Nope, they’re not bugs or insects.  In fact, they are dark spots on a dried-up leaf of a palm tree which I found lying on the ground in our front yard.  Good Day!

    1. Morning Ann:

      Just exploring all the things you can do with a camera, and at the same time, getting ready to use a real macro lens; specifically Canon’s EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM which I ordered yesterday. It should be here in Panama by the 12th of January.

      Can’t wait to start taking real macro pictures. Isn’t photography exciting? You bet.

      Enjoy the rest of your day.



  1. Well, hooray — your photos are back. I share your enthusiasm for the macro shots. They’re really so interesting, and often reveal things that our eyes don’t see. I took a photo of some “green stuff” on a walking path on Sunday. When I looked at the photo, I discovered it wasn’t just stuff, it was a whole colony of tiny plants. It wasn’t the best photo, since I don’t have a macro lens, but it was good enough to delight me, and show me something else a camera can do.

      Glad to know the glitch was fixed. Never knew what caused the problem. But you know how technology works when it decides to play naughty tricks on us. Anyway it’s good news that normalcy is back.

      I agree with you Linda, macro or close-up photography is amazing. There are so many micro worlds out there that are invisible to the naked eye. With a macro lens, all that reality is discovered and shared.

      BTW, yesterday I ordered a true macro lens. It is the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro lens which should be here in Panama by January 12th, more or less.

      I can’t wait to see what surprises it will bring for all of us here at Lingua Franca. Of course you are included to the party.

      Glad that the photos are back!
