This is our old Nikon EM film camera (above). It's a beauty. I haven't used it for a long time... NEEDS FILM. What a drag.
But, the other day I was looking at all the attachments and checking to see if any of them worked on my Nikon D40 camera. Some do, it seems.
The close up lens do...
I've only begun to explore what I can do with these lens and filters but look at this...
This is a photo of the oak trees outside the bedroom window taken with my Nikon d40 and the yellow optical filter.
They come out looking like impressionist paintings.
This is one that I lightened and sharpened on Picasa3.
I just love the ethereal look to the subject matter.
Then I tried the three close up lenses. They were a Pro 52 +1, +2 and +3 lens. I threaded them all on my Nikon and ...take a look.
Carl... up close and personal.
I need to keep reading up on what these lenses do and how to use them.
That means a day on the Internet.
And that isn't going to happen this weekend BECAUSE....
We got a phone call yesterday and my son, my daughter in law and THE BEANS are coming up tomorrow night and will be here for the weekend.
I took a few more photos outside yesterday, without any special lenses.
So I present them to you as a pre Easter gift.
Have a good weekend.

The sky, the Tulip tree and the mountains say Happy Easter, too
And the real, little toad says "Please don't step on me."
