Around 6pm, I can see the sun beginning to hang nice and low in the sky. The light hits everything in the front yard just the right way – it makes me get all antsy – which makes me get up to run outside to take a bunch of pictures.
It really is fun having a camera. It opens up a pretty nice world. A world that somehow needs to be photographed. Listen, I know my pictures are of just a bunch of stuff, but I really do enjoy trying to make something out of nothing. I mean, I’m not sure how many comparable men were outside a half hour ago, trying to get a decent shot of a Hemlock bud. I’m just not sure of that, but since I was, I suppose that says something about my personality.
These pictures are a bit different than those from my last post. First, I changed the lens. While I used my Sigma 10-20mm for the last bunch, and took pretty much everything at 10mmm, I decided to get some close-ups this go round. I changed lenses to my Canon 55-135mm and tried to take these at 135mm. It didn’t work out all the time, but these are all mostly zoomed in as much as I could go. Almost all of them.
Doing close-up shots reminds me of why I wanted a macro lens last year. If you don’t know what that is, do an image search for “macro photography” and you’ll see what they do. It’s pretty awesome.
Anyway, here are my latest random pictures. Enjoy.
