The weekly challenge at the Ottawa Flickr group was creative lens flare. Don't know if I quite accomplished it here, but it was fun trying!

Not the best shot, but how often do you get to capture a Cardinal and a Downy Woodpecker in the same photo?

Rachel birthday is officially tomorrow, but because we went for dinner tonight, and we thought she would like to talk to KJ tonight, we gave her our gift early.

I was out delivering orders on Thursday and came across this old abandoned farm house down a dead end road near Finch. I love looking at these old homes. There are so many questions in those ancient timbers - did they leave or did their family build a new home on the farmland beside it? Does the same family still own the adjacent farm? I will never know.

Either someone in the shipping dept. needs to be busier or they've missed their calling in life!

I've been having focus problems with my camera and wasn't sure if it was the camera or the lenses. If you click on the photo of Rachel below, you will notice that she is out of focus, while the background is fine. This is not the way it should be, because I was on center weighted focus on her!

I found this simple test on the internet and from what I see here, it looks like I've fixed the problem. All my camera needed was to have the contacts cleaned on the lenses and camera. I'm relieved because I dreaded the thought of sending my camera away and having nothing to shoot with for upwards of 6 weeks. But then if it had been the camera, I would have had to replace it (with a 5D or a 5DmkII). Such a quandry....Oh well, I can dream!

I was driving up a local sideroad yesterday and there was the usual field of soybeans (if it's not soybeans, then it's corn) but with a small difference - one sunflower in the middle!
