First, I dug holes and planted trees. I’m not a yard worker by choice, believe me. But there was too much work to let my poor hubby do it himself today, so I gave him a hand.
My, that’s a big hole to dig…
for a freaking big tree
keep digging !
It took us over 1h30 to get it right…
Ain’t it pretty
a well deserved pause
We have a LOT of stuff to plant
That was easier
the family, plantation pending
and some tools
some idea of the final placement
Proof of hard work
and what the hell is that ?? My new MACRO lens !
This is my first real, dedicated lens, ever. It’s a Minolta MD 35-70/3.5 Macro. Probably close to 40 years old. It cost me 41€, shipped. Pretty darn good bargain. So that’s the second unusual thing I did today. I shot close-ups of plants, leaves, etc.
The bokeh is ugly harsh/busy, but the resolving power is jaw dropping
Viewed full size the photos look like taken with a friggin’ microscope
Of course the NEX 7’s 24MP sensor has something to do with that, too
He supervised the whole operation
That was my favorite part of the yard, prior the plantations
AAAhhh, rays of SUN. Unbelievable
My future favorite part of the yard…
We taught him NOT to help with gardening. So far, so good.
