Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17th, 2010 · 8 Comments

A little bit of green, shot from the hip, actually shot from the foot.  The ground is soaking wet from snow melt and all the rain we’ve had so I wasn’t going to get down on my belly!  As you can see, the camera had a little problem with focus!  I like it anyway.  Seeing some green at this time of year is welcome whether it’s in focus or not!

The next one is in my kitchen.  I think I’m starting to understand why I have read that you must use a tripod when you shoot macro.  I didn’t use one.

And the last, again shot from the foot!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, whether you’re in focus today or not!

    I love the out-of-focus-ness. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    You know I never use a tripod either — sometimes it’s hit and miss. My macro is my favorite lens.

    Love it! I am *not* in focus today – I forgot to wear green! I had to print out a shamrock on office paper, cut it out, and tape it to my shirt. In my department, you get pinched if you’re not wearing green. And I can tell you – it hurts! :)

    Gayle this is beautiful! You are really blossoming as a photographer. That first photo would make a cool texture.
