A Stroll in the Garden

The first two photos were taken at Wonderwood Park…one of my favorite places to go when visiting the kids.  It is a very easy walk from their home.

    • I have to admit…I am not using my macro lens. I guess I gave up on it, but it is still on the to-do list to learn to use it! I have signed up for a year long (free) photography class, and I know that macro shooting will be taught at some point. Meantime, I am learning and having fun at the same time! 🙂
