Is hanging his bloom in dismay
If they had just kept him wetta
He’d be a houseplant today
Folks liked the other plants betta
Now he’s alone on the shelf
Even a plant with no uncle or aunt
Shouldn’t spend Christmas Day by himself
Now who would have thought that there’d be a song about a poinsettia? Click here for the full lyrics.
I got myself a present – a Lensbaby lens for my camera. I sold a few pieces of my glass and decided to treat myself. It came in yesterday morning and I did not allow myself to open the box up until I did a few chores around the house. I finally opened it up around noon and started playing around. Boy, do I have a lot to learn!! I took around 200 images (good thing for digital) and have about a dozen that are passable. Maybe. The thing with the Lensbaby is that it is all manual, so I am REALLY going to have to learn how the camera works – mainly ISO settings and aperture size so you don’t get blown out images. Thankfully some post-processing adjustments in Photoshop can be made, but it can’t correct everything. I’m going to have a lot of fun over the next two weeks!!
