Notice the new digs around here? I wanted something clean, simple, and fresh. I love it, I hope you all do, too. I’ll be able to change the pictures in the header out easily, too, which I love!
Another reason I wanted a change was so I could post bigger pictures. You see, I have recently fell in love with my camera. The same one I have had for threee years. My little Canon Powershot has always taken decent pictures, but it was nothing special. Then a few weeks ago, I discovered the Macro option.
With a Macro lens, you can take super close-up pictures in focus. Amazing. I know, most of you knew this, right?
I thought I needed a fancy $700 camera to take great close-ups, but surprisingly, this is not the case!
I know the pictures I have taken are no where near the quality I would get if I did have one of those big ol’ black cameras with the fancy lenses, but it’s better than I thought I could do, so I’m going to show them off.
Christina over at Pooh’s Corner (check it out, it’s one of my favorites) is a great photographer and posted some macro shots today. She linked up with Blogging From Bolivia for Macro Friday. Since I wanted to share my new “skill” – skill used loosely here – with you all, it was perfect timing for me to link up, too.
Here is my Macro Photo of the Week – Blooms from my mom’s snowball bush:
