I’ve been taking photos again.

Okay, there was a reason.  We had a heritage festival here this weekend at Maplewood off of Nifong.

I did realize that the really nice macro lens I was using really brings things up close.  Here is how the house looked to me most of the time.

But look at the quality of those shots, so crisp and clear and big!

I tried to get the buggy in one shot, but couldn’t stand away from it enough to get it one shot, so I…..

did the best I could.  I couldn’t stand far enough away to not get anyone in the shot.  I thought it was a little further away, oh I just didn’t do well on these, I tried better on the next conveyance.

Apparently I learned something, I tried to do better with each shot.

I was still standing a little bit away from it.  But there were people…..

This gentlemen was talking to some folks about his set-up.

I also got to see my mothers cousin’s wife and her daughter  Marie and Cathey.

Cathey is spinning some wool and later she will spin it into 2 ply or 3 ply skeins of yarn ready for knitting with.

She uses the same machine to do both, spin, and ply. (I hope I said all that right.)

So that is all for now.

Next time, I ran into an old friend at the Heritage festival, and He is now into beading and retirement.  Next time on Beadnfun

Thanks and happy beading
