Macro Filters

I subscribe to the Photojojo! newsletter and read about different ways to do macrophotography. I'm too poor to buy an expensive macro lens for my Canon so I bought macro filters in Connecticut when I visited Anna and Aaron in October. Photojojo! said they can be bought for under $20. Nope: mine were $60! Aaron told me about the drawbacks of filters (poor focus is the big problem) but I bought them anyway. My first project was photographing walnuts that Amy was using in her cookies. I liked the result. But of course I failed to take notes so I have no idea which filters I used on this photo. And if I had re-read the article about aperture size and tripods before I took the photos, I am sure I could've done better.

Connecticut Sparrows

I went to New Haven last week to visit my daughter Anna. We went to Stony Creek in Branford, where I found a bunch of sparrows on this rose bush. Sparrows are very plentiful on the shore, unlike here. If you know what kind of sparrows these are, drop a comment!
