So, as I said, macro lenses are nice, but these macro filters on top of the macro lens open up a whole new world. This is a 90mm lens with a 10x filter. And what else to play with than of course my beloved Coke bottles. I had nicer bottler caps but wanted to use one that looked like it had some experiences…

I have recently been inspired by the recent decision by the English language’s most respected dictionary – the Oxford English Dictionary – deciding to including “<3" as an official English word. Yes, the heat symbol. As in, "I ❤ Flickr." Anyway, it inspired two shots – this is one of them. The other I haven't taken yet. I always wanted to do an up close drop shot, but was never able to until my macro filters arrived yesterday. Oh, how I love these things. So, expect to see more major macros coming up. And probably more drops shots to – and I promise to improve…

So apparently even 17 month old baby girls get the late night munchies. In this case, Nyla is caught during her “secret” fridge raid, on her tippy toes trying to get to the cheese. Its fine for now cause it is Kraft singles, but when she starts demanding Caciocavallo we are going to have a problem.

I had a late night at the office and wasn’t in the mood to take a photo after getting home so decided I wanted to stop somewhere to grab a quick pic. I drive by this place a lot and figured it would be a good typical Atlanta shot – so, here you have it – Waffle House and the pawn shop.

Probably the most boring picture I will post this year, but didn’t really have a chance to take anything better. Did want to capture my first trip to a hockey game since the 90s probably. And as I remembered, a lot more exciting than baseball, equal to basketball, and not as good as football. But most important, easiest to understand and enjoy for people (my wife) who don’t know anything about sports and not interested in learning.

Nyla wanted to wear her new rainbow dress. And since it was a rainy day, we decided to check out the not so popular Cumberland Mall down the street. While wasting time there, we went into Spencer’s Gifts for some odd reason and found they have tons of baby stuff – which was surprising… Anyway, they had this awesome baby fedora hat which I had to get for Nyla. And I guess she liked it cause she actually left it on her head – and gave me a face perfect for the hat. Thanks baby!

Out of ideas? Can’t seem to see anything good? Nothing come to mind? Tried to sniff something out? Can’t put your finger on it? Well, why not try to hear it out.
