Messing with RAW setting

So I started to mess with my camera the other day. I have been used to shooting with TIFF or super fine JPEG, but decided it was time to play with RAW. Well, I LOVE IT!!
What a difference it makes and you can really work with your photos so much more!
So, here are a few pictures of the flowers out front, nothing fa
ncy but hey I love flowers!!

On our walk the other day, I could hear this noise above me, could not see him but clicked a couple of shots where I thot this guy might be hiding. Found him!!

We walk our dogs every day along this creek path that has all kinds of folliage and wildlife, I am always looking for something to catch my eye, usually I am rewarded. It is a beautiful walk just for the peacefulness alone.

This snowy Egret is always along the creek walk, I always look for him :)

Then as I get home I see little things that catch my eye, so will share those as well

some days

Some days I wake and my world is a blur
Like someone closed the shower door
It can't be opened
It can't be cleaned.

I try so hard to focus on that flower
The word on the page
That just yesterday I could read
Today, I need to magnify

You hold my hand to show me,
Where my glass is
Where my glasses are
Where your face is.

Some days, I need you to see
Cause some days,
It closes in
God Damn this darkness

Help me to not trip
As I stubbornly hold my head high
Miss that curb
Pretend that I can see

Some days it just closes in
Sneaks up, steals more sight
Breaks my heart
Makes me need you more.

Update again and Thank you

Seems lately I have been neglecting this page. I need to get a bit more organized with my time.
Again I have had more vision loss and spent the past few days feeling very lost and sad with that fact. It came as a major shock as to how much I had really lost. Of course it is not like I had lost it over night. No, this creeps up, slowly but very steadily lately. Just being told an amount makes it seem like it is sudden. I know better but I still hurt and I still mourn the loss.
A very good friend of mine who has much less site then I do described it as a mourning and it so totally fit in to how I was feeling. She too is going through a vision loss and I also cry for her. I can relate and feel her pain just as much as I feel mine. We are not alone, yet when it hurts sometimes it feels like there is nothing and no one that can make the pain stop, the loss less scary.
So, I spent time writing, crying and talking to my wonderful friends and family to get myself through it. I always do get through but without the love and comfort of friends I know it would take so very much longer.
So this update is a thank you as well.
Today is a new day, I wrote this update without crying, so the healing has begun.
