The Siberian Iris by my kitchen door are spectacular right now and I’m happy to share them virtually with you.
I wish I could share the weekend with you virtually, too! Hope yours is great!
Can I phone it in two days in a row? Is phoning it in better than not blogging at all? Am I forgiven for not having time to write a terrific post if I make you laugh? Here’s hoping!
I’m sharing this one because it’s pretty relevant in my world right now:
I’m sharing this one because I’m driving on the highway today:
And I’m sharing this one because it really made me laugh:
And I hope that isn’t what Jackie is thinking when he watched us do stuff!
Happy Thursday. It’s almost the weekend!
As always, if you wrote a post for today please share it below. Thanks for joining in!
Yesterday was a . . . day. There were meetings, some on the awkward side, and emails and surveys and end of fiscal year tasks, and more. All of which is to say that my creative energy was rather sapped when it came time to write a blog post.
So, I’m phoning this one in with a watercolor of last Sunday morning’s breakfast tray. Two cups of coffee, two egg sandwiches, and some honeydew melon chunks.
Is it Friday yet?
Let’s take a look back at the merry month of May. First, the photo-a-day mosaic.
The month started with flowers and they just got more profuse as the days went on. Plus plenty of all of my favorite things and people.
And the video:
I do love the way those 1.5 seconds every day really capture the month.
And now we’re on to June, my favorite month of the year!
Welcome to Macro Monday, a weekly post where I will share a photo I took with a macro lens.
Today’s post was not without it’s challenges. First, I tried to attach my macro lens to the big camera. And then realized that my macro lens doesn’t fit the Canon EOS 6D but rather fits my older camera, the Canon EOS 7D. Despite the higher number, the 6D is actually the better camera (it’s a full frame) but the 7D is just fine. Of course the battery was completely drained so I had to charge it, not a big deal, and then yesterday I took some photos. The next challenge came when I tried to upload the photos to my computer to process. The 7D uses a different memory card than the 6D and I don’t have a card reader for that type anymore, having recently replaced the previous one I had that fit multiple sized cards. I had to think way way back to remember how I used to do this and ended up directly connecting the camera to my laptop to transfer the photos.
This will get easier, right?
In the end, I wound up with 8 photos of the center of this gazania. Most weren’t as sharp as I’d like and this one only barely passes muster for me but it’s what I have and it gives me a good place to start from, knowing that practice will improve my rusty macro skills.
Happy Monday, go have a great day!
