I'm Ingunn. This blog is about learning to make photos instead of just taking them. This is where I collect and express ideas and thoughts, and sometimes I might get sidetracked, too! There is so much to be learned. I have an urge for making life better, simpler and tastier. My picture galleries are in the sections travel and portfolio. I write in English, but I am Norwegian, and comments are most welcome in both languages.

EARTH WONDERS by anaeugenio

Unfortunate events


I had many plans for my blogging and of course my photography this Summer, but I've experienced a setback because the auto focus on my new camera, a Canon EOS 60D,  failed while we were on holiday. As a result, I didn't take half as many pictures as I had planned, and consequently haven't blogged much either. I borrowed my old camera from my daughter, but it was not the same to have that one in my hands anymore. When I returned home I handed the camera in for inspection, and as a small compensation for my troubles, I got to borrow a Canon EOS 7D instead. It is a nice camera, of course, even better than the one I own. I hope to get some interesting pictures of rain with it this week, as the weather forecast promises us nothing but.

I feel that half of the vacation is gone without any satisfactory results. Now I'm home again, it is lousy weather, but I plan another trip where I might get a chance to do some landscape photography. I really hope for better luck!

I shot a few macros while in France, using manual focus. After I took the photo I realised there was a caterpillar in the flower. I hope it evetually turns into a beautiful butterfly!
