Sinatra’s been in my head since I took this shot yesterday.
From the GrayDays&Coffee Dictionary:
Shaggle: A gaggle of shadows
I was walking down the stairs, and there he was, right outside my front door in my faded salvia bed. I raced (ok…lumbered) back up the stairs and grabbed my camera. It isn’t the best quality shot, but it represents a quality moment in my day today.
Mantises are such interesting insects. I wish I could have captured how this one was rotating his head as if he was sizing me up in order to form his strategy.
After owning a macro for several months, I can say 1. I’m more addicted than ever. (the name “crack-ro” in previous posts still holds) and 2. It’s as difficult as ever to keep the right focus point and also to find the right aperture. So, I’ve just chosen to take the volume approach…shooting ridiculous amounts of photos and hoping I’ll end up with one that’s decent.
Desley Jane is corrupting me by pressuring me to submit an ADDITIONAL PHOTO *GASP* to the Daily Prompt folks. So I just tagged this one. If I end up in WordPress Jail, somebody send me my camera, my macro lens, my big mama zoom lens, some Starbucks coffee, and Haribo gummy bears. I’ll be good for at least a few hours.
I haven’t done one of the Daily Post topics in a long time. But, I was loving the submissions I saw on the reader, so I decided to toss a photo into the pile.
