I'm purloining a day of the week again making today Macro Monday in order to post these images taken whilst testing the ring flash that I had nearly wrecked by leaving batteries in (oops).
Some of these are my first attempts at using manual focus, not something that I am confident with as I wear glasses and can't trust my eyesight. However, I gave it a try and I am pleased with the results. They are all hand held, almost all straight shots but just one 'painting' sneaked in.
The flowers are an unbirthday gift from my friend Rita, given because I have a December birthday and somehow it always gets sidelined, forgotten or overtaken by events. It is her belief that everybody with a December birthday should be able to nominate an official birthday in the middle of the year. I'll go with that and for mine I have nominated July 6th as that is my husband's birthday so it can never be forgotten.
Thank you for looking. I hope that you like at least some of these. If you do please tell me and tell me why.
P.S. be careful not to throw away blurred shots automatically. One that I took in this session proved perfect as the faux mounting board for several shots.
