Macro Monday | Week 35

Happy Labor Day! Day off work today, my 32nd birthday tomorrow. Hopefully I will feel better soon after spending the last week and a half walking around like a zombie. Wish me luck, friends! πŸ˜‰


Macro Monday 35



    • Thanks, Laila! The extra day off today helped quite a bit! Hopefully tomorrow will be smooth sailing. I hope you have a fantastic week! πŸ™‚

  1. Ha, yes I was wondering where you were Patty . . . walking around like a zombie and then, boom, this morning (or late last night) you resurfaced in the WP universe. Wishing you a happy birthday tomorrow (I may call you and sing to you) and a fabulous day off with lots of sleeping in, naps, dog games and eating!

    • You are so funny, Sue!! I can’t wait to see you again! I have to teach this year on my birthday. How disappointing that Labor Day fell on September 1st! Geez. At least I had today off to sleep in, cuddle and kiss Bailey, read, and eat. πŸ˜€

  2. Happy (early) birthday, Patty! I hope you get to celebrate in lots of fun ways and enjoy your day! Gorgeous shot, also; this would definitely be party of my calendar. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Ngan! I completely forgot to tell you! So I started looking up calendars after your suggestion a few months back, and good golly almighty they are pricey! The lowest cost one I found was about $18/each, and that would be without shipping costs from me to you! Egads!

  3. That’s so delicate simply stunning and the colour to die for on a different note 🎈happy birthday to you for tomorrow 🎈🍰🎈🍰🎈🍰 I really hope you feel well enough to enjoy it xx

    • I’m not sure, Cheryl! I think my body has been fighting off a bug of some sort. I felt a tightness in my throat the first Friday back at work and I’ve been ridiculously exhausted every day since. Today was better, thank goodness. Perhaps that just means I should only work four-day weeks?? Hahah! πŸ˜‰

      • Hey Patty, I’d vote okay on a 4 day work week with full pay!!! Hoping you will start to really feel better soon (not so tired), especially for your Birthday-Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday to you…and many more. Cheryl.

      • This week has been loads better, Cheryl! Tomorrow is already Friday and we are off to Santa Cruz for the weekend! Yay!!

  4. Lovely picture Patty! And a big happy birthday to you! Woohoo!! I do so hope you feel well and that it is a wonderful day full of much love and care! 😘

  5. Happy Birthday, Patty! Hope you have a wonderful day celebrating and taking some time for yourself! Gorgeous macro as usual πŸ™‚ Love the contrast of the peach/orange petals with the dark background!

    • My dad planted several gerbera daisy plants last year and I love taking shots of them when I visit every Saturday! Labor Day fell on September 1st this year, so I guess I’ll have a fun day of celebrating/teaching tomorrow! *fingers crossed* πŸ˜‰

      • Oh, serendipity.
        I was just grumbling over in Lightroom.

        I’m looking to learn how to use the color numbers attached to the pixels to distinguish color casts. Until now I’ve just been looking at the histogram and judging with my eye, but that only takes you so far.

        You said you were a Lightroom teacher, do you know where I can learn about that, or what I could read. Something technical would be bliss at this point. If one more Redditer tells me about “the art” and trusting my gut I’m going to call Anonymous on them. πŸ˜‰

      • Hahha, yeah, I understand your frustration! Check out any of Scott Kelby’s books. He works for Adobe and is an easy read. πŸ˜€

  6. I wish you amazing and lovely Happy Birthday!!! ❀ While my eyes enjoy in your photography and my mind tries not to be jealous much πŸ˜‰

  7. Happy Birthday, Patty! Wishing you a day filled with friends, family, smiles and cake…lots of cake! πŸ˜›

    • Thank you, Nancy! Cake always tastes better on your birthday. Especially when you have to get the bitter taste of turning 32 out of your mouth! Teehee! πŸ˜‰

    • Oh yes, Bailey is the BEST medicine! I love him so. I have to show you a picture of the card he gave me. It was my favorite birthday gift!

    You pictures are stunning, Patty! So privileged to have had a lesson from you! I need more!! πŸ˜‰
