I’m playing it safe this time- just a traditional still life. Although- I know that in my photo group I would get (gently) critiqued for having a square format and mostly for having no space around the edges- and perhaps for the shallowish depth of field! I might even get the kiss of death comment- “It would make a nice greeting card.” But I’m on winter break!
Our Fuji apples are all picked, and they have taken over the kitchen! I’ve made several batches of unsweetened applesauce, which I pair with a dollop of Greek yogurt for a treat. I have frozen much of it, but I still plan on making more. Unfortunately, I seem to be the only one eating it. 😦 I try to remember to eat at least one raw apple a day also-and I have made a dent in our supply.
Yesterday I made a special treat- a healthy, no-bake apple tart, using my friend, Carol’s recipe. It isn’t very low carb, but it is delicious! It has a walnut and date crust and cooked apples inside (with a bit of honey and spices). Yum!
I’ve been keeping to my word about practicing with my Lensbaby every day. I thought a major part of my practice would involve getting the Edge 80 off the Composer (so tight for these weak hands!), but so far, so good! Maybe it’s loosening up- or I’m getting stronger! I hadn’t done much with macro using the Edge 80 until recently, and I’m having fun with it. Raspberries were on my breakfast menu on Easter, so I took a few moments to take some macro shots. I’m finding the Edge 80 to be nice and sharp- similar to my 85mm macro.
