Good morning. It's cloudy and a bit on the nippy side, but I'm sure it will warm up some when the sun comes out later this morning. I'm at work, so this may be a rather short post. I did want to share something fun with you though.
Yesterday, the new toy for my camera came in the mail. It's a Raynox Super Macro Conversion Lens. (Model DCR-250) You know me. I had to try it out right away. So I put it on my Tamron lens, and went outside to find something to practice on.
My pink rose tree has some tiny new rosebuds on it that are about 1/2 inch in size. One had a couple of petals just beginning to unfurl. I had to use the tripod, and get right up close to the bud. My photos aren't the best, but being my first try, they aren't bad either. Here's a pretty one of the rosebud.
When I have more time, I will try to do photos of "with" and "without" this new conversion lens. I took another interesting one of a little orange mum, but I'm saving that one for Monday. For anyone who is interested, this new toy costs under $80. Today if I get a chance, I'm going to try it with my 50mm lens.
This week coming up, I want to start getting caught up with my photo class lessons. I have started them, but with this cold that I have, I've not been in the mood for watching videos and studying. All things in time.
Yesterday, I did a bit of research on airline ticket prices. Ooooweee! The prices keep going up. I get emails telling me of super duper low prices if I book now, but when I check them out, they are not so good. I really don't like that kind of advertising. Tickets to Orlando starting out at $149 round trip actually turn out to be more like $600 round trip.
Well, I've prattled on enough. The Mrs will be awake soon and wanting some breakfast. So till tomorrow, take care and Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
