Bonne Maman

    Newer Older

    I will openly admit that I bought this jam for the pure and lone reason of taking photos of the jar.
    I don't even eat jam!!

    ABMJG, Bello Uccello, uncommonmuse, and 24 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      and the jar is fabulous! I bought a cute journal the other day I'll probably never write in, so I could take pictures of it. LOL, we are crazy! :P

      It is the best strawberry jam, though! You chose wisely, looking at the label and jar : )

      Yummmmm, love Bonne Maman....how are you liking the new cam? =)

      haha the shipping would cost more than the jam!

      Im loving it Lulu. Its sucha step up from the 350D.
      Sean asked me if it was going to take better pictures. I said "no,
      but the features it has will allow me to take better pictures."
      and I already think it has allowed me to do that.
      I don't think I wouldn't have gotten the shot of the water droplets on the leaves that I did with the 350D.
      The screen is soooooo much bigger than the 350D and it fires the shutter so much quicker.
      Plus...when I was first mucking around with it, I turned it around and did an arm length self portrait and it actually worked.
      I could never get them to focus with the 350D. The 40D had no problems with it whatsoever.
      I'm very happy...the only thing I have found that I don't like so far, is the ON/OFF swtich. Its in a weird place and hard to get into when its sitting on something. But that's no biggie, at all.

      Manda I want to tell you that I stumbled upon this site and your picture of the bonne maman while doing a internet search for good preserves.

      Long story short this picture along with the others on your stream inspired me to join this site and take pictures as a hobby!! Thanks

      Sincerely,
