My FD to ES adapter give me the ability to take out the inifinity ring in my adapter and use my 50mm 1.8 lens as a macro is a pretty nifty trick. I only paid $10 for the lens as well! Here's Verrone's Morning Star with a visitor and Crazy Ivan.

I am getting the itch to replace my broken camera so I can use the prime lenses that my son and I bought last year. Meanwhile, I have a wonderful Canon G15 that takes very good to excellent pictures without a tripod and with the auto settings. Way back when, my father in law bought a Canon G1, then a G2 and then I bought a G3 and Canon has them out to G16 now. I am amazed how much smaller it got and I can put it into my jeans pocket. I am tempted by the fact the camera I want has 4.5 stops of shake reduction and also built in GPS and a setting that combines 4 pictures into one at the pixel level to improve sharpness and color.

I just switched back to my Asus VX279Q monitor that is 27 inches wide. I had been using my son's cheaper 25 inch Asus monitor. What a difference a good monitor makes when viewing dahlia pictures!
The colors are deeper and the pictures are much sharper. PNWgal's picture of the orange dahlia and spider was very good on the old monitor but now it really pops. I really do not like using my wife's laptop for viewing pictures either. A good color corrected monitor is worth the money.

Nice picture of one of Margaret's favorite dahlias Sarah Mae A IC pink. It was hybridized by the late Roy Takeuchi of San Francisco. They had not been growing it in S.F. for some time and I sent some stock to them a few years ago. We no longer sell it as it is a below average(but not terrible) tuber maker but we grow lots of it every year:

Ted - are you angry about the tattoos? or that Benny asked Noni instead of you?

I would've gotten a chuckle if the center photo had a green center.

"or that Benny asked Noni instead of you?"
I am in the generation that did not appreciate tattoos . They were generally only on drunken soldiers and sailors and motorcycle gang members back when along with a few long time prisoners at the State Pen. I still see them as a fad that will cause regret in the future when they are no longer popular. I am in the Hippie generation and old Hippies can cut their hair and put on some nice clothes and one would not know... One of my high school classmates was a Hippie for awhile and ended up as an attorney who wore a suit every day.

I am of Ted's generation, LOL..I have a lot of dear young friends who are quite tattooed and It makes me sad to see a lovely young woman dressed as a bridesmaid for a friends wedding with all those tattoos sticking out on her bare harms and shoulders. I sometimes think something tiny on an ankle might do, but then I see someone with an ugly one there...besides, my ankels are not things of beauty at this age :whistling:.

But hey giv me e some tie dyes and a granny skirt and Birkenstocks...I wear my silver hair down and flying in the wind and I love folk music. I can't imagine a more wonderful time to have been growing up...we thought we could change the world, and maybe we did in some ways. We knew that we could imagine ANYTHING, and it was possible to make it happen if we all worked together. I wear my tattoos on my heart, not my arms Thumbs up

That said, I am sure my heart has a beautiful dahlia tattoo on it Big Grin

These are my favorites of Darcy's photos. Thought I would put them into the photo thread.
