Fun New Stuff

I recently sold some stuff from my Etsy store and on ebay.

I decided to take the money and run.  (Sorry, couldn't resist the phrase!)

No really, I decided to buy a few goodies for my camera.

The fist thing that arrived in yesterday's mail was a 4, 6 and 8 star filter set.

Of course I had to try one of them out during last nights walk with LizzieBelle so I grabbed the 6 star filter and off we went to the slough.

I definitely need to practice with them but I think they'll add some fun touches to some of my photos!

I really enjoy macro photography and after seeing images from two other bloggers, Louisiana Belle and Pieces of Contentment, that have used the Raynox DCR-250 2.5x Super Macro Lens I decided to check it out for myself.  So, I ordered that along with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens. and they should be arriving today, woot!

I can't wait until they arrive and I can start 'playing' with them!

Happy Friday y'all!  I hope you have a great weekend!

I'm off to do some gardening therapy at a friends.  Flowers not vegetables (in case you read yesterday's post!) and then heading to the hospital for a visit with Mom!

Till next time,

Oh that's great ! , you will have lots of fun with them . Cant wait to see your photos you take using them . Papa and I also have a set of filters as well for our Nikon's ! I haven't used them as of yet but Papa has and they are cool ! Your photo here is awesome . I myself am getting used to the program Light room so lots of exploring and fun there for me . It's funny I can run a digital camera no probs but as for a computer I am a bit illiterate lol. Have fun with your new filters and have a great day !

The star filter is so cool! I need to brush up on my skills.. and also read up on the new fun accessories out there. I'll just come here for the heads ups, k? ;) My favorite lens is the 50mm. love, love, love it! Have fun with your new toys (I'm jealous, in a good way!). Hope your mom is okay! -Tammy

Thanks for the shout out!! I hope you get as much enjoyment out of Super Ray that I have. Those star filters are awesome! Adds such an interesting element to the shot. Yay for new toys! I just purchased a Tamron 10-22mm to start a side business of doing realtor photos. I'm so excited!
