Can't hold me back

After attending Jenna's first birthday party (as a guest) we went out to eat with two other couples and their children at Jason's Deli. During dinner it was stormy and rainy outside. Luckily when we were ready to leave it let up and we had a brief bit of sunshine. I noticed how the clouds were fighting to keep the sun away and wanted to take a picture of it. I only had one lens and nothing else with me. I pulled out my camera and when I looked through the view finder I noticed it didn't look like I thought it did, the exposure was off and there were too many hot spots and there was nothing I could do to correct it. It took me a minute to realize that I needed my polarize filter but I didn't have it with me. What was I going to do, miss this wonderful sight? I realized my sunglasses were polarized and that if I held them in front of the lens I would get the desired effect. This is what turned out.

Can you see me, now?

I didn't even notice this guy until I saw him move. I moved around so
that he wouldn't blend into the grass behind and captured this.

The latest addition to my equipment was a $6 metal ring that allows
me to get a magnification of 1.4x by attaching a lens backwards.
This was the first picture that I took,
it is the lid to my Juice Press smoothie.
