Another year is ending and who knows what the year ahead will bring. It has certainly been a very strange couple of years.
We have seen the best of people and we have seen the worse. We have seen many selfless people and we have seen many selfish people all over the world. It does make you wonder how on earth humankind ever got through previous disasters that hit.
My approach was to do what I was told and stay home, which is exactly what I did. Now with Omicron making its way around the world our leader, if you can call him that, is saying that we should all take personal responsibility. I mean I don’t even get what that means. We know that people, if not told what to do, will do whatever they like. Omicron will still kill people, maybe not as many, but I don’t want to be responsible for passing it onto someone and then them dying.
Dave and I have decided to put ourselves into lockdown and stay away from others as much as we can. Though we do have to go out soon and get our booster shot.
Flowers with the Tamron Lens
Anyway, I thought I could end the year, in much the same way I started it, with some macro photos. Though these are not real macro photos, in that they weren’t taken with a macro lens. While I was away with the Tamron 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di III-A VC VXD lens I also wanted to see what it was like with close-ups of flowers and such that we found.
I have prepared some for you to see, so take a look at the gallery. I will end it here and just wanted to say thank you so much to all of you who have followed along with my blog. I know I have been a bit all of the place, but I’m trying to get back into blogging and sharing my world with you.
Happy New Year
All the best for the year ahead, let’s hope it is better than 2021.
