    1. I am really liking photographing glass with my macro lens. Both color and light are captured beautifully.

    2. makes me want to play around with the idea. I just might do that. I don't have a macro lens that I attach but I believe I have a macro setting on my camera. you've inspired me - these could be printed and framed.

    3. Thanks! I have arthritis, and can't get up and down easily, so have been using my zoom lens to take photos on the ground for years. They come out looking very much like the ones taken with the macro. Give it a try!

  7. __ Kathy, "The Wife of my Life," is a deep sew person too, and knows well these photos.
    __ LONG ago, as a teen, I worked at a rather primitive factory named The Union Pin Co. in Winsted Ct. (A very interesting location and power source) There, the pinheads were mechanically dipped in dyed and molten plastics, when cooled they were of many colors and very useworthy. I thank you for the memory! _m

  8. So glad to bring back a memory! I started sewing when I was 12 years old, so might have used pins from that factory.
