The Best Of My Best. Enjoy!

It must be spring. Really. I keep thinking sugary-sweet, smarmy, warm fuzzy thoughts.

(I admired the day today...)

I've spent so long hating the season, I have forgotten how to admire it!

It started a couple days ago when I noticed the tiny buds on the crab apple trees out front of my house. I was dumbstruck like Mother Nature hung a SIGNIFICANT right upper-cut as a seasonal wake up! :matrixfight: O.K. so, it's not such a big deal--seasons come and seasons go but I'm usually more aware of spring creeping up than I have been this year.

(there is no curse, no more evil thought and no more sin like that which winter brings to me...:furious:)

I've been appreciating some early signs of spring from some closely watched (:evileyes:) deviants lately, too but ol' M.N. still sucker-punched me.

(It's nothing more than I deserved, really...I feasted upon fields of poppies...)

Not a lot new to report--the basement remodel continues. That might be why spring crept up so casually. I've spent my days in that nasty basement and I will spare you the details of the horrors I've encountered there but at least I finally found out the bird that was trapped in my chimney flue several years ago and flew downstairs and disappeared like it flew into the Bermuda Triangle. I found its petrified skeleton under my desk

I thought (very briefly) about photographing the birds remains in some darkly artistic way, but that's really not my style so I chucked in the trash and kept ripping carpet out hoping all the while that Amelia Earhart's skeleton wouldn't pop out from under a pile of tattoo magazines in the corner.

(You got some 'splainin' to do, Bucko!)

Well, that's about it. I've tried mightily to not think about going back to work and that new white horror I'm supposed to drive :facepalm: I hope you're all having a great beginning to spring (or fall for those in the southern hemisphere) . Check out the features and give 'em some love!

(...and keep an eye out for those skeletons)

May I ask what tripod(s) you use?  I am looking to buy one and am looking for recommendations.
Corvidae65 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015
Sure!  I have a Manfrotto 190 more aluminum tripod with a Manfrotto pan head.  It has a unique tilting center column which allows for shooting straight down or straight up.  It's fairly light weight despite being aluminum.  I bought it online at B & H Photo for I think $200 or so.  I believe Manfrotto has updated that particular tripod line with some new features since I bought mine.
Eliasome Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015   Photographer
Thanks so much for your reply!! :) (Smile)   That tilting center column sounds really neat!
Corvidae65 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015
You're welcome :)

The tilting center column comes in handy if you like to shoot flowers.  The bad thing is that it only locks at a right angle and can't be set at different angles.  The upgrade to this model may do that but I don't know for sure.
