT

Since both of my older but better cameras are now sitting in a box where I figured I would let them sit for awhile and think about their behavior before I let them out again...

...in  the meantime with a little editing of contrast and sharpness I'm fairly pleased with how the photos of my new little point and shoot came out.  Took various photos around town mostly while the car was moving which is what I wanted to try (I wasn't driving).  Except for the kitten on the chair on my deck the rest were taken from the car.

ANOTHER HOUSE FROM YESTERDAY'S DRIVE THROUGH SKY FOREST


I wish the photos were better - Camera just couldn't do it good - it's getting old, poor thing - I have used and abused it much.

 I was hoping no one was home and could see me photographing their house but this was too good to pass up  Looks like it belongs in a fairy tale.  I think when people live in fairytale houses they are just asking to have their photograph taken.  I would love to meet the garden gnomes that probably live here.

SKY FOREST SNOW

Today, although we didn't get snow during the night all the upper towns did, so we headed out to see how much they got.  No town had that much but we didn't get up to Running Springs or Big Bear and they probably got 4" or more. 

 Here is a beautiful house in Sky Forest that I took a few photos of.  My good camera broke about six or seven months ago and now my second best camera is showing signs of old age.  I've noticed the quality is getting harder to edit to make them look okay.  I am really hard on cameras because I take so many photos and use my zoom a lot.

LAKE ARROWHEAD YESTERDAY

This part of the shoreline we hadn't walked in awhile and I've been waiting for spring and the trees to get their leaves and blooms.  We started walking these various shorelines in October so I was able to see them in fall and winter and the beginning of spring but yesterday wow, so much different with all the trees filled out. 

We had one day of sun which was yesterday and then rain all night again and thick fog today so far with more rain coming.  It was breezy chilly over at the lake yesterday but the walk felt great.

BIG BEAR LAKE AS OF MAY 14, 2019 -

This area of the lake lost  its' water in 2014-15 and was completely dry and was a cracked lake bed for the next four years until this last winter when we had so much snow and rain.  It was so good to walk the footbridge and see how much water has still been flowing into it from the snow melt.  We were up there a few weeks ago and even then it didn't have this much.

So wonderful to see this again.  And, today we have already had over an inch of rain and possibly snow up in Big Bear (although I haven't read the most recent weather reports).
