Turtle Blur?


I was practicing using the macro mode on my camera with this seed pod. It looks like a little turtle to me. How about you? It is a little blurry. I have got to figure a way to hold the slim camera when taking photos. I don't have a tripod and I am used to a bigger camera. Thus, I don't realize I am shaking and make a blur. I should remember to "go back" and look at the photo I just took. I do know how to do that. Ü

Fun shot! I do see the cute little turtle (aka seed pod). I'm getting acquainted with a new camera myself, but have the opposite problem ~ it's bigger than I'm used to. Never a dull moment, eh?

ThanX for the blog anniversary wishes. It's been a fun year. I appreciate your visits and comment.

Try bracing your elbows against your body. It does help to steady.

And yes, it definitely looks like a turtle.

I totally agree about it looking like a turtle, cause when it first started downloading the photo i thought how did those turtels get in the trees. LOL

I have seen all kinds of blur in my pictures, but never a turtle - maybe it was a turtle all along?

You could have saved this for Odd Shots Monday, Paulie! I had to do a double-take when I 1st saw it. I thought, "Naw, it can't be a turtle!" Too cool. I loved your snowmen cards also. I love stamps and card making too. I have added my friend Claudia's blog to my blogroll as well as your's FINALLY. She is a Stampin' Up demonstrator & very good at it. You should check out her blog. I think you will like it.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .

Blog Your Blessings Sunday
