Macro Monday Cars


Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign Mr Linky. Don't forget to visit each other. :)

  2. Oh, I'm going to tell. Cool pics. You should frame these for Tristan's room too! He would love them.

    And your ice cave photos are spectacular. Looks like an amazing place to be.

  4. Jeez. I had a comment sitting here waiting to be submitted and lost it. The comment I mean. My mind too probably.

    These are cool... they take me back to my own youth and Matchbox cars. Then Hot Wheels came along and raised the bar. Matchbox, of course, answered the bell, but it was a two horse race after that.

    You'd have liked the trip I took with Tonka yesterday. No macro shots, but lots of classic cars!

    I said: Great pictures, they are poster quality, they should be sold to decorate boys rooms! Love the Beetle, sentimental reasons!

  10. Great tiny cars...even if they look big! :-)

    Dear blogger friends!
    Could you help me?
    I wrote today on my main blog http://BLOGitse.blogspot.com about 'Error on page' when I try to comment.
    This morning I wanted to comment Jientje's Macros but she has (or I have!) that 'Error on page' problem and I can not send comments to her. And I couldn't find her email address to let her know/visit my blog.

    It's strange because I can see many other Blogger bloggers comments there. So, could this be only my problem?

    By the way, it says here like this: 'Done, but with errors on page'
    (but if I can send this then it should be ok, soon I'll see)

    Can anybody help me??? thaaanks!

  21. I loved playing with cars, too. When I helped clean out my nephews' (youngest is now 19) room (they are slobs) I pocketed a few of the coolest ones and keep them on my bookshelf. I love the angle and focus of the Beetle.

  22. Lisa : You have done wonders with those toys. Exquisite use of DOF.

  30. Oh my Gosh! I love this! My son is completely into Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars and when my husband got out his old collection, it was amazing to see them share their mutual love. And I have to tell you, the "old time" cars are so much better than the ones today! Cooler designs and moving parts. Love this post.

  31. My brother and sister and I all loved playing with Matchbox cars when we were little -- we even had this huge room size rug that imitated a small town rather well, with roads and streets and areas that we perceived to be properties. The imagination of children! Love your pics, Lisa, always fun to see what you've got posted! :)

  32. Cool hot rods. My mom is from WI and she loved playing with little cars too!

  33. I used to love cars too Lisa!! These are particularly nice pictures! I think they would look rather nice framed in Tristan's room!! Matchbox used to make some cool ones, but I haven't played with them in a very long time! Ha!

  34. Those are way cool:D
    Lovely shots and great dof.
    And no, I won't say a thing!

  35. Awesome pictures. I agree with the person who said they are poster quality. I'm going to have to try something similar while I still have my friend's macro lens.

    I know I've probably asked this before, but what camera and lens did you use for these shots?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, and did you use natural light?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Pssst - I loved playing with cars too! I had quite the Matchbox collection!

    I wanna play Macro Monday!!! Yep, I think I should...
