Exciting Day!!

I have a new toy to share!
For my birthday my husband told me to go buy the lens I had been wanting!
Today, I bought a new 100mm macro lens!!
I am so excited!!
I thought I'd share a few of my first photos!

I had my camera with me and they let me try the lens before I bought it.
This first shot is of a small label on a camera strap.

This next shot is of a small flower on the side of a camera case.

When I got home I couldn't wait until I could try it out. I didn't mess with the tripod and I was so excited I was shaking,  but, I think these came out pretty good. This is the center of a petunia. Pretty cool looking inside!


The next two are of my hosta flowers!  I never thought they were pretty until I started getting close-up shots!

I shot anything I could find like this fungus on the side of a small piece of bark! This one is my favorite!

I can see myself loving this lens!!

  7. Wow! I can't wait to see what you will discover with this lens! It will certainly feed your macro addiction. (And what a sweet husband)

  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! What a great gift for you to have, lots of fun already isn't it!! What awesome photos you got already, love the flowers and the fungus one is a great one also. How lucky for us to enjoy your new toy also, keep sharing all the fun photos you will take with it.

    What a pretty change to your blog, these colors are gorgeous. The background is what I'm trying to paint/draw right now, still need to practice but hoping to create something with it to show next week.
    Thanks for visiting my blog, have a good weekend!

  9. Congratulations! It's definitely an addiction for me!
