Day 341 (6 Dec 2012) Hands

I was tempted to title this post “the hands of time” but I’m still a young 35 year-old kid 🙂  But these are macro shots of my hands, which all things considered, are not as rough as they could be.  Years or working on cars and in the yard must not show as I’ve taken to wearing gloves as often as possible. That said, I’m not sure if I’m fascinated by seeing my hands like this or creeped out! What was your reaction?

Day 130 (9 May 2012) Rain Drops Keep Falling . . .

I think I’ve fallen in love with taking macro shots of water drops 🙂  I would be remiss to not mention the that I’ve drawn some inspiration from H2O by Joanna!  It’s amazing what these small little worlds look like up close.  I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them 🙂

Day 90 (30 March 2012) Diesel Power

Took the macro lens out to shoot non-macro shots, and settled on shooting some shots of ‘my’ tractor.  Hope you enjoy!
