Well, hail


We just had a nice hailstorm. Doesn’t happen around here too often, so it’s pretty exciting. This is our teak patio table, dressed in ice.

Holy Macro, it works!

Macro Mustard

I know this is kindergarten to many of you, but I had no idea I could do this before. It’s just on auto, set for macro, no editing. And the wind was even blowing a little bit, so it wasn’t perfectly still. To me, it’s fabulous. And it looked even better on full-screen – kind of shocked me when I saw it, actually.

I just never knew! It’s a whole new world…

Feeling clueless

Hurray, the camera is here!  Oh no, now I get to feel stupid!

I had no idea how little I knew.

I mean, I’ve always been able to take pictures.  I like to frame up a nice shot, point and shoot.  I’ve never really done much except use the Auto setting, though.  Now, trying to take closeups of jewelry and get everything right….oh man.  There is so much information on the web, and I’ve been reading it – maybe a little overwhelmed right now, in fact – and I haven’t yet gotten just what I want.
You can see my banner above.  That’s an attempt (one of many, of course, and the Chosen One for now. But I expect to do much, MUCH better!)

The beginning stages of learning something new.  Exciting, lots of possibilities (including the possibility of utter failure), frustrating, hopeful.  I have the information, I have the technology, I just have to apply myself and keep trying.  I KNOW I can get this.
