Donogh and Mikes By Lúnasa from The Merry Sisters Of Fate
Well, I’ve been crazy busy. Plus, the weather’s been bad, the lighting’s been bad and my eye is no better than it was six weeks ago. The husband is sick, I think I’ve caught his crud, but the critters are all good and the barn finally got started this morning!
I’ve been working hard in the garden, but when the fog started to burn off this morning I decided to put my tools down and grab my camera. Macro is a good fit for someone with bad eyesight because I can set my camera on live view and use the tripod and remote. There were a couple of great webs that I tried to shoot, but there was an almost imperceptible breath of air that foiled my attempts. Even some of the flower shots were tricky because it doesn’t take much of an air current to make the heavy blossoms sway. Especially when they’re wet from an overnight drizzle. Still, that makes for some super shooting conditions, so I had to try.
I’m pretty stoked about the barn. I’ve been picturing this barn mentally for about ten years or more and I can’t believe it’s actually going to be a reality. It’s like having a long-term dream come true!
