After owning my Samsung Digimax V700 for two years, I finally pulled out the manual to go over all the special functions. Yes, I know that's a long time, but the camera is so easy to use that I usually just set it to "automatic" and click away. It takes fabulous photos but I think it's time to try something new, don't you?
So I studied up on macros and attempted to shoot some. My daughter is a whiz at all things technological so since she was here for dinner, she took some as well. She showed me little things to do and watch for. We were all over the back yard and in the garden, including down on our hands and knees in the dirt and on the grass. Here are some samples of some of the shots we got
Jaclyn took the photos of the mosquito, the white flower with yellow coming out of the top, and the center of the clematis. I did the leaves, the pinecone, and the daisy. So...what do you think? Any hope for us?
Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge as they look much more magnificent (lol) that way. And tell me if you have a favourite.

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
