Cristofori's Dream by Corvidae65 Cristofori's Dream by Corvidae65
After seeing the amazing works of :iconevile33: on her pages for the last 4 years I just had to buy a set of extension tubes for my 50 mm f/1.8 lens :excited:

Kathy--your stuff is way better and you've probably forgotten more about macro shooting that I will ever know, but this piece is for you for all your support, friendship and advice. :aww: One day, I hope to shoot half as good as you do my friend :hug:

Thank you Alice :tighthug: You know--I puffed that little blowball in your direction :evillaugh:

(:whisper: when I was a kid--like 1st or 2nd grade--a girl once told me that if you made a wish before poofing a dandelion it would come true. Funny that I still remember not only what she told me but the girl :giggle:)

:evillaugh: but, fortunately, we had just enough Scott's Turfbuilder Plus 2, left from previous years, to put down this year! :excited: So no fear... Dandelions be gone! :iconwhipplz:

:iconlovenodplz: isn't it funny how our brains can so clearly remember such things as that?? :giggle: :tighthug:

Well now, that sir is a darn good start. I've been tempted to try my hand at this, I've had the tube set for three years. I'm just chicken I guess. I like the background and the sort of blurriness of the seeds. (just enough to make it interesting) Nice job.

"Yeah.... but look at all that money you're making", said the idiot dispatcher. Keep on truckin buddy!

My tubes are actually for my 35mm but I bought an adapter so all I have to do is set the camera on manual focus. One of these days I'll try it for sure. Lately it's been all Senior Photos a couple weddings and a whole bunch of my new triplett grand daughters born this June
