...{...A Hobby of Mine...}...

One of my favorite hobbies is photography.  In fact I once had this idea floating in my head that I would be a professional photographer.  A couple of years ago I even did some sessions for friends, including a wedding.  One word - STRESS!  It's just not for me.  Even though I was doing it for friends and told them I wasn't a professional, I still wasn't happy if the shot didn't turn out how perfectly I'd imaged it.  I work in a marketing department and off and on I would do some product photography which I really enjoyed.  To me, that is still fun, although I've passed that along to another co-worker now.

By now, if you've ever been to my blog, you are probably wondering why I don't have better pics up on here.  It usually comes down to laziness.  I'm always in a hurry at the last minute to take pics of projects and end up w/ some blurry pics.  But it's something I'm working on - improving this blog of mine.  I want to put more time into it rather than the afterthought it's become lately.  So, that being said, I've got several projects I'm going to share this week.

Today's post however is a few pics I took last summer.  It was a lovely sunny day and I took my camera out with my 100mm macro lens to just play around.  These are a few of this pics I ended up with.  I did some post work on these in Photoshop including applying some actions.

Enjoy :-)

    But the rose is probably my favorite it is so pretty it looks artificial!
