This past fall Heidi encouraged me to post one of my photos to Macro Mondays.
I'm not sure how the algorithm works for Explore on Flickr but since participating in Macro Mondays several of my shots have shown up there. What a surprise that first time when I woke up to so many messages that people had faved/commented on my photo, I wasn't sure what was going on. This is my favorite shot to the group so far, weathered and worn
I have my eye on a macro photo conference later in the year. There are a couple of macro photographers that I follow on Facebook that will be presenting there, one is Don Komarechka, an awesome photographer of snowflakes. The price is reasonable and I'm hoping I'll be able to make it to that.
This past year I took photos of two families for Christmas cards.
For now...first flakes of 2016.
