project 365: days 42-47

I think I'm having some mathematical issues, because I don't think today is day 47. Hmmmm. I got off on my numbering last week, so I'm just going to post what I have. M'kay?

day 42: it arrived!

Photobucket


I'll spare you the long, boring story of my macro lens; basically I returned mine and got a new one. I thought it had issues, but it turned out that I have issues. Oops. The picture above is a shot of my new lens, but instead of focusing on the lens, I focused on what the lens was "looking" at. Cool, or just plain weird?

day 43: testing 1, 2

Photobucket


Here I'm playing around with the macro lens. I wasn't going for anything in particular here...just standing at the sink fixing lunch.

day 44: a gift from Israel

Photobucket


A couple weeks ago, Doron's uncle came to visit from Israel. It was wonderful to see him! He brought this bracelet; a gift from my mother in law.

day 45: valentine's day

Photobucket


day 46: powerlines

Photobucket


You know me...I love a good powerline shot. I wish the clouds would have been more interesting, but I'm trying to be more consistent with my 365 pics, so I had to have something. ;-)

day 47: non verbal communication

Photobucket


This is the reaction I got from TT when she saw me bringing the camera to the car. I think the message is pretty clear.

Is everyone having a great week? I hope so! Happy Tuesday! ♥♥

That is so amazing. I plan on getting a good macro lens later this year after I get my new camera and 85mm first. I love the clearness, detail, and close ups of all these shots. You did so well I'm definitely impressed but I'm always impressed so it's nothing new!

Mom of M&Ms said...

Love those two macro shots.. Brillant.. and TT is cracking me up.. must be a "last born thing" cause M2 never really liked being photographed until last week... Sursly!

Sheri said...

LOL at her reaction to the camera! HA!

Only you could make powerlines look good.

And LOVE the water shot.

happy me said...

Oh! The H2o, the powerlines, the bracelet, the Livia. Thx. I needed *ALL* those today.

Cecily Healy said...

Great shots! How exactly did you take that water shot?

Jaime said...

All great! Beautiful bracelet too. Do you happen to have the specs on your water macro shot? I can't seem to get the ones I take right....maybe because I am suing extension tubes w/ my 70-300 instead of macro lens?

Jaime said...

^that should be 'using'^

Jill - FNA Photography said...

So glad you are loving your macro lens now -GORGEOUS shots with it too!!! You know I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine :-)

TT is too cute! Oh my word that girl is something else! :-)

Now that bracelet - girlfriend that is GORGEOUS!!!! Oh how I love it! Enjoy wearing that and what a special thing to know it came from Israel. I pray to visit there one day.

Love you!
Jill

Casey Martinez said...

which macro lens are you using? I love the hearts shot and the water shot!! My little one is bound to cover her eyes as soon as she figures out how to do that. She is going to be so sick of my camera before she turns two!! ;0

Jessaca said...

Love the first two photos!!! The water photo looks like something out of an advertisement in a magazine for a water faucet. Well done!! Can't wait to see what else you capture with your new macro lens.
Have a good one!!

Tracy said...

You are welcome to join our 365 Project!
Here is a site that gives you the day of the year- today is 46.

Great shots, love the bracelet!

Brooke said...

Okay - your photos just make me go WOW! You get me every time. That lens shot - YAY and your water faucet pic blows mine out of the water!!!! I really - really - REALLY want a macro lens :D

Natalie said...

Love pic #2 of the water. Very neat! You are a great multitasker to take an amazing picture while making lunch. ;-)

Brooke said...

PS - that last one looks all to familiar :D

onagracenote said...

A lovely collection of photos and your macro shots are incredible! The detail in the second one is amazing.

love and life ♥ said...

These are all absolutely fantastic. I love the candy shots! So cute!!

Skye said...

fabulous photos! wow!

Lynda said...

that first shot is TOTALLY COOL! Love it.

I love that water drop shot too - such great color! This post has a lot of fabulous photos. Good work this week!

When I was doing 365 last year, I had a TERRIBLE time figuring out my day numbers. LOL. I think I finally found a website that tells what day of the year it is.

Naomi said...

So, so cool. Love your macro shots. Someday I hope to invest in a macro lens! Oh and the bracelet is gorgeous! Lucky you :)

jess@notyouraveragemommy.com said...

Holy Moley those water drops are amazing, and how do you have so many comments after posting one hour ago??? Congrats ;) Thanks for your always sweet comments at my place...it means a lot!

Ashley Sisk said...

You're too funny and I love all of the shots this week...I'd write something more clever and witty but I'm out of energy. Hope you're having a great day!

Adeena said...

#1 is way cool. :D

The bracelet is so pretty!

And TT's reaction looks very very familiar... I think my tt is getting annoyed with the camera, too. ;)

Kristal said...

The water shot is AWESOME! And love the candy hearts. I didn't get any of those this year even though I really wanted too... oh well.

Sara said...

The first shot is so creative!! And the water picture is amazing!! The bracelet is gorgeous, love love love. And my tt simply turns his back on me every time I bring out the camera. But if we were in the car, he'd probably cover his eyes too!

SugarberrySensations said...

And once yet again, Karli, you have BLOWN me away with your photographs! Karli, Karli, Karli! You go girl - you are AMAZING!
Loving your new lens!

Are you enjoying this FANTASTIC weather? It is INCREDIBLE!!!!

Liz said...

isn`t that they way it is with lens`s sometimes you think something must be wrong with it when something is actually wrong with us..... many aday i think my camera must be broken because most of my shots are not that good, but then i remember.. I am new at this and it takes time and practice and knowlege which i am learning all so slowly. But fun though. TT, is too cute, saying not again..

love these shots have fun with your lens.

GabbyRM said...

Great shot. The water looks so cool!

Wow, lady! You have me awestruck!! What a great set of pics. :) I adore TT's communication, and how fun that you have a new toy!! :) someday... lol!

And that water shot -- way too cool! Love the colors.

Have a great week, Girlie! :)

Just started following, thanks to Jen B and Courtney! I love your blog. Did you use a flash with the water shot? Or is there a tutorial in store for that one? Pretty please!

Trish ~ ♥ ~ said...

Made my way over via Courtney's place ~ fabulous seltzer and orange shot. One day when I have some time I will play around with a shot similiar to it. Thanks for the set up tips.

I took a look around while here and enjoyed my stay. Great photographs ~ I'll be sure to be back.

Natalie said...

WOW! I'm SO behind on commenting on your posts! I'm catching up though! So first of all, that macro of the water..BLEW ME AWAY!! Love it. Secondly...my son reacts the same way as TT in that last shot to my camera! I am so ready to upgrade to Canon and want the 100mm macro IMMEDIATELY..or ASAP. Which macro lens are you using there? Oh and lastly (promise) I have my sony A230 up for sale with all kinds of extra goodies if you know anyone lookin for a great DSLR! (hehe) <3
