Check Mate 20.365

I'm so excited that I just got a telephoto lens for my camera. A bonus is that also has macro capabilities. I don't know how to use the macro settings yet, and am having fun trying to figure out the lens. Telephoto is going well (with the tripod!) Danny wanted to try it out and took plenty of pics of his chess set. For this pic, we set the camera on a tripod. Dan zoomed in onto the pieces that he wanted to highlight. He is having fun playing around with my camera - I think he wants one for himself. I hope that throughout the year, our photos will get better. I can't wait to share them with you.


  1. This picture is great. What kind of camera do you have? I'm always in the market for a new one. LOL..mine is just a little point and shoot, and I've been wanting a Nikon D60 for a while, but they're a little pricey for me so I'll have to wait. Some day though...

  2. Thanks Elle!! I have a Canon XTi. Hubby gave it to me as a birthday gift last year. Just got a Sigma 70-300mm telephoto macro lens. Keep saving your nickels and dimes and you WILL get your camera!!! :)

  3. Hey Judi- I wanted to come over and take a look at your blog, thanks for stopping by mine! I love this community.

    I wish I had a telephoto lens, what kind of camera do you have?? I have a NikonD70, but no special lens. Someday!
