Macro Friday

This week has just been ...blah.  I've been sick, my husband had his wisdom teeth pulled, and it has been cloudy and snowy, which is not good because like most of you, I get my energy from the sun, I need it.

So this morning I went outside to throw out the garbage and mail the rent check and I decided to bring my camera.  It was dark and gloomy out and the snow was melting, which means mud and slush.  I thought maybe if I took some macros it would change my perspective on this crappy day, and it sure did! 

I love these photos I took (warning, little bit of a photo dump).  I warmed up the pics so it looks like the sun might be shining a bit, which makes me happy.  Hey, if you can't have the sun, then you gotta fake it.

Now going to drink some tea (drink of choice as of late), and edit my pics for my project 365 tomorrow.

  11. I love the "sun" in that first one, and your "If you can't make it, fake it!" approach. :D
