The world is just awesome...up close!
I had a brief morning walk earlier today. It's been my sort-of habit to go out of the house on Monday mornings (usually 5:00am) and take photos of flowers, plants, etc. Instead of jogging I do this to clear my head and be inspired by nature (though I think I ought to jog/run more really!). I've observed I'm gearing towards macro photography, I want to get closer to subjects as much as possible. My G11 makes me pretty happy with its macro and zoom capabilities but I want more details! Ah, I watch too much NatGeo and Discovery.
Probably I also ought to befriend Ed's DSLR. Bulky cameras such as DSLRs aren't my thing but if they can satisfy my I-want-a-detailed-shot-of-an-ant's-head needs, then I'll happily pick one up and shoot.
I'm thinking of running a series here, but I'll still have to think of how to properly put it up and run/maintain it. I can be very lazy and my 'photographic eye' isn't impressive but I'm determined to learn and at least be good at this craft.
