the Birth of a NEW MadSnapper??

 As my smiling husband watched me with my camera in hand......
OOPS! wrong setting
 I aimed it up at the new growth on the pine tree and said
"I am turning over a new leaf and am going to take BETTER photos instead of MORE"
Smiley Bob's comeback..
"Well you have to, you can't possibly take MORE!"     ( he is sooo not funny)
 The first one was two dark, so I FIDDLED with the whatever settings and I LOVE it.  If you like Details click on photo to enlarge and if you don't then don't. You have my permission to miss all these lovely close up details of this tiny 2 inch new growth
 Oh LOOK, there is the left over hibiscus root
 and a pine cone in the bushes......
 Soooooo! The no longer Madly Snapping MadSnapper whose intentions are to take Better Not More, decided to pull a chair from the deck and place it behind the bushes..........to  be continued

No longer Mad, eh? Methinks I'm smiling with Bob...

Ann said...

well I do believe that I would have taken your husbands comment about not being able to take more as a personal challenge....lol
Of course in your efforts to take better pictures (which by the way, these are great) you just might have to keep madly snapping away :)

Great shots. As for taking better,not more pictures,I don't know about that. Sometimes we need to take more to get to the better,at least I do.

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

-chuckle- She has morphed into a NEW kinda' Mad Snapper!!!! Whoooo-hoooooooooo... -giggles-

What closeups! Wow, wow, wow.

But my (unrequested) advice... If you want us to really pay attention to your exquisite new photography skills... DON'T put a pic of your handsome hubby, right at the top of your post!!!!!!

Come on! How are we supposed to drag our eyes back down to......... PLANTS?!? >,-)

You "fiddled with the whatever settings"? Would you consider teaching an on-line photography class?????
You speak my kind of camera language.

Best,
Bonnie

Rose said...

Nice--whatever you done to it worked.

RoeH said...

Rose said...

Oh, I agree with Ann...just show your hubby just how many more you can take!

LC said...

Yes to detail!

SweetMarie said...

Deb said...

sometimes less is more..but to me the more photos the better THH...great shots...

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I need to take more photos. I think I still have the mindset that I am shooting with film and will have to pay for my photos so I still limit myself!
Keep snapping, Sandra, these are great shots! Love the pine cone.

Ginny said...

These are really, really good!! So that is a new pine cone forming? I love the shadow of the Hibiscus root. The first picture is not NEAR as good as the rest. And tell Bob he is TOO funny!!! Can't wait to hear what you did with that chair, I hope it was not STANDING on it to reach a photo opp!!!

Chatty Crone said...

I am with Dawn - you not mad? That would be so sad. You would then be a cad! I hope this is just a fad. I'm glad I am not your dad! Eeee GAD! I'm mad! sandie

Susannah said...

Eva Ason said...

Beijos no coração.

How about both? Keep trying to improve and continue with the mad snapping?! haha
That's what I doooooo... ( I know, I shouldn't - but why not???)!

Debra Dickinson said...

Are you sure you didn't turn over a new "needle"? LOL. Wow on the pix - don't know how you can get better. The chair... hmmmmm.... interesting. :)

Well, Bob needs to know that it's impossible to take too many photos. :))

Reena Walkling said...

What would we do without these husbands and their wise cracks!

Angela said...

At least you know how to use your cameras settings! I just take a bunch of pictures and hope I get a good one! lol I think all your pictures are always so clear that it looks like I can reach in and touch it!

George said...

I just want to know when Bob will be let out of the doghouse. I've resolved, several times, to take better pictures, but I still seem to end up with more!

SquirrelQueen said...

Bob sounds like my hubby. You took how many photos this afternoon? Guys don't understand.

Great macro shots.

Janie said...

I am glad to see you are still blogging. I thought my negitive attitude rubbed off on you. Not the case, good for you. Hey your hubby can be a subject for ya. However I know you can find things to photo right in front of your chair. Nice posts, I just caught up.
