A SUMMER DAY AT OUR COUNTRY COVE

I have always wanted an out door cloths drier and now I have one. I have always loved the fresh air smell of laundry . Papa dug the hole for it the other day and cemented the pole in. This drier can either swing freely with the wind for faster drying or you can set it not to swing !

                                 Right now I use the chair to put my basket on !

MIGGY & I

Miggy and I were playing in the yard and sat to have a rest. Miggy is the type of dog that if she wants to be hugged she leans right on you with her full weight, so as I sat there with her she literally sat on me and leaned so hard she nearly pushed me over. Before I knew it Papa had snapped some photos !

                                  Until next time, hope you all have a great day !

MY FIRST ATTEMPT WITH MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY

 

I mentioned a few months ago in a post that I got a new Nikon Nikkor 60 mm Macro lens thanks to Papa  lol .Well yesterday was the first attempt of using it. I like photographing flowers, bugs and butterfly's up close and this lens is amazing for that. I do a lot of self taught trial and error. My header photo is one of  my Macro photos from yesterday ! All these photos are just as is  what my eye and the camera sees, no touch ups as I don't do any of that !
