Growing up, I'd never had a negative encounter with a pinecone. Now where we live, it's a different story. These pinecones are quite large, and each petal has a painfully sharp thorn at the end of it. No rolling these guys in peanut butter and birdseed to use as makeshift birdfeeders.

Shot both of these with my Konica Minolta 70 Fuji HQ ISO 100 1/15 f-11 Aperture Mode Sigma 105mm lens

I know what you mean about those pinecones - I had a friend who gave me a necklace strung with one of the teeth. When people asked me what it was, I told them a bear claw, and it was so big and scary looking they believed me;)

Hi Micki, another Minolta film shooter... wonderful! I use a 700si and have for years. I'm saving my pennies for a 7D as I have all this money tied up in Maxxum glass. However, I suspect I'll keep using film also. I am particularly partial to Kodak HD and Portra as the colors are so realistic.

You have some very nice stuff here.

I'll put you in the rotation and check in regularly. Adding you to the blogroll. Us dinasaurs gotta stick together!
