I Heart Macro. I know mom and I have been pretty silent on the blogging front this week but we have a good excuse, we were prepping for a three day show this weekend. I will be posting more about it tomorrow, maybe.
So, on with the fun of pictures:
I wanted to give you a heads up about two giveaways that I just found out about:
Pretty Things: To celebrate Golem Beads she has an earring pair that she is giving away. Head on over to her blog and you need to leave your name in the comments to participate. The drawing will be August 6th.
Humble Beads: In her words, "Big Huge Giveaway - that's the BHG!" Just head to her blog and see how you can enter her "Big Huge Giveaway!".

I found this photographer on the last day of the fair and I am so glad I did. I love his pieces and just couldn't pass them by.
His name is Brian Kainulainen, fine art photography. His website is www.bwanaoline.com and he does have a Facebook page. Needless to say I am going to be liking him on Facebook. The one thing I forgot to ask to see if he does old rusted cars. I love me some photographs of old rusted cars.
This piece I bought mom. I thought what this artist did was really interesting and I wanted to go with something new for mom too.
The artist name is Teresa Moorehouse Howley, www.teresahowley, and she does "Narrative Sculpture & Storytelling." It is cold casting in bronze and I loved her pieces. I had to be good and only buy one but I am hoping she is at the fair next year too.
If you have lasted this far I will show you the shots I have for this week's I Heart Macro. Now, you have Lisa to thank for these photos because I was totally oblivious to our surroundings because I was having too much fun people watching, so thanks Lisa!!!
This was your teaser shot and this is what the shot is:
|A fire hydrant - I guess they paint them and then the paint starts to come|
off and gives the hydrant an awesome texture
|Another shot of this hydrant|
So, if you lasted this long you deserve a medal.
I Heart Macro and see what other people are posting today.
