I recently ordered a few different macro lenses that screw directly onto my current lenses. They take a bit getting used to, but I think I’ll have fun with them. I love the rusty detail in this nail, my Best Shot Monday for today. What’s the nail for, you ask? Well, as some of you know, we live on the river, close to beach, and have a glutton of sea gulls. Normally, the dogs keep the gulls away from the back deck, but we had about a six-month span between dogs and had to find a way to keep the sea gulls from landing on (and doing their business on) the back deck rails. Thus this nail and its brothers were installed with fishing line running between them. Worked like a charm! Now all the gulls gather on the roof of the boat house. Love rust? Check out these shots.
We had a wonderful, fairly lazy weekend. The girls and I went to the beach for the birthday party of one of my students. He held the gathering in one of the pavilions at Little Talbot Island, on the south end of the island, perfect spot for tide pools during low tide, so the girls had a blast playing around in the tide pools searching for baby hermit crabs. I think that just may become a late afternoon summer ritual. Postcards coming this week! Enjoyed the weekend too much to spend too much time on the computer! :-)
