Macro Friday: Harvest Moon

September 24, 2010
ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/200 (55-250 mm lens w/ tri-pod) On Tuesday, I traveled to Detroit for the day. I’m thankful that I didn’t have to spend the night in Detroit, but the trade-off was a lack of sleep (for whatever reason, I don’t sleep well before my husband or I fly even though once I’m on the plane…I fall right to sleep). Anyways, when I got home, my husband took me to get something to eat. By the time we came home, there was a full moon in the sky. It was so incredible that I couldn’t wait to come home. I later learned that this week is “Harvest...
Sky Watch Friday

September 10, 2010
The discussion of “signs” yesterday had me thinking about some of the recent signs I’ve seen that fall is coming. Sure there is a nice breeze in the air…the humidity has mostly faded away…and there is buzz of a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks (of course, I have checked out this speculation yet).

Over the weekend, we visited my husband’s family in the North Carolina mountains (well close…but if I told you exactly where, you’d just be confused) to celebrate my husband’s birthday (which was yesterday…happy birthday sweetheart). On Saturday, we ran a few errands in town and then planned to go back to the house. Well…we forgot to grab a key to the house – so, when we got back to the house, we were locked out. Fortunately, I had my camera plus two lenses including my macro lens. It was pretty hot and humid but I was determined to take advantage of...
Macro Friday: The Snail

August 20, 2010
Have you ever had a photo that you couldn’t wait to share? This is one of those photos. Last weekend, I’d just gotten out of the shower (after going to the gym) and my husband called me outside. I’d taken two steps out the door when he said, “grab your camera.” So, I walked back inside to grab my camera. Of course, it’s incredible humid so I’m walking around the side of the house as my camera is getting acclimated when he pulls back a branch….and there it is, a snail. I immediately started snapping away…sweat pouring down my...
