Ready for Spring

Pink Flower

I took this photo with my Canon 5D Mark III and 100mm Macro lens. It is enhanced a bit with Nik Software. The more photos I take of flowers, I realize that I’m ready for Spring. First day of Spring is March 20, which can’t come too soon for me. If you click on it, you can see a larger version.

New Vibrams Bikila ls

by Sandy on December 22, 2012

I’ve been admiring the Vibram FiveFinger shoes for a while now, but wasn’t sure if they would be comfortable or not. I finally decided to try them. I selected the Bikila ls version since they have the quick-lace system that allows runners with a wider foot or higher instep to comfortably wear them. I’ve worn them for the past several days, and am amazed at how easily I’ve adapted to them. I also bought the Injnji toe socks that work perfectly with them. They are a bit difficult to get on at first, but after several times, it gets easier.

I love mums. There is such a huge variety. This is a macro photo of a white and green mum. I took it with my Canon 100 f/2.8 L IS macro lens and Canon 5D Mark III on a tripod. I love this lens and use it more than any other lens that I have.

I took this picture today from a bunch of daisies that I bought at Trader Joe’s. I used a macro lens and edited it slightly with Nik Color Efex Pro 4. You can see a larger version on my Flicker page.

Martinez Regional Park

by Sandy September 1, 2012 Photography

Here’s another photo taken at the Martinez Regional Park today. It was an uncommonly nice day with very little wind. If you look close, it looks like the birds are walking on water, but I think it’s probably a sand bar.

A Rose by any other name….

by Sandy August 26, 2012 Photography

The photo of this rose was taken with my Canon macro lens, which is becoming my favorite lens. After all, you can always find interesting things for which to photograph anywhere. You don’t have to travel to exotic places. All you have to do is look around…and down. For another interesting site, I suggest Tiny […]
