little treasures

One thing that is guaranteed when I get new gear is that I will spend lots of time experimenting, my creativity taking over.  Just thinking about the possibilities gets me excited!  The lensbaby is no exception – this is a fun lens, one that I am enjoying and still learning.  One thing that I’ve noticed with this lens is that it’s all about the sweet spot.

And because I love to collect little treasuries from nature and bring them in…….

All images in this post taken with my lensbaby.

    Ironically, I collected a few tiny pine cones yesterday for an upcoming project. I love how you’ve captured yours! :)ReplyCancel

    Such calming pictures..I have the Lensbaby Composer and I am so bad at pulling it out. Some of my fave shots are with the pinhole optic-I get my kids to look out window on nice bright day and then take the shot. Ethereal. Happy Holidays!ReplyCancel

      Thanks, Georgianna! I’m still trying to get the hang of it!
