Just only to say “hello again”…

… there are some minutes left to make a little entry about “Spring and Fall” before I go to work

(inspired by “Photo-Quest #102” – thx Maureen).

Yesterday I relished a wonderful afternoon that started with some guitar lesson support I gave to my niece who visited my mom yesterday. She asked me for some basic fingerpicking styles (OMG – not my core competence).  While she was practising – following my advises – I was in my mom’s garden to shoot some cherry tree leafs (#1)… Then I picked up the car to look for some maple trees (some of the few trees  here that show some really wonderful colors here when fall comes and you don’t find them in such quantities as f. eks. in Canada or in the northern parts of the USA). OK I found a few of them, had some fun and when I came home to edit, convert and store the shots on my hard drive I stumbled upon one of the first 100 shots (while waiting instead of ironing – this job really sucks!) I made with my Nikon SLR – a blossom of the same cherry tree (#2)…

Here they are…

#1 Spring

# 2   Fall

    • I migrated from Vox too where I was a member of this wonderful group. The first entry I made on Photo Quest #58 after following the content for a time and being an active part of the group makes me a lot of fun – and I’m learning a lot about photography and editing with the group – and particularly the new networks I got to know via the group. BTW I should add them to my blogroll, where you can find some of our common friends I suppose 😉
      … HA one more – as I remember I posted #1 for the Quest “Show me some Bokeh”. From that moment I knew what a photogrpher means when he talks about Bokeh.

  2. I can practically smell that flower. And the leaves are so artistic – you’re so good with the macro mode.

    • #1 is made with my kit lens (18-105mm) and #2 with my 70-300mm lens of a well known japanese manufacturer whose name begins and ends with an “N”… What I wanna say is these two lenses have no macro mode, though it seems like that – for our eyes.

  4. Another great job. Don’t you love it when you stubble upon an image that you took some time ago and it still looks good?
