I’m still at Lola’s house. Everywhere I look there is something interesting to photograph. I don’t really visit her enough, I see… and certainly have never spent this much time looking around her porch. In fact, for every cactus there are as many mementos and I could spend another couple hours just taking pics of those. Now that I think about it, I may have to go back to take a photo of her dear-departed-husband’s favorite-desert-walking-sneakers filled now with cactii.
Anyway, here are some of the photos that I took:
The flowers are gone but the red pods (?) are still fantastic looking.
ISO 80 f/2.8 1/200 Levels adjusted
ISO 80 f/2.8 1/40 Levels adjusted to make the green pop a bit.
Maybe could have used the above photo for “circles.”
ISO 80 f/2.8 1/200 Love the light on this one.
The above cactus is showing off its shiny new growth. Isn’t that neat?
ISO 80 f/2.8 1/200
This last photo is a bit weird. It is called a “fish hook” cactus because of the –duh — the fish hook shaped prickers… as if the straight ones weren’t enough! I’m thinking I went too far on the macro on this one. I debated before posting it.
Do you want to know the real irony? I wasn’t going to do this assignment until later in the day or more likely I’d begin it tomorrow. The UPS truck was due to arrive within then next couple of hours — to bring me my new camera!
See my next posting to learn more about that COOL purchase!
