Pictures for Pam, Day 60: Macro Monday: New Year's Resolutions

Pictures for Pam, Day 60: Macro Monday: New Year's Resolutions
(+6 insets!)

Today isn't just Monday…It's MACRO MONDAY! This ipernity group took the past two weeks off for the holidays but they are now back on schedule with a new project: "New Year's Resolutions / Good Intentions for the New Year". I thought about our plans this year and how I might incorporate them into macro images. I came up with three ideas!

First is our resolution to continue our healthy lifestyle--namely to continue our Ketogenic way of eating along with daily exercise. My macro could be my pile of rocks which I use to mark each lap of walking up and down my driveway for my daily exercise.

Second is our resolution to get our back deck finished, which has been a fairly sizable project because there is a deck outside our master bedroom as well as the main deck. I thought the perfect macro could be showing the wood planks with droplets on them for added interest.

Third is our resolution to get our RV travel underway so we can begin having adventures out and about! Our truck purchase was integral to our plans so I thought that some macros of the truck would be perfect. As it happened, it's been raining so droplets on the truck are a no-brainer!

I planned to take pictures yesterday but ran out of daylight so I got out there before it began raining today…and well, I went crazy. Hundreds of pictures later I forced myself back inside and copied them onto my computer. Holy moly, what a lot of cool pictures…as you may know, I'm coo-coo about abstracts so these close-ups were really fun to look at. One of my favorite aspects to photography is meandering through my pictures, cropping them and discovering the gems. I got really lucky today...too lucky I think! :D It was really hard to choose so in the end, I processed a handful of them to share! Let me know what you think!

Pam, today has been all about droplets for me, so I checked out your droplet shots--so many pretty flowers covered with drops! I especially loved your Orange Day Lily pictures…such stunning flowers and even prettier with droplets!! I hope you are doing ok today, my dear. I hope all goes well with your tests... I'm thinking warm thoughts about you as I always do! *BIG HUGSSSSSSSSS*!!!!!

Lucky indeed, but then luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Great droplet pictures, Janet, and the photos are making me think that your new truck is very colorful - red and green.

Spent the day catching up - bills, car, letters (yes, I still write letters), cleaning house. Nancy is recovering from the flu, so I'm also doing the cooking.

If she had been feeling better we probably would have gone for a hike today. It's cold but the day was sunny and beautiful and a hike would have been refreshing, but...

Still haven't gotten any snowshoeing in, but we have to go to the other side of the mountains soon and hope to do some then - probably Mount Baker.

Superb series! Referring to resent comment you posted on my photo, I have one suggestion though. Try sometimes also vertical composition ;-) My line of thinking could be that raindrops flow vertically, and therefore a vertical composition then may support that idea. But that is only one alternative way to see things around us.

A terrific main picture Janet, but I like them all. Talking of resolutions, I had a pedometer for Christmas....do you think my daughter is trying to tell me something ;-)) I am using it and try to have at least a 2 mile walk each day. Keep up the good work with your delightful photos in 2019.

I tell you that the whole series is just pleasant, healing, eye catching, each and every one of them. The wet rocks, are very familiar, because I collect them too...and I felt that you came over and stole my rocks, I don't have photos of them, so yours are enough for me. and then I move on to the drops...they are exquisite with the different color theme on each. What an eye and what a wonderful photographic study you have accomplished in this collection. I admire all you did here my dear Pod Sister. Hugs!!

My favorite is without a doubt the photo you present. I also like pip 1 with rocks.

Good resolutions? yes, I have to lose 4 kg, but since I also decided to eat chocolate, it seems incompatible to me :o)))

I'm also really going to enjoy every passing day since I'm retired, starting with laughing and smiling all the time (I might look stupid but I don't care, ah ah) because even if it's in my nature, I didn't have the opportunity every day before.
For that I have no effort to make, so it is an easy resolution to respect ;o)

I have other projects, like finding the way back to the animal shelters to help them (I used to do it before, a long time ago) but I shouldn't neglect my dog Dana, so it will be done in small steps.

And then of course, go back to the seaside!!!!...... **Hugsss**

WOW! Watta lotta drops!

I love all of these Janet............they all show your usual attention to the fine detail and composition. The main picture is excellent. I particularly like the muted colour palette and the little row of water drops underneath the large one!

If I had to pick a fave though, it would be PiP number 5 for the stunning red colour, closely followed by your "lap" stones.

Brilliant as always..!!

Lovely macro shot, Janet. I love the reflections in the water droplet. I love also the angle from which you have taken the shot and the very effective shallow depth of field. Best wishes, Joe

Oh wow, wow, wow you know how I feel about droplets and you have surpassed yourself, these are absolutely stunning Janet. I love the main one - probably because I love the colour, so your RV is a kind of blue.?

These pictures of droplets in a bokeh are amazing - this is the standard of photography that I am trying so hard to emulate. You do surpass yourself nearly everytime. Well done indeed.
