Macro Monday and Cherry Blossoms

I am lucky that my cherry tree decided to hold off blooming until after all that nastiness we got in the middle of the month. Now I can enjoy some beautiful cherry blossoms for this Macro Monday. I used my Helios and did some freelensing. We were lucky to have one day this weekend with amazing weather. Bring on spring!

And now head over to the talented Iris Nelson to see her Macro Monday shots. 🙂

Macro Monday and First Day of Spring?

Yesterday morning we got yet another dusting of snow, just before the first day of spring. But before it all melted off the trees, I grabbed my macro and captured some shots as the sun was just rising.

And now head over to the super talented Tiffany Kelly to see her macro shots on the first day of spring. 😀

Macro Monday and Magnolia Almost

Happy Macro Monday. It was a brutally cold weekend around here just to prep ourselves for the Nor’easter headed this way. But before we are buried under a foot or more of snow (I’m still holding on to the fact that it could be just a rumor) I went outside to take a few photos of the almost blooming magnolia with my new Lensbaby Trio set to twist on my Fuji to practice and see if it would do a little freelensing. I hope the flowers survive the deep freeze this week and still blossom.

I am pretty happy with how this one turned out. It was pretty hard to freelens but that could just mean I need more practice on a nicer day.

I also shot a few with my canon macro lens too. Here is my fave:

And now head over to the amazing Tiffany Kelly and see what she has for us on this Monday.

Macro Monday And Blossoms

The Plum tree has decided to blossom early. Luckily it was only a few of the blossoms that got a little overzealous becasue we had a cold snap after the lovely February weather we were having and now they are all wilted. But likely there are more on their way to bloom. Lets hope the weather starts to turn a corner into spring. 🙂

February Best 9

Here are my favorite 9 photos of last month for both kids and non-humans. I also took part in a movie project last month where I shoot 1 second videos each day of the month. Well I increased it to 1.5 seconds instead and added in a few extra. So super fun and the kids really loved it too. We plan to try a new one each month this year.
