Love that macro lens…


I am testing out, enjoying, my new Olympus TG-4 with it’s macro setting. Amazing! I set it to focus on the center square, then I can rearrange the composition before fully pressing the shutter.

Additional blog begun…


Ok. Friends who suggested I begin a “retirement” blog I’ve taken your words seriously. Here’s the link:Link to “1952 Next Chapter” blog.

I am NOT going to share this on Facebook because I don’t want to bore. We’ll see how this goes! No game plan other than to share experiences as they happen.
