    Wotcha,

    Sorry not been about much . Life as always has got in the way and rankly I am astonished that it's July already! Seems like it wasn't that long ago we had snow.

    Becoming increasingly obsessed with photography so thought I'd share a few snaps.

    We are all well and the boys are growing at an alarming rate - absolutely no hope of a Florida trip at any point I'm afraid :(


    My obsession with the macro stuff is growing - especially as I am learning so much about all thge beasties that visit the garden, genuinely had no idea.

    O ring is a cheap plastic ( very cheap - think chocolate box quality plastic) 30 diffuser that nestles around your falsggun and reflects the light in a circle around the lens to give a cheap alternative to a proper macro ring flash.

    Well it sort of works - I have anxieties that it wont hold out for long, and even greater anxieties that it will amke me want the real thing.


    A few from the weekend -looks better n the original and large good eye detail

    The eyes and head on this one were really clear on the original - unfortunately shrinking has lost a lot of detail

    And just who are you?

    Have we met? Should we move this thread over to the "Intros and Welcomes" section?

    Seriously... great pictures mate! And greater still to see you back here. Wondered where you'd gotten off to.

    Tom (... sit... stay...)
