Pauls 52

Postby pah43 » Thu Feb 05, 2015 6:30 am

This may well be what I need to get me out of my chair and actually use my camera, cant promise what will come out some may be planned most will I suspect not be planned, Im looking forward to this! 8):
This shot I took in my garden this morning, saw the tiny spider and thought - well this would be a good start! went back later to have a go at a macro shot but the little spider was nowhere to be seen - moral here I guess is always get it in the can before starting the fancy stuff (!)

Cheers Paul

Woo Hoo! Paul's got a 52! :)
Glad to have you here with us Paul. Nice start.
It's a bit too cold over here right now for the spiders to come out and play.

Nice one Paul. Like you, I'd be better behind the camera than on the water! :)

Welcome to the 52 club. Great start! Nice spider shot. Obviously, not a rose I would want to smell, though. Quite an action shot, too!
