flame and smoke

As I suspected, the candles are much more fun with my macro lens on.

December 1

This little gingerbread house was handmade by a friend years ago. To give you an idea of scale, the candy canes are 2 strands of thread twisted together.

lights of the season

This shot would have been better with my macro lens, but that is not what was on my camera. It still turned out pretty well.

I've been neglecting my camera too long, and kind of forgot that this shot would have benefited from a greater depth of filed.

the birdfeeder

I sat outside by this birdfeeder for a spell waiting for the hummingbirds to grace me with their presence in the nearby flowers. Turns out, it was not such a great plan, but it was fun to watch the other birds.

I was surprised the first time this guy walked up to the birdfeeder. I did have my camera handy though.
