I received my order from B&H yesterday! Yay!  In addition to the extension tubes, I also ordered 2 UV filters – one for my zoom lenses, one for the 50mm 1.8, and 3 lens cap keepers.  My family will be happy to no longer hear me stomping around the house bellowing, “Where did I put my lens cap?????”

New toys for the camera means play time on this snowy, stuck inside kind of day.  I thought it might be fun to play “What is it?”

This next one is far too easy to include in the guessing  game, but I wanted to post it anyway because I think it came out pretty cool looking!

    • I tried the pocket thing Michaela – and it usually worked when I was outside. Problem is, when I’m in the house, I would just leave it lying around on a table somewhere and then forget where I put it!
      I’m hoping to have a few more people stop by and guess, so I’m not tellling yet if your answers are correct! 🙂
      Yeah #6 was too easy, but I really liked it!

    2. Scarf fuzz
    3. (my favorite by the way) a whisk?
    4. Tostitos chip

    • Um yeah, hovering your mouse over #5 shows “nose1” which I noticed when I guessed, but decided to leave blank anyway. Careful how you name your pictures 😉

      • Huh, I didn’t do that and I still guessed right! go figure! 🙂

        Comment by milkayphoto — February 2, 2011 @ 5:07 pm

      • HUH! Aw, that bugs me, darn it! I purposely changed the photo’s name on Flickr after I uploaded it because I thought that could happen! I didn’t think of it until after it uploaded though, so that must be what threw it off.

  11. I already saw some answers but I love #3, but #5 looks gross. LOL

    • I thought that whisker one was pretty cool too. Number 5 is gross? Funny, I didn’t see it that way, but maybe because I knew what it was! 🙂

  13. Aw, nuts, late to the party again. These are striking–you must be having a whole lotta fun! Love the colors in #2 and the shapes in #3 – would never have guessed what #3 is!

    • I’m looking forward to having even more fun in the spring when there will be more interesting things of which to shoot close-ups!
      #3 was definitely the tough one of this batch!
