For the first time in ages I actually felt like taking some photos…the Mother’s Day flowers from Edward and Michelle have opened to perfection and I just had to take some pictures.
I used our Nikon D300 and my Lensbaby2, its quite a tricky little lens to use but I love the arty focus it produces. There is a new one out now, the Lensbaby3, but I will stick with the one I’ve got. I quite like using the Lensbaby Macro Kit as well, it gets in really close and the focus gets a bit easier I find,
I had been wanting to meet Jayne for ages. We had been conversing a bit on Ravelry and the occasional blog post but the story doesn’t stop there. Just before Christmas, I was at our Photography Club’s Christmas do and I noticed someone sort of looking my way. Amazingly, Jayne’s husband attended the same club and as we were eating our meal, Jayne heard me talking about knitting to someone on our table and her ears pricked up but she wasn’t sure if it really was the Marianne she knew off the Internet so she said nothing but sent me an online message a few days later and the rest is history! Isn’t life amazing at times?
