Canon PowerShot S2 IS 2/1 second F/8.0 11 mm

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Stunning! The fireworks blossom is so perfect. Very timely on the shutter for this one. 5 stars.

@Barbara: Thank you, Barbara ... this is one of my favorites!

Marion from Nanaimo, BC, Canada

Hi Judy, I have decided that no one knows how to light up the stars have to click on them to give a person five stars and because I agree with Barbara that this is stunning I lit up your five stars. :D It really is a beautiful blossom and well timed. It was 95 at our place today and my heat pump is having a terrible time keeping up. It is 78 in here and it is set for 72. I'm really warm. Very unseasonable for Vancouver Island in June.

@Marion: Thank you, Marion for your stars! *S*
That little Canon had so many scene settings - wish I still had it.
