SmugMug Daily Link
I took over 50 shots of this spider web yesterday with both my Canon S3 IS and my Canon SX40 HS, and I failed with both of them to get the crystal clear shot that I wanted:-( I kindof thought that was the case when I was looking at the LCD, and then on the computer last night I confirmed it. I'm not sure what I could have done different. I couldn't get any closer. I was over a guard rail alongside a road and at the top of an embankment. Plenty safe but I'm sure those driving past thought I had lost my mind. I had stopped to get hawk pictures on the other side of the road and was leaving when I looked the other way and saw the gorgeous web. I adjusted the color and contrast to pretty this up a bit which essentially just made it darker with richer color.
Here's another shot where the bokeh is gorgeous:
I tried to shoot up to the sky and moved left an moved right hoping for a better focus lock:
Oh well. I should let it go. Maybe next time.
I think this bad image is pretty neat:
I just love how light and the lens interact sometimes. Taken under a red camellia flower:-)
New cleats, new glove, and new white baseball pants (and red belt you can't see). Johnny is almost ready for Little League:-) We need to exchange Joey's pants so no pic of him yet. And I guess I'd better find some tall socks!
Donnie came for dinner, and I had fun cooking again! I like to cook for folks with an appetite! It's cube steak in gravy, salad with bacon, string beans, Bob Evans mashed potatoes, and sweet potato in a butter/sugar mixture. Oh, and we had sugar cookies for dessert.
Things don't taste quite right to me right now due to the chemo, but I can cook 'er up anyway!
