New Camera and Photos of Home

I bought myself a new camera from Costco with part of my year-end bonus. I'm attempting to learn to take better photographs and also to take some photos of my home. Here are a few shots I took of the living room. Not quite desire to inspire quality, but you've gotta start somewhere, right? I think the main problem is that the day wasn't bright enough to do the colors justice. They are all a bit off. Not as bright or saturated.


  1. I can't believe how awesome your house looks! You've done an amazing job. Who is the artist of the painting?


  2. Thanks Audrey. The shaggy cows on my blog are called Highland cattle. Originally bred in Scotland to withstand the elements, which is where I first saw them. There are lots in the U.S. now, even TX, as they can withstand heat also. If I had more space, I'd have a couple. BTW, I came across your blog b/c I love TX (going to Fredericksburg again this fall) and was Googling "texas style". There's not much on the web in that category so keep doing what you're doing!
