Up Close and Personal

Hi there!

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, last Saturday I spent the day at the beach with Tim and a couple of his friends.  While Tim and Kurt were off spearfishing, I kept myself entertained by taking lots and lots of photos of the scenery.  I did a few close-up photos of bits of sea life that I found in the rock pools using my camera's macro mode.  I really like the way they turned out, so I thought that I would share them here.  

I know these are a little bit repetitive but there is so much sea life that gets washed up into the rock pools here that I would never have the chance to see back home.  It's all right there conveniently placed in the shallow water just for me to come and play with.  It's all so interesting to me!  I am also pretty impressed with the detail that my little compact camera is able to show.  I have a Sony Cybershot (not sure which exact type but I can certainly check and let you know if you are interested) and it's such a great camera for the price.  I've actually had pretty good experiences with every Sony product I've owned.  I still have the very first portable CD player that I ever owned way back before they invented the ones that didn't skip the CD every time you moved the player.  I used that thing right up until I got my first iPod and it STILL works.  

Anyways, that was a long tangent that was mostly irrelevant to this post.  I had a good time finding tiny critters  in the water, especially my friend, the itty-bitty hermit crab.  Don't worry, I returned him to the water after I was done photographing him.  No hermit crabs were harmed in the making of this blog post.  

Also, I just 'discovered' Picnik's photo editing site.  I like the Polaroid frame.  Can you tell?  Picnik is soooo easy to use and I highly recommend it if you are just looking for some basic editing tools and don't want to spend a fortune.

In other news, It's already time for another beautiful, sunny, sunshine coast weekend.  I am determined to wake up early enough tomorrow to drag Tim out to the Eummundi markets and spend money on things I don't need.  I will let you know how it goes.  

I hope you have a beautiful weekend too.  Do you have any fun weekend plans?
