Foxtail Photo Contest Finalist
A new favorite subject, with a colorful background and swaying in the wind you never know what kind of display you'll get.
Also experimenting with an old Spiratone Plura-Coat HD/MC 28-200mm Macro lens. 1:3.8-5.6 marked on front of lens and aperture on aperture ring 3.8-22...I have to use an FD/FL adapter for the digital camera, this time in manual, I can use it with shutter priority and adjust aperture manually as well as focus. I do have a problem with focus as I don't have a focus grid and my multi-vision contacts throws me off.....but the lens is fun to use...I think it'd work better in a controlled situation with a tripod. I do like the boeke or out of focus background.

Receiving an award from Better Photo is just like unwrapping a gift, the thrill is always the same! It is also exciting to be able to send my personal congratulations to each and every one of you and I look forward to seeing the gold though out the galleries. Merna
