Flower of the day: August 6, 2020. Using long lens

Using the long lens for the first time
Surprised at the clarity. It was interesting to walk looking through the camera because everything seemed closer that it was. Filter free pics.
Ellis’ attempt at the flower using the long lens camera. The strap around her neck pulled down her small frame and she could barely hold up the camera. I wish I had taken a picture of her like that but I was too nervous she’d fall face forward if I wasn’t holding onto her shoulder. Is it obvious I’m overprotective?!

This entry is for Cee’s FOTD photo challenge! This is my first time using the badge and putting FOTD in the tag. Whoohoo, learning slowly here.

Thanks and have a good Thursday. 🙂

  1. Pretty Esther – I have never done a photo challenge before. You certainly rose to the occasion and tried out that long lens too with these pretty flowers.

    • Thank you! I think you will enjoy these photo challenges. It’s fun to look through your photos and see which ones will fit the prompts. It’s up to your interpretation; that’s what makes it fun.
      Check out Cee’s photo challenges link: it’s helpful that she lists all the challenges on her site. Different kinds of challenges: writing prompt, photo prompts, poetry, etc.

      • Thank you for the two links Esther – I will check them out tomorrow. I have a few more flower photos, one which I will use for Wordless Wednesday soon. I am headed to bed earlier tonight – I was trying to catch up here in WP last night and didn’t get to bed until 12:45 a.m.! Have a good weekend Esther – hugs from afar.

      • Great, I hope you check them out and find one you like. The Wordless Wednesdays are one of my favorites after the FOTD challenge.

        Happy weekend and to a good night sleep! Take care and talk to you later. 🙂

      • Yes, I’ve been having some fun with it. You have a good Sunday too – wish I was on your time and it wasn’t already 9:19 … I hate doing things in the house as the day seems to just fly (in the wrong direction).

      • A slower pace is always good! I would like a longer day, thus more sleeping time. I could not keep my eyes open last night and I just have to get more sleep than I’ve been getting. Years ago that might have worked – now it doesn’t. When I worked at the diner through college, I had to be on the floor every weekend at 6:45 a.m. and was on my feet constantly, maybe 15 minutes to grab a bite to eat, until 3:00 p.m. I’d be out with friends (the entire staff of the student newspaper hung out together every weekend) … they didn’t start work til noon and I had to be at work at 6:45 a.m. Wasn’t fun – sure could not do that today. We used to get series tickets for concerts for lawn seats and it was a good 90 minutes away, let alone trying to get out of the parking lot after a concert that ended at 10 or 11 p.m. That was eons ago (circa 1974-1976).

      • I know what you mean about needing more sleep! It seems I need more and more.
        20s are the years when you can survive on little sleep and still go about your day. I don’t know how I pulled all nighters and was able to cope. But I remember falling asleep in class and getting embarrassed by dropping my arm off the writing table. lol. Total giveaway that I was not paying attention.
        Those sound like fun years of going to the concerts with friends and working at the diner (although at the time it must’ve been hard). Good memories!

      • Funny, I was just thinking that I mentioned Jurassic Quest, a dinosaur event that is in an outside concert venue – that is the same venue where we used to go all the time. We had series tickets for the same groups every year (Beach Boys, Chicago were always in the series). Yes, I don’t know how I did it either – we were much more resilient back then, but I really do need more sleep than I’ve been getting. I had several classes through the years that I would routinely nod off in, especially an archeology class. The class could have been interesting, dinosaurs which I’ve always found fascinating, but the professor was very boring, stood at the lectern and just read out of the book and quizzes/tests were based on the book. My notes were a scream … they would start off at the beginning of the sentence and trail off to nothingness. Many years ago now.
