well it was time to move along.. and i ran over to Lake Ontario (a great Lake ), and as cold as it was. there was a woman sitting taking photos with her huge DSLR.. i shot off a few and ran back into the car.  we like to come up here during the seasons, to catch sunsets, and to wave to our neighbors in Canada .

  1. I am so glad you are having fun and enjoying your new camera (baby). Just a little information Kathy, describe it as an X-T10 because an X10 is a 4 year old Fuji point and shoot camera 🙂 Have a wonderful 2 weeks in the warmth.

      1. It took a lot for me to sell my full frame Nikon D610 and lenses after being a Nikon user for 35 years Now I am completely happy with my Fuji X-Pro 1, X100T and X-T1 and lenses.

      2. Well… I will hold on to my Nikon for awhile.. Sentimental I guess, I love my D7000 and my 17-260 lens, but they are heavy.. It’s gonna take me a while to part with them 😉 thanks for all your help Joe

        also im not the guru you are, but id never call this a point and shoot

  2. Lol Mrs.O the X10 is a point & shoot you got the X-T10, you gotta have the hyphen 🙂 Love these shots, that poinsettia christmas tree is bang tidy. Am sure Francis will tell you why those conservatories are all built the same way. Your doing really well with new camera, look forward to your Florida pics. Safe travels ❤
