May I ask the new model??

I think I know what you mean..It reminds one of the reverse paintings they do on the inside of the frosted perfume bottles.
I have a couple of those, like you say, they're done in the pastel tones. Beautiful little pieces of art!

(smile) It's not a new camera, just one more complicated than I'd ever used before. (I'm technologically challenged and still had an old film-using 35mm before marrying in 2006.) It's a 2002 Sony DSC-F717, larger and heavier than the newer cameras, but it takes good pictures, so we've felt no need to replace it.

I'm drawn to Mother earths intoxicating exotic scents.

Its bodily organs

The network of veins

The hardening of its moist bodies

and the explosion of her slipperiness.

havalotta,

You should consider a career in erotic writing.

By popular demand (well, all of three people): the Joe Pye weed buds.

Havalotta, do we need to mark this thread for adults only?

Beautiful.

If I was not one of the original three, count me as number four.

The other day I spotted three bumblebees on one of my sunflowers. I ran to get the camera, but, upon my return, only two remained. Today, however, while outside awaiting the incoming storm (yay, rain finally!), I saw five of them huddled together in no hurry to leave as the storm approached.
