Much Anticipated Meeting

I am so excited this morning! I have a much anticipated meeting with a fellow blogger whom I admire very much. When I discovered her blog last year, I fell in love with her photographry. Billie described it as "topsy turvy" and it is!



We have been trying to connect this week since she is here on the island but just haven't been in the same place at the same time. And guess what? I bumped into her at the grocery store yesterday! She graciously agreed to meet me this morning over coffee and share some of her photography tips with me. To get ready for that, I put my camera on "macro" and shot what I think are good photos. Like these:





































I wonder if my style will improve or change after my meeting with Misty of Big Sweet Tooth?

You did good! Now I'm inspired to play with the macro setting on my camera this weekend. Looking forward to more of your experiments. Have fun!

Billie said...

Nice photos. Tell Misty hello for me and find out when she is coming to SMA! I want to meet her too.

Hey - her blog is so cool. I too want to meet her in SMA. Maybe we'll have a "mini" blogger get together. Let's see there is Billie, me, Deb, John, Richard - yup, that qualififes as a "mini" - don't you think?

Isla Deb said...

Yes, I love her blog, too! She's an excellent photographer. Speaking of which, I love your macro shots! Can't wait to hear about your visit.

lab: i'm with you. and thanks for including me on the list!

jamqueen: meeting somebody as nice as you was my pleasure indeed!

nancy: I take all the help and advice i can get. what amazes me most about Misty's photos is that she uses a little point and shoot digital camera, just like most of us. What a difference in the end product though. Go ahead. think out of the box and amaze us!

billie: i didn't get your comment until after i had met with her so didn't get a chance to ask her. however, i can tell you that she does intend to go back to SMA at some point this year.

kw: how sweet! you deserve a hug!

babs: indeed it does qualify for a blogger meeting. at least you guys would be having one. i fear for our second one.

if you get all of the great SMA bloggers together, be sure to let me know. i would move heaven and earth to get there.

Pics are great. I also need to play with my camera. I actually bought a Canon Rebel XS last Fall. But I have not had time to focus (ha ha) on it much.

Ah! the micro challenge! I'll have to dig my Olympia out and see what I can do with it. I've been avoiding reading the manual, that's been my problem.

Please send my best to Misty. I had wanted to get over to the island to meet with her during the pilates conference but work got in the way. Any idea how long she is going to be on island?
BTW - Great photos!!
