I was looking at the cutting board today after I cut a tomato for lunch. The light was hitting the pulp and seeds left on the board and I thought it was beautiful with just the touch of green from a cilantro leaf. The thought ran through my mind that I should photograph it but just as I was putting that out of my mind because it was so tiny that I couldn't make a photograph of it that would show a close-up the translucent gelatinous pulp when CLICK! Yes, yes I could. Well maybe I could. I have a new close-up filter that I recently bought but had not tried. I raced upstairs and put it on the camera. That was the beginning of Playtime. Yes, I do like to explore so you are probably going to see some more images with that piece of equipment.

    1. I love figs. The shape and color are glorious. And they are quite delicious too.

  2. You just go right ahead and experiment. We'll all enjoy the results.

  4. Once again, you have encouraged me to get out there and start experimenting with my camera. I was rather disappointed with the results from my Europe trip. The were so -- touristy.

    1. I know that feeling, Steve. It is hard to get past being the Tourist. On FB a friend suggested taking a look at Miksang Contemplative Photography, www.miksand.com
      You might get some inspiration from the site. I know I did.
