Lens-Artist Photo Challenge- Photographic Groove It's pretty clear that my groove is animals and nature; as in flowers, sunsets and rural places. I really like taking macro shots too. Macros show a whole other level of detail that's unknown to the naked eye. This is a Lantana petal with a drop of water in the... Continue Reading →
Photo a Week Challenge- Bokeh I think the background adds perspective on this one. The green background makes this red really pop and there's some bubble bokeh.

It's been raining and severe storms had been plaguing us all last week and Saturday was suppose to be a... Continue Reading →
Nancy Merrill's Photo A Week- Depth of Field Another great topic from Nancy! Here are my submissions.
I really love Macro shots. You get to see so much more through a macro lens than you can with the naked eye. I look at the macro flower shots I've taken and it's like "Wow! I never knew it looked like that!" Or I see a critter on there that I wouldn't have seen... Continue Reading →
