Photography Stuff...

I wanted to mention a couple of things that are related to photography.

#1 There are only 17 days left to vote for my photos in the NYIP contest I entered. If you haven't yet voted, please consider doing so soon. It would mean a lot to me and be a huge help! Here are the links:

Main Street category: Title - Long Ago...

Faces In The Crowd category: Title - Cooling Down

Pets & Wildlife category: Title - Watching & Waiting

So far I am in the running with all three photos, but a lot can happen in just a few days!

#2. My Mom bought me a new lens for my camera as a birthday gift. I got to experiment with it a little and had a lot of fun. It's a two-fer! Meaning I got a wide-angle panoramic and a super macro lens.

Here are some pics I took with the macro. Enjoy!

The tip of a car key.

A microfiber cleaning cloth.

The edge of a dime.

The threads on a very small screw.

A close look at some tiny flowers in my back yard.

The closed petals of a Rose of Sharon.

Hey SG, I love your rose :)

We bought a digital SLR a few months back, I used to do it at school and loved it so it is something I have always wanted. Haven't got around to getting into it yet though, too busy plus need to buy lenses etc which is $$$

Glad you liked it Sherrie! What camera did you get? My next step is a digital SLR. This camera is as close as you'll get (Sony DSC-H2), but still not what I'll need when it's all said and done. I'm hoping to get the money together for a Canon 5D. :0)
