164: New Toy

Top row
(left to right): Pop Wagner, performing in a weekend house concert; barite rose, from my rockhound days as a kid. Middle row (left to right): home sweet home on my Wii control; patterns in stained glass. Bottom row (left to right): back off, get yer own tasty sammich; extreme salt shaker action.


With the money I earned from leasing this photo to the City of Winnipeg to use on their website, I treated myself to an EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens for my Rebel. And I am absolutely loving it at the moment; I've barely even scratched the surface of what it can do to improve my game. It's just fun to see things around the house – little things, particularly – in a whole new light.

Some of these are available for closer inspection on Flickr.

I love this blog. Every entry is worth a good look. I pass it on as often as possible. Most recently to a friend who has a photo exhibit at the WAG right now. You're kind of talented, to say the least, so I thought she should have a peek. Cheers, Cheryl

Do you ever sell your prints?

Certainly open to it, but haven't given it a lot of thought so far.
