Brenda's Photo Challenge ~ Using Macro~


Hi Guys! I decided to join in on Brenda's Photo Challenge at the last minute(like this morning). It's time to join the land of the living again or as I like to say put on my big girl panties and get on with life and you all have been a big part of my life and I am sorry if I have not been there for you all lately. So here's my photos for the challenge, I really would like to get more into macro photography, I think it is so cool. These are old photos but I especially love the water drop one because you can see the reflection in the water drops. Not sure if these are true macro shots but they are as close as I can come.
Hope you all have a great weekend. It's a steamy one here in Ohio! I will be around to check out everyone's photos but first it's off to shop(retail therapy) today. Have a good one!

They're wonderful Miz Joan. I especially love the water drops!!

Wonderful photos Joan! I also loved seeing the photos of the girls out in the puddles. This week has flown by and my computer time has been limited, so it's been fun catching up with everyone.

Happy weekend sweet friend!
Hugs!

Wow, I love both of your photos! The water droplets are amazing. I have some similar cannas and they can look so exotic to be such a common flower. Great job!

Jeanne said...

Beautiful Joan, as always. Love the water droplets especially. So glad you decided to join in this week!
