2011/135: Morning Dew

For several mornings I would take Sara to school, and then come home and see the dew on the grass illuminated by the morning sun, thinking to myself that I should come back outside with the camera. Never did. Until I saw that Becky did exactly what I should have done all these times, and that finally gave the necessary kick in the pants. That very same morning, after dropping Sara off at school, I made sure my macro lens was on the camera, added the heart filter, and headed outside …. probably making the neighbors and anyone who drove by, wonder what the heck the crazy lady with the camera was doing in the wet grass!

  2. Cool idea with the heart filter! Is that your current header?

    • Thanks, Karen.
      Hmm… I don’t think either one of these are my header. I took a bunch of pictures that morning, and the header IS from one of them.

    Yes, wonderful with the heart filter! I’ll have to give my filters a try. Isn’t it great when we can inspire each other? That’s what I love about blogging!

    • Yes, it is! But I always feel a bit like a copycat, too.
      I’m hoping to try something with the sprinkler this summer (using the filters). Wonder if that will work?

    The effect from the heart filter is soooo cool. These shots sure make me want to frollic in the grass 🙂

  5. Lol, I’m sure it’s not the first time your neighbours have wondered what the crazy lady is up to again… but it was worth it for these shots… 🙂

  8. I may have to get one of those filters. I tried to make my own, but didn’t work out that well. Very cool!
