Fruit battle/segregation

As per Tkins' suggestion in the comment section of this post, here are some apples and grapefruits arranged to show some very "human-like" ideas (I didn't have any I improvised!). I almost feel bad for that grapefruit in the last picture. He looks so lonely!

I've been having a blast with the camera being back in the house. The only trouble is that I'm starting to annoy my subjects. So, I need a bit of a challenge. Does anyone have any ideas/requests/suggestions for a photograph subject? I'll do my best to come up with something for anything that anyone suggests. As for ideas, I'm open to anything except my family members, (cats included), since they have been the subjects of wayyyyy too many of my photos so far. So, let me know!

Canon Repair

The camera is back! It seems like we've been without our camera forever. In reality it was for about 2 weeks. It was gone for a week, then back for a few days, then gone for another week. Canon's repair statement indicated that they had replaced the entire shutter assembly. Which, I assume is a pretty major repair.

The camera has been taking pictures without the dreaded "err 99" returning again for a few days. It seems to me that Canon really dropped the ball on the initial repair. After all, if the shutter assembly needed to be replaced, it should have been done the first time! Oh well, stand by for some new pictures in the next few days.

Steam Punk Spider

Remember this picture? I put it to a vote and the people have spoken. It's now titled "Steam Punk Spider"! When the weather warms up a bit, I'm going to go back to this spot and get some more shots. It's a really interesting feature and location, especially with the train bridge and the coulees in the background. I think that I can do some more with my camera there and would like to experiment a bit with different angles, etc...

Biscuits and a camera

So, I got the camera back yesterday from the service center at Canon. It had a repair slip that read "repaired". Not exactly a great explanation. I was so excited to get the camera back, that I took a picture of the only thing in the house I hadn't taken a picture of yet....biscuits.

I'd also like to note that shortly after taking this picture, the error returned! So, I'm shipping the camera back to Canon again. What a pain. I'm going to keep the camera over the weekend so that hopefully I can get some good shots and then send the camera back on Monday.
