Regular Random – Dandelion Seed

I recently acquired some extension tubes for my Sonya7ii (thisย a tube fitted to a camera between the body and lens to shorten the distance of closest focus of an object so that close-up pictures can be taken). As much as I love the new Sony, I don’t have a macro lens and they are expensive,…

Regular Random – Giant Magnolia

Regular Random, what can one say………….it IS Random and supposedly regular, I feared I actually might miss this week, but I was persistent and finally got the images off the camera; you see I had shot it, but not edited it.
