This is an extreme closeup of a pale yellow tulip taken with a Canon 100mm macro. I'm probably alone in liking this one.

Kayt is home this weekend and she took some great self-portraits. She's really quite good with her camera. Two of my favorites:

The Adventures of Flat Stanley

When he first arrived, I took Flat Stanley outside to see our spring daffodils. He was very happy to get outside after traveling so far.

I promised him a trip to see the spaceship in Mars on the first nice day. Mars is a small town close to where we live.

Here he is at the spaceship. It looks like it is just the right size for Stanley!
We also looked inside a railroad car.

April Showers....

Our few sunny days are gone and now we're stuck with cold rain. Since I didn't sleep much last night it's just a bit more depressing then usual.
My niece, Lauren, sent me her "Flat Stanley" from Virginia. My husband took him to work to take a picture of him getting his teeth checked. If the weather clears, I'll take him to the nearby town of Mars and get him next to the "spaceship."

Since it's April,I thought I'd post a Spring flower. I took this at the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. If it is dreary outside and you need a shot of Spring, this is the place to go.

First Post

I've jumped into the world of blogging. Never thought I would do this! I thought this would be an interesting way to show some of my photographs.
