The learning curve here….dddduuuuhhhh don’t ever take a photo with this

lens without dusting first!!! Pretend it’s fairy dust…

we have a new interstate coming through our area and dust is thick…

the construction is in two areas within a mile or so of our

house and we have had very little rain this year.

I fought the dust and the dust won!!!

The cool weather has given my outside ferns a new lease on life but tonight it is

supposed to be in the twenties so I brought them in.

I thought I would prolong their lives for a little while…

I won’t keep them for long since they tend to crowd me too much.

I always hate to see them die every winter.

Blooms on my Christmas Cactus…maybe it’s a Thanksgiving Cactus???

Christmas/Thanksgiving Cactus, summer ferns and Halloween Pumpkins…

Just call it multi season decorating…

  1. What lens did you get, Becky? We have Canon Rebel's --and we both have 18-55mm lenses, 55-200mm lens(G's), 75-300mm lens (mine), and a macro lens (G).. We use them all and love them!!!!

    My Christmas Cactus bloomed early last year (October I think) --but shows no sign of blooming at all this year.... Shucks!!!!!

    I tried to keep a fern alive one year during the winter... Didn't work!!!!

    Great pictures.... Sorry about all of your dust.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  2. Wow! I like your new lens, too. My goodness, but those close ups are clear and love the blurred backgrounds. Great job....have so much fun! My FAVS are Macro and CloseUp shots and then to the computer for even more fine tuning. I guess you could tell that from some of the shots I do on CollectInTexas Gal!!!

  10. Congratulations on your new lens. I know you'll have fun learning to use it, and we'll enjoy seeing all the marvelous pictures you get.
    My philosophy is that when you get a new lens, dust (or anything else) doesn't matter.

  13. Wow, great photos! I love the subjects you were capturing, just stunning. I have some blooming orchids & my Thanksgiving/Christmas cactus has teeny little buds. Plants are really like children. They are a lot of work, but we are always so proud of them. Have fun with the new lense.
