In honor of the 3rd birthday of Tall Tales from Kansas I picked up my old Nikon point and shoot and went outside to take some pictures today. The old way. The way I used to take pictures way back when Tall Tales was a brand new baby. When I had to get up at nights to check the crib and be sure she was ok.
While I was doing it I remembered that lovely little feature where you press the button with a flower on it to put the camera in macro mode. This allows you to stick the camera right up close to something and it will still focus and take the picture. I don't know how it is that I had forgotten that, but I am glad I remembered. I am re-charging the batteries now. Chris and I have a wedding to go to on Saturday night. I am taking the point and shoot. I wonder ... can one capture the essence of a wedding in macro mode?
