Saturday Snapshots - April 21

Saturday Snapshots is a fun little non-book-related meme hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books. The idea is to post a photo that you or a friend or family member has taken.

I've got a couple to post this week:

Here's hoping that the Canucks keep going with the series. I made this cake back around the second game, and only just got around to pulling the photo off of my camera. The cake itself is made from scratch from a recipe that's at least three generations old now. And absolutely delicious!





This was one of my first shots with a macro lens. I have to say I really like the effects it gives, but it's challenging to use too.

I love working with macro... but now I'm hungry!

Trish said...

That macro lens is pretty cool. I should look into getting one for my camera. Did someone say Cake?

Love the macro shot. I'm not a hockey fan, but my husband loves the Philadelphia Fliers.

Laurel-Rain Snow said...

Love the shots...does that cake have coconut in it? Love coconut!

Thanks for sharing....

Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT

Eva @View from the Hillside said...

Looks like a good cake.
I have so much fun taking photo with my macro lense, and I love seeing nice macro shots.

Paulita said...

Someday I'll have a good camera with fancy lens. Hope your team does well, inspired by the cake. Here's Mine

I know nothing about working with a macro lens ... I really need to take a photography class! Here comes the Stanley Cup race! There are so many games being played that I can't keep everyone straight!

Cheryl @ Tales of the Marvelous said...

Family recipes are wonderful--a beautiful cake, and how fun to have that history!

Alyce said...

Two very different but fun shots there! That cake looks so yummy!

Lisa said...

Mmmm...hockey cake! Fun pics this week!

Irene said...

I'm salivating with that cake. Macro, I'd love to know how to do that.

I'm still figuring the macro thing out, Cathy. Hope you're not hungry anymore :). Thanks for commenting.

I'm certainly enjoying the lens, Trish. Thanks.

I'm not all that big into hockey myself, Diane. Thanks for commenting.

No coconut, Laurel, I'm sorry. Thanks for stopping by with a comment.

It's lots of fun, isn't it Eva. I'm always on the look-out for things to try photographing now.

Thanks Paulita.

It was definitely yummy, Kay and gautami. Thanks for stopping in with a comment.

All I know, Susan is what I've figured out for myself, and I'm constantly learning how little that is. I probably need to take a class or two myself.

I definitely agree Cheryl. Thanks for stopping in with a comment.

Thanks Alyce and Lisa and Irene.
