What have you done NOW?



New lens play

Since I got my camera out and dusted it off a few weeks ago, I’ve been more motivated to take photos and try new things.

I’ve been saving up for about three years now to get a macro lens for my DSLR and I finally amassed enough to get my lens! As soon as it came in the mail, I popped it on my camera and tried it out. Then I googled “how to use a macro lens” and read about a dozen articles. Then I read the teeny tiny instruction book that came with the lens. I probably did all of that in the wrong order, but I managed to get some cool photos!

I decided to start with my fish tank, because there are a lot of neat things in there. A tiny snail, a fish, and a lobster! I caught sight of our snail, Mr. Snarfles, sliding around on the glass, and started shooting.

Long lost photos

I’ve been at it again. That’s right, slacking πŸ˜‰ Here are a pile of photos I’ve been hoarding for a while.

Summer Tea
Summer drinks on the balcony – lemon iced tea….
Celebrating anything by setting things on fire! I love sparklers!
Ants on cheese
Sometimes the neighbours throw things off their balconies onto the grass out back of our building. It makes it difficult when taking the dogs for a quick pee… especially when dodging ant-infested cheese!
Abandoned house
I liked the textures of this boarded up door in an abandoned house nearby…
tomatoes on the window sill
Squirrels like to eat my tomatoes, so I bring them in while they are still green to ripen on the window sill. I just love the colours!
rain storm
I was watching the rain one day and loved the interesting light patterns created on the pavement. Cool stuff!

Photo Friday!

Well hello there! I’ve been instagramming again. I snap photos here and there and after a while I have a little collection of photos. It seems that using this app brings out a different beast in my creative side. Most of the instagram pics I snap seem to have a certain feel about them. Here are some more “gems!” Β Warning: the last photo is a little racy… I left it to the end so that you’d have the choice to scroll that far or not πŸ˜‰

Morning tulip
Photo of a tulip with morning dew on it. Pretty little guy.
I like that this picture ends up being about the texture of the road, and not the shadow…
I really liked the shape of the glass and the texture of the bubbles and the table…
weed garden
Weeds can be pretty sometimes…

WARNING: Scary Photo below!

flat mouse
Levi found this squashed mouse by the side of the road… Mouse pancake! Poor little thing.

Photo day: Week 2!

Time for some more photos! I had a little less time and inspiration this week, so there was less to choose from – but I managed to find 6 photos that I found acceptable to post πŸ™‚ Hope you like them – or at least this post kills 5 minutes of your day πŸ™‚ Happy Friday everyone!!!

Water droplets
Water droplets formed on the inside of my water bottle

Up up and AWAY! No one is allowed to use this ladder without permission... I want to climb it!
