Lyon's Arboretum, 12/28/13; 5 pictures = a story, 12/5/13

We were so lucky that Lyon's Arboretum did not have any rain.  Derek assisted me in trying out different techniques to capture nature's beauties.  Thanks Derek.  Linda and Milton did not need assistance.  We had fun and look forward to meeting up again.

 I was a bit timid to get this little frog from the front.  Not a problem for Linda.  Nature but beauty?
Here is Linda's picture. Cute, huh?

5 pictures = a story...
Our last assignment for Scott Kubo's photography class was to have 5 pictures - no less, no more to tell a story. Here is mine.

May everyone have a healthy and fun 2014. Happy New Year!

B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l flower shots! I love the soft colors of the shots. That 5 photo story is so creative. Hope you have a Happy 2014!

Shun Wah, thanks- I especially like my last one for its soft colors. Guess what I just added a picture that Linda took of the frog. She did use her super zoom from her Panasonic camera. I was using a 60mm macro. For the story - as soon as I saw the kids getting ready for their trip - I thought, yes!!!

Great marco shots, good saturation and focus. I like your story too, cute. Happy New Year!

Erick, thanks- I did enjoy using my macro lens. Call me when you go to take sports pictures at UH.
