After having a fairly successful yard sale in the morning, we headed to the local camera shop for my newest toy. Partly paid for by yard sale profits. Today's purchase - a compact macro 50mm lens! I have been itching for a macro lens since I got my dslr, okay so that was just a couple of months ago but still. This is my first experience with this type of lens and photography. Here are my practice, playing around pics from today.
Meet FairyMary. I picked her up at a rest stop in New Mexico on our drive cross country last May. We were moving from California to here in Washington DC. Now we will be making this trip again, but luckily a different route to see some new things! I love this fairy so much I had to do make a black/white image and a color one.
This is my daughter's foot. She saw me pick up the dog's foot for a photo, and made me do the same with her. Her little feet are just too cute!
I went for a little stroll looking for itty bitty things to photograph with my daughter. This was her first experience feeling and touching a shell. It was cool for only a few minutes, then she graciously disposed of it in the trash can.
