I love experimenting with depth of field...the possibilities are endless.

At the risk of sounding like a salesman...

Recently, I heard about (and subsequently ordered) a fabulous product.
You know those lovely multi-hundred dollar speedlites that yield fabulous results, particularly when bouncing off a wall or ceiling?
You know that pop-up flash on you camera that can do no such thing?
The Lightscoop.
It reflects your pop-up flash onto a wall or ceiling at the perfect angle.
It really works.
It's only thirty bucks!

Just an Interesting Little Tidbit, I think.

Just had a woodpecker at the hummingbird feeder--I googled and found it was more common than I thought, but it was a first here.
There are 100% crops...I need a telephoto lens!

A Life Cycle--In Reverse

I love how these lovely white flowers...
...unfurl delicately...
...from tiny pink buds.

Homemade Pillow Pet!

Lizzy falls for every infomercial. She's convinced that you can have the abs you want for just 3 minutes a day.
She's also convinced that she needs a Pillow Pet--a cow. Because she has so many stuffed cats, and they need milk.
I'm convinced it'd be more fun (and cheaper) to make.
It was.

 I've secretly named her Wendy, but I'll let Lizzy pick out her own name. ;)
