Although not an indicator of quality, my macro shot of a lily got selected for “Explore” on FLICKR. It was one of 500 “interesting” photos of May 2nd and FLICKR states over 1.4 million photos are uploaded daily worldwide.
There have been over 11,500 views of the picture so far in 24 hours. That’s a REAL high volume for me.
Sure wish that many would read my blog. I’ll even settle for a paltry 10,000 views a month. 😜

OK. I’ve finished bragging.
Some submissions in response to “Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Small Subjects”.
While not as artistic or as interpretive as Cee’s, they ARE small… LOL
Just thought that was a catchy title…albeit a bit misleading like our media. Just a tad misleading…’cuz the butt’s the other end.
I guess the news guys are finally rubbing off on me after all.
But as I watched my kids and their friends play in the front, I felt like playing around with my new, fancy-schmancy Canon point and shoot – specifically hand held close-ups of the business end of a nice cigar.
It was amazing that an inexpensive camera such as this could take such equally amazing (yuk to some!) close-ups:
I did switch to my standard Canon DSLR to snap these fun snapshots of my kids. Little Brooke likes the distortion that erupts with this Canon 10-22mm lens…although a certain pro photographer buddy of mine will likely BBQ me over a slow but hot flame for using it.
