Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #33 -- Close Ups!
Today's Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #33, sponsored by Carly of the blog Ellipsis, has the theme of "Up Close!" She doesn't mean macros, but just close ups of things that we like to take pictures of. Right away I thought of my cats, and ran to take close up shots of their faces. Here are Socksie and Silver, close-up. I tried to take one of Stevie but I think she has a cold -- she's been sneezing and has a watery eye, so I couldn't get a good one of her. Last of all, I decided to get a close-up of one of the squares to the quilted wall hanging my daughter-in-law Steph made me for my birthday a number of years ago. I think it is so cute and it is certainly one of my prized possessions. So that is the last item featured here.
For Carly's Question of the Week, she wanted to know if we used an SLR or a point-and-shoot. I use an SLR -- a Canon EOS 10D. It is quite big and bulky, though, so I have ordered a Nikon Coolpix to keep in my handbag.
