I received a macro extension tube in the mail today, an inexpensive little device that lets my camera pretend it has a macro lens when actually I didn't spend the money on one.

So I took some first photos with it this afternoon to test it out.

I think things turned out looking pretty nice with it!























'Like unto bees, you are all occupied in gathering from the flowers of religious life a delicious honey which will be composed of virtues.'

St. Mary Euphrasia Pelletier

'May your soul, like a mystical bee, never abandon the dear little King and may everything within it be for Him.'

St. Francis de Sales

'Human sciences require a good understanding; in the science of the saints it is enough to have a good will. He who loves God most ardently, knows him best. Love, says St. Gregory,  is knowledge; and according to St. Augustine, to love is to see. David exhorts us to taste and see how sweet the Lord is: O taste and see that the Lord is sweet. He who tastes God most by loving him, sees him most clearly, and has the most perfect knowledge of the immensity of his goodness. He who tastes honey has a more correct notion of it than all the philosophers who study and explain its properties. " If," said St. Augustine, " God is wisdom, a true philosopher is a lover of God." God is wisdom itself; then the true philosopher (by philosopher is meant a person who loves wisdom) is one who truly loves God. To learn worldly sciences much time and labor are necessary; but to learn the science of the saints it is enough to wish and ask for it.

The wise man says that Wisdom . . . is easily seen by them that love her, and is found by them that seek her.'

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

Susanna how good to hear from you! I pray you are doing well?

Yes I have been much anticipating the fall leaves. I want to take many pictures of them.. it is my favorite time of year.

I even would like to see if it's possible to preserve some in resin. I have all sorts of ideas if it can be done.

Hi Shin, I'm doing fine.   Cheesy
I think I once preserved some leaves in a picture frame, or maybe that was ferns. 
I hope we have fall here soon in PA - almost 90 degrees today.   sweat drop

I hope so too! I am happily moved out here in PA now too! Cheesy

My air conditioning sure put my electric bill through the roof this summer. At least I have a lower rate now for this next month, though it's a bit late taking effect.

This year was surprisingly hot and dry.. I hardly had to mow the lawn at all, it was all dried out. And constantly watering the plants.. next year I think I will have a sprinkler outside to make it easier.

I drove down to Wilkes-Barre earlier today to get some curtains for the house. Lots of construction, not as easy a trip as I hoped, the GPS was all confused too. I have to get a newer one with up to date maps.

I am curious about the Mountain Park I drove by though, I am looking for more parks like the one I took all the lily pictures at. Cheesy
