Water Droplets 2

So I've really been wanting a macro lens, but in no way, shape, or form did I have enough money to buy one. So, instead, I purchased some magnifying filters, and they really do the job well!

Of Old West, Civil War, and Tutorials

Ok, so I've posted some pictures of my sister before, and some of my brother, I've not really done any with them together. So, when I got them both "in the mood" at the same time, I pulled out my camera and said, "Let's go!"
So what that they're outfits don't really match? They're really cute together, don't you think?

And of course, our dog had to get in on the action too!

Now, for a quick question. Would anyone be interested in a few tutorials on ways to edit photos?

Waiting for Love

Promise me, O women of Jerusalem,

      by the gazelles and wild deer,

      not to awaken love until the time is right.
