I spent yesterday afternoon with this lovely lady who you can visit here.

Not only did this wonderful friend of mine let me play with her macro lens while I was with her she let me bring it home with me so I can try it out properly over the next week. It was a bit windy outside last night for me to take many pictures but I did manage this shot of a teeny baby apple growing on my tree. I could get addicted to this very quickly!

To fill or absorb with water.

I took this shot a few weeks ago while we were at Buxton he was getting all his bottles out ready to fill them with Natural Buxton Spring Water at the free spring.

Rach - love them both. Its a good one of me (I have already showed it to my Mum!!) and your apple is just lovely, you have got the dof just right, but you will have great fun playing with dof to see what you can get - well worth the effort!

Have fun with it!!

Oh, I soooooo want a Macro lens. If and when I ever reach my target weight, I've told my DH that I want a Macro lens as my reward. He was told this way back in March, so he can be prepared. Mind you, I might never reach my target, so he might never have to buy the lens for me! lol

Fab shots of Mima and the apple too!

Oh you clever, clever, girl :-) Really super shots :-)

Right, I am actually in a position now to commit to seeing Mima so we must see if their is a date soon. She is fabulous isn't she? I love her to bits :-)

And, your holidays, about three weeks to go? Maybe four, can't imagine it's any more. Oh, you so deserve this holiday :-)

Sue :-)
