I like perusing other blogs, but I’m not great at leaving comments. Its something I think you need to get into, and I feel (a lot) that I’m just making a random comment that no one ever reads anyways. Or worse, I make a comment no one wants to hear. I mostly watch/lurk, like I do on forums. I like to read.
When I started blogging again in October, I joined two blogging groups on Ravelry. I posted who/where I am, then started to wail away. And promptly met Pip from across the pond. I call her my blogging pen pal! I like to comment there. I see a similarity in how we go around taking pictures, and that makes it exciting to see what will get snapped next.
Pip has been asking me (:D steadily) to join the Monday Macro group hosted by another photo taking blogger Lisa . I’m ready!
Many of my macro shots are from my own backyard. I use a Canon G9 and occasionally I strap on the wide angle or telephoto add-on lenses.
This is my apple tree. Years ago we pruned it back by pretty much chopping away at the upper half of the tree. The reward was a few years of dormancy, then a spectacular blooming of flowers. I took these shots in straight up and (almost) straight down views.
