I had the easy job. God did the *real* work.

Thanks, H, you're a sweetheart.

I'm guess that yellow stuff is what's making me sneeze and making my eyes burn! Oh well, I guess it's a small price to pay for such beauty.

One Word: ACHOOOOOOO!
(Beautiful close up)

Javier said...

Dan, this is very captivating! The colours and textures are a joy to watch! I really really love it!

Cheers!

Great to hear from you, Javi. Have you taken your second photography class? You are going to do SO well with it. You've got great vision and your sense of design is off the chart. I suspect I'll be taking classes from YOU before long. In the meantime, let me know if I can do anything to assist or help in any way. Anything!

There is so much pollen here, that when you walk you leave footprints in it! ...George rinsed off our car and there was a river of yellow water down the driveway. It's crazy!! I've never seen it like this before. ---but then again, I had never seen snow in South GA either.

Beautiful shot... whether I needed to see any more pollen or not ;)

Dan said...

You've had quite a Spring down there, Jay. And if my memory serves me, you're gonna have quite a week this week, too. All the best to you, Jay. I'll be saying a little prayer that you have smooth sailing the rest of the way.

Thank you so much Dan! I really appreciate your words. :)

I'm playing with a really old reflex camera, a German Praktica Super TL from 1968! They don't let me use digital cameras yet cause they say I ought to learn the ropes first, which is true!

I've got a few ideas that I want to put into practice. I'm really excited about this. Can't wait to show them to you and get your opinion!

I really really appreciate your support! Thanks my friend!

Dan:

If I may ask a technical question ... what sort of macro lens did you use to capture this wonderful close-up shot??

TC,

I used a 105mm Micro Nikkor. It's the only macro lens I own. It's tack sharp. It's also a good lens for portraiture, but the darn thing is almost too sharp for some people -- you see every pore and wrinkle in excruciating detail...

Great to hear from you.
