100th Post!

Matt's Nanta had a beautiful hydrangea bush growing her front yard and I asked if she would part with a few of the blooms. Happily, she obliged and I have a huge beautiful bouquet now sitting in my living room. (And I have not killed it! I even changed the water! Maybe there is hope for me.) It makes me happy every time I walk past it.

Of course, since I love zooming in on things, the flowers have provided a fun fodder for playing with the dials on my camera.

Want Your Wedding Done in Macro (and only in macro)?
I'd be your gal.

AND I am even learning my photo editing software - although I haven't gotten past the "fun effects" tools. My grandma is one talented lady with the oil paints - I wonder how she'd feel about my lazy-man's oil painting setting?

I love your photog! You are becoming quite the artist. Hydrangeas are a fave as well :)

Be careful with Hydrangeas around Buddy! I know this comment is late...but I recently inherited some leftover hydrangea arrangements from a bridal shower, and low and behold Kitty liked them, tried to eat them, I Googled. Poisonous to dogs & cats!
