Here's giving you the "Blues"
Lens: Pentax 100 WR Macro Camera: K5 Photo Location: Saugus Ma. 
Posted By: charliezap, 04-05-2012, 01:06 PM

I had a chance to drag out the macro and take some shots of the cineraria plant that my son gave us when we returned from our vacation.The plant was taken outside and the flash was used to balance the lighting and allowing me to shoot at small apertures for sharpness.It feels good to be getting back in the swing of things.The last shot was converted to "Pastel" mode with the K5.---charliezap
