Tuesday – Anything Possible – New Lens

Santa brought me a new lens for Christmas. This is the kind that I can clip on my iPhone and be available whenever I want to take a picture. Some of my animal shots were subject to me getting close enough to capture the image. Now I have the opportunity to take a shot without disturbing the subject. Here are some examples.

This is a shot of Peggy taken yesterday from the back porch.


I know you can hardly see her. This next photo is from the same spot.


Here is our Christmas tree.

Here are some ornaments from the same spot.

Well, you get the idea. Here are Bailey and Lucy being completely natural.

So I think I may be able to catch some good shots. Here is hoping so. Keith Channing is on vacation, so Kreative Kue will be back in three weeks.
