I’ve been grooving on my macro lens recently. I’ve wanted one for years and now that I have it, I am feeling the joy. For example, this lichen in Warsaw Caves park. Looks like shag carpet or a furry coat.
The macro lens can make just about anything look like an abstract. The inside of this kettle in Warsaw Caves shows enough detail to be identifiable…
… but in these photos, it looks like a landscape, or just colour and texture.
I find it interesting that after years of shooting vast landscapes I find myself going to the other extreme. How close can I get?
Pretty darn close, apparently.
And when the subject is as lovely as these piglets, it’s hard not to get right in there and say hello.
It’s been a busy few weeks and I’ve missed a couple of posts. Read more “Spring Cows and Buddha Dude”
Another trip to the farm. It was a bright sunny day when I got there. Everyone was in a chipper mood. Read more “Here’s Lookin’ at You”
Went back out to check in on the wee sheepsies.

Last week I posted some photos of the sheep at the family farm I was house sitting and mentioned the ewes were close to having their lambs. Read more “Sheep Make More Sheep”
The trees are gorgeous and as I drove out yesterday, the rain clouds split open to let in the sun. Read more “Fall Power”
More country drives.
And the fall colours are really coming out. Read more “Fall Cow Field 2”
I went to visit a friend yesterday and took a walk with her in her fields.
That’s Mabel, the dog, running ahead in the distance. Read more “Farm Dogs and Cows”
Went for a drive this week. It’s been so dry recently and I and my garden have been waiting for rain.
This day, the clouds were hanging, but hadn’t opened up yet. Read more “Rain Clouds and Fields”
It’s certainly been a while since I’ve posted.
Needless to say, there’s been a lot going on that has kept me from my regular photo habit.
I’ve still got a lot on my plate, but things are getting done and time is passing.
Spring will arrive soon. And after that, summer. It seems even then I will be posting only occasionally.
I hope when the fall comes ’round again, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled photo posts.
In the mean time, I’ll keep sending out photos as best I can.
