A day downtown

Went downtown Chicago and took some photos. Here are a few:

Visited Navy Pier and had lunch. Had fun with the camera through a wine glass. Kayley was sitting on the other end of the table. Then it was the Shedd Aquarium the next day for more fun. I ❤ all things sea, so I was in heaven! My favorite was the Jellies exhibit. Having been stung by one when I was 13, I have a huge respect for them and their power.

My Macro Project

Last year I purchased a new macro lens filter and set out to have some fun. I took some amazing photos but quickly realized macro photography can be very creative and challenging, especially if the subject you are trying to shoot isn’t stationary.

This is one of my recent projects to start displaying my work. I took this macro photo using my +4 filter on a 18-55 mm lens at f/5.6, 1/60th of a second, ISO 400. The subject is the label of my bottle of Don Perignon. I have blown it up to a 20×30 poster and framed it. It now resides in my dining room which is the first decorating piece in that room.  The picture below was taken with my iPhone, so please excuse the noise!
