95-101/365: Far Away, So Close

With this posting of Project 365 pictures, I am finally caught back up to the current week. I am completely in love with my new camera’s digital macro setting, which the first few photos makes clear.

 April 5: My favorite spring flowers are lilacs, so I couldn't help but stop and take pictures of the first ones of the season.

April 9: I was thinking my birthday wasn't going to have a picture until I got of the Metro and saw the huge, orange full moon rising over Pennsylvania Ave. My tiny camera doesn't do it justice -- it was truly beautiful.

April 9, part two: I love the way this picture came out, and wish I could say it was intentional.

April 11: I almost forgot to take a picture, but remembered while hanging out with friends, watching "Pineapple Express" on DVD. The cats were as bored and unamused by it as we were.

Programming note: I’m going to try to get back in the routine of posting the past week’s pictures on Sunday now that I am current once again.

    Another great photo shoot! What is the digital macro setting? Is it like super close-up for flowers, etc.? I have a special setting for flowers on the old Kodak, but must say those pictures are superior — and the colors (other than the rust!) are beautiful. You are nudging me along to a new camera. We’ll talk on that.

    @ Joanne — Wyatt is real honey — so cute! I’ll bet you can’t get him to be still much at all — shades of things to come 🙂

    Oh, Wyatt’s world is about to explode. They’re moving him up to the mobile babies room at day care. He’s right on the cusp of crawling, and the peer pressure should push him right over the edge. I anticipate that he will be one extremely frustrated baby until he can get to all the cool toys in the new room!

    This is a really cute picture of him! 😀

    Can I share OBT…J and I got the taxes done…at 645 this am. And by J and I, I mean him 🙂

    LOVE the pictures…these posts have served the purpose of showing me how truly BAD a photographer I am!

    @Joanne…your baby is A.dor.able.!!

    Gee Susan & J — NONE TO SOON!!! Were you up all night???

    @Mom…we were all proud of ourselves for getting them done early! This year, no snacks at the post office for us 🙂
