Lens-Artists Challenge #130: It’s a Small World


I love macros. They are so exotic and different and really only can be seen either with a magnifying glass, a dedicated macro lens, or in my case, a good ol’ regular camera lens with a screw-on macro filter. These filters are tricky to use sometimes as everything must be completely still and as you can see from the below photo, it only magnifies a specific area of the image while blurring the rest.

Since the pandemic began in March 2020, I had not had the opportunity to photograph with my macro lens filters as I was being driven by work and anxiety to the point I had somewhat lost my muse and inspiration to make photographs. I hope to make some in 2021 as it’s looking like spring might be coming early. Therefore, please enjoy some pre-pandemic photos. These photos were from the beautiful spring of pre-pandemic world of 2019.

Creating a Container Garden…


Almost 3 years ago, I moved into my current home. There were raised beds in the backyard and the front yard was incredibly bare except for a Japanese Maple tree which my mom has threatened to cut it down many times since and I have to keep reminding her that this is my house, not hers.

2 years ago, I started creating my garden. I planted 2 cherry trees, 2 plum trees, 3 strawberry plants, and 6 dahlia bulbs hoping to stop my neighbors’ weeds from invading my yard. Continue reading “Creating a Container Garden…”

Sunshine’s Macro Monday


Playing with Lightroom after watching a few videos on YouTube on how to make a subject pop. This is one of my favorite macros and I think with the adjustment, I achieved my goal of making my subject pop.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Three of a Kind


After re-reading the challenge rule, I realized it’s a different “three of a kind” – the kind where I’m photographing an object in three different angles, not the three of the same object three of a kind. Continue reading “A Photo a Week Challenge: Three of a Kind”
