This gorgeous Saturday morning I’m doing all I can to do as little as I can. In less than a couple of hours I’ll be going to work, so I’m trying to get the most (or least) out of my morning off. I was trying out a new strategy for getting sharp details in my macro photography. The strategy involves using live mode to zoom in and focus even better on the subject, which is probably old news to a lot of you. Anyway, this was working really well, but then everything started shaking. I’m not sure why, but I suspect it was due to the laundry machine spinning or something. It left me no choice but to pack up and call it good, because there was no way I could get away with the exposure time I needed.
Today’s picture is of the fuzzy needles of this very non specific cactus of the IKEA-variety. At some point I got a 3-pack of assorted little cacti because I wanted some plants in my apartment and needed something I for sure wouldn’t be able to kill by forgetting to water, or just going away for a while. So far it’s worked out really well, and they are all still alive.
