It is a Holden, not sure what vintage but I had one with a front end like that new in 1981 - it was a nice car for its time - had a 3ltr straight six motor.

A portrait for this week - this is Ellie, the Daughter of one of our club members and she modeled for us at an outdoor portrait session that John (Onslow) facilitated for us - we had a great time.

Cute little girl Paul. Looks like she is having fun playing the model. when my daughter was about that age, she'd ham it up in front of the camera. A few years later, if I asked her to play model, you would have thought I threatened to ground her by the way she'd react.

It was superb day, I enjoyed myself thoroughly not to mention lunch was pretty good too!

Back to some Macro for this week, Tom has been showing some great stuff and he's inspired me to buy myself a Raynox 250 macro attachment - macro lens was never even on the horizon but this seems to be a real alternative and at a price thats affordable. Ive no idea what the plant is its a bush in my front yard that has these tiny purple flower on it for most of the yr so it became my first victim -very pleased with the results so far. 8):

Nice shot Paul. Glad you like the new toy, but be warned, macro can be addicting. :)

Addiction to lenses isn't something my wife will let me become addicted to Tom :stop: However an attachment doesn't seem to count :clap:
I do like this lens Tom, easy to set up, light to carry, like you said it has its quirks but I reckon I can live with them, very pleased with the above shot - that was my first shot so it doesn't leave me much room for the future - Onslow reckons I should just move on now - Macro -been there done that 8~

Naw, it's ok to get attached to attachment lenses. :lol: One of the cool things about 'em is that they are easy to slip in a pocket when you're out and about shooting landscape stuff. See a bug, flower, plant, rock, or something else that you find interesting? Weather turns uncooperative for landscapes? It only takes a minute to whip out the Raynox and grab a few shots. :D I carry it around with me on all of my hikes along with my flash and DYI diffuser.

But have you tried focus stacking? :D

Haven't tried the stacking as yet but I had a look at your FB post and will give it a try soon, having major problems with my internet connections and it could be a few days before I can get normal access

cheers. Paul :D

Paul, nice flower shot - very intense colours. As for lens acquisition, this sort of thing has been called GAS - gear acquisition syndrome - something, a lot of us have found ourselves suffering from. :) Macro can be addicting to, as Tom has noted.
