Strawberry Margaritas and a new Lens!

strawberry margaritas 035

Hola people! In honor of getting my new 40 mm macro lens, I thought I'd give it a test drive with some fresh strawberry margaritas.  So far I'm loving this new lens. It came with a bunch of cleaning utensils for your camera lens like a cloth and a pen.  Getting new toys for your camera is so much fun. This is my 7th camera lens now and I think I'm done buying them for awhile. I always say that, but ended up finding new ones. I really wanted a 55 MM camera lens that had a macro function on there t ...

My new camera lens!

star1 005

  ISO: 1600 F stop: 5.6 Shutter speed: 20 seconds I got a new lens people and I'm so excited! Besides food, another subject that I LOVE to shoot is the night sky. I could look up at the stars all night long. Fargo is terrible for light pollution, so we have to go out into the country somewhere to get a good shot. The lens I bought was  a 11-24mm wide angle lens and so far I'm really loving it. There weren't these many stars when I was taking  pictures last night and the c ...

More Yellowstone Pictures


We spent 3 days in Yellowstone National Park and that's about all you need to spend there. You'll get to see all the major attractions. We already want to go back, because we didn't get to do some hiking or go and visit the Grand Tetons. It's such a beautiful park. Everywhere you turn there's some kind of new scenery to look at and you never know what kind of wild life you get to see. We saw buffalo, elk and different birds.     Where the buffalos ...

Yellowstone National Park


There have been no new recipes lately, because I've been on vacation in Yellowstone National Park. This park is pretty awesome. Every road we have driven on here, is a whole new picture. There's different scenery everywhere you turn. As far as the food goes, it's ok. None of the restaurants I've been to so far know how to season their fries. They don't put any salt on them.What the hell? Huckleberry is the in fruit here, and those berries are in EVERYTHING. So far, I've had huckleberry ice ...
