Macro Manual 3

 Lessons from my dollar store glass

We hear the question of the empty glass often and the standard answer is To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty



If the glass was full to the top and then you drank half of it it's half empty. If the glass was empty and then only filled half way it's half full. Holly

Why don't cats play poker in the jungle? Too many cheetahs
Did you hear about the cat who drank 5 bowls of water? He set a new lap

My Mirror Me...... LOL    as you can see I am NOT Macro Material

I love how you caught the colours and reflections in the glass objects.

The glass is pretty but you know we love the cat. The second shot with all the colors is gorgeous.

Gotta think about the half full, half empty for a bit.

Love these shots. Glassware is a perfect subject to practice on.

I like the reflections! Great photo session is this with that extra lens?

I like your mirror shot!! they are fun to created when no one is around to take our picture.

I love that picture of you! Yes you ARE macro material! I always wanted big pretty eyes like that. The only thing better would have been color. The glass has a cool reflection in the stem, that's the best part. And the rainbow in the cat. When I got up from a table last night, I pushed on the tabletop to rise up. Not realizing it was a pedestal table! The whole thing tilted, my new camera sliding off and onto the hard tile floor. Made a dreadful crack and the lens cap flew off. Thinking fast, Anne grabbed her ice-cream and saved it from the same fate. Unbelievably, it seems fine!!!

The glass is so pretty and so are your eyes! It's so great how you're enjoying your new toy and able to share it with us.

Angela said...

Great pictures! When I first seen the picture of the glass all I could think of was look at how sparkly clean it is! lol

S. Etole said...

Looks like you are having all kinds of fun with that new camera. Is it a T2i? Love that last shot!

Delightful Sandra. I love how you captured the reflections in the glass. Great explanation of half full and half empty.
A macro of me would be just too scary. All my wrinkles would be just too close for comfort.

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

love those but particularly the last one!

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...
