  • I like them all, Rick.  The second one is great.  The Noni fruit looks like a strawberry that took LSD.  Great post;  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Really a beautiful set, WhyNot, though that first one looks a bit sinister.  I like your PP.  Looking at U.S. weather forecast last night, I'd rather be here than there.  It predicts that you ...
  • Replied in From our gardens
    I'm not getting around much, at present, but I'm lucky to have these gardens just outside my door. All of these from yesterday. All with E5, Sigma 18-50 f 2.8 macro. Pretty little flowers.  They've ...
  • Thanks, Rick.  I should have added flash to that pic to get f 11 as the circle of confusion is not quite deep enough at f 8, though it looks good enough as it is.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, WhyNot.  I take liberties with color where I can, flowers, landscapes, skies.  I've done too  much commercial work, which must be faithful to the original, or somebody gets sued.  Fine art ...
  • Thanks, Andrew.  I'm sorry you're laid up.  If I cough or sneeze, I get a gut pain which can knock me down.  This end of the ride is definitely fraught with peril.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr4 ...
  • Steve;  My Scots progenitors passed down a capacity for potables to me which is even able to inspire awe in the Irish.  My Basque progenitors passed along a fondness for ewes.  This flash coming ...
  • Hi, Steve. Still not getting out much. So, I'm processing some I neglected over the last six weeks. Rich Had 50 mph winds and nearly two inches of rain just yesterday. I had to get out and see if ...
  • Replied in Slim Pickins
    Andrew, I have to get a bit more mobile before I'll have any good, interesting pix for this thread.  Or, since I still have flowers here at home, I could just post flower pix everywhere I post. ...
  • Thanks, Collin.  Lots of shrooms around here.  Some are pretty, some are pretty ugly, some will get you high and some will kill you.  I get mine at the grocery store. It took a few minutes to ...
  • Replied in Not prickly....
    Very soft and easily damaged, Steve.  Right on the ground and about an inch across.  105 mm macro meant I didn't have to lower my corpse down to the ground.  The second one is not a weed, it's ...
  • Thanks, Lou.  That first flower is only about 2.5 centimeters across, and right on the ground.  A long macro comes in handy.  The fungus was about to be destroyed by the gardener, I just got it in ...
  • Yes, I certainly did notice the quake, Steve.  I'm on the ground floor of a five story building.  I well remember the 1994 Northridge quake in The San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.  One ...
  • A really great set, KB.  That last one will be in bloom for a long time.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in Stamens...
    I like them both, Lou.  But that second one is really something.  Very nice work, indeed!  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, WhyNot.  It does help to have a longer macro when bending at the waist is painful.  As I said before, it's a weird little lens, but it delivers.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in Camellia
    Beautiful blossom, and nicely photographed, WhyNot.  It has a bit of the 3D look which is so hard to get in flat pix.  I like it; Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, Zin.  I appreciate your comment. Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, Andrew.  Yes, gut is better, strength and stamina have a long way to go to recover, but I'm a little better each day.  That's progress, geriatric mode.  Every time I get depressed about ...
  • I won't forget Bill, John.  I still miss his posts.  Thanks for helping us remember his birthday.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
