Blame it on the fact that I don't have a macro lens!



My friends and I were having our daily dropped-the-kids-off-at-school-so-now-we-can-chat chat when it started to lightly snow. One of us (not me) noticed that the snowflakes were so cool! We made a pact that we would run home, grab cameras, take pictures, and blog them. My pictures did not turn out very well. Repeat, did NOT turn out well. But I am showing you anyway. They were so gorgeous. I can't believe that they were this beautiful! I wish I had a macro lens! Anyone want to chip in and buy me one?

I love our daily dropped the kids off at school so now we can chat chats. I broke the pact by not posting my pictures because they didn't turn out at all. Maybe next time.

Those pictures are awesome! I'm sure Mike would love to buy the lense for you!

bobette - your pic DID turn out well~! what i want to know is, how many pics did you guys have to take to get a good one? i finally had my camera with me in the snow at the dentist today (strange coincidence lol) and i think i took 14 pics to get two that i liked, and i just have a point n shoot camera... nothing fancy. at least my battery was charged this time, which is more than it was on sun when i tried to take pics of the snow... i have loved all of your pics on your blog, and this one is truly no exception~!
