Hey, I got some blogs bookmarked over at today. That’s a good thing. I still have many, many more to do…but I’m working on it.

My husband, who hates crowds and going out into them, put on quite a display of fireworks in the back yard for us last night. Actually quite a few of our neighbors did. We could hear them all around our property, but couldn’t see any of them because the trees are so tall. Sounds like everyone was having a good time, though.

This is the last in the toad series for awhile. I hope to shoot some more soon. I’ve got a lot of ideas, just need to get to it.

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Kodak Max ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/6
Aperture Setting - f-8 Manual Mode
Gray Card Reading
Lens - Sigma 105mm portrait/macro lens
Cropped the shot a little tighter than it was
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

Things I’m Thankful to Cliff For…. Taking us to the races!

Fun shot that shows a lot of creativity even if it's a poor little cold frog. :-)

I'd have an expression like that toad, too, if I couldn't get the cap off. Fun shot.

The toad looks to be pondering the merits of continuing the sugar buzz by hopping up to get some gum balls :-)
