I haven't been posting for a while now - getting online (or even near a computer) has taken backseat to having (and adjusting to having) a baby! It's crazy how much time everything takes. But we're starting to get the hang of it - it's been a challenge, but incredibly rewarding. ;)

As +bella bat's due date approaches, we've been putting the finishing touches on the nursery. I thought the ladybug balloons floating above the changing table add some excitement/festivity to the room as a whole.

I've been running in several directions at once lately, and am a little behind in my posts. This is the last in a series of spinning top child's toys. The top is lined with colorful LEDs, which make fun patterns with a slow shutter.

Thanks, +Gemma Costa! I wasn't sure how the shots would turn out - each shot was drastically different, since the top would spin in any given direction. But there were several that ended up with fun patterns and colors.

Happy Leap Day! I convinced my brother to jump into the lake for this shot - I definitely got the better end of that deal! We've had a warm winter, but it was still 40 degrees with a high wind, and the water in February was pretty miserably cold. ;)

How fun for you guys! Looks like you all get along well. My bro must be a bit lonely--he only has sisters...

+bella bat has always admired this tree, which we pass on the way to Topeka. The grey day actually helped bring out the colors in the field, and made a nice backdrop for the mottled tree.

Thanks, +Shannon S. Myers! I was glad to finally have time to stop to take this picture - we'd been meaning to for over a year now. ;)

Someone moved this little cactus to the window for some afternoon sun, where I found it over my lunch break. It was gone shortly afterward, apparently making just long enough of an appearance to be immortalized in my creative endeavors. ;)

Thanks, +Christina Lihani! The cacti did look pretty happy sitting in the window sill. ;)

Thanks for the +1s, +May Raja and +Dick Meurs! This was part of my (led-lit) spinning top series. I ended up with some fun patterns - this one I just cropped a bit, and bumped up the saturation, which made for some pretty colors. ;)

I got an extension tube a little bit ago, and took my first macro picture tonight!

This is actually a tiny flower - I couldn't believe how close I could get! I ended up backing up a bit, to give a bit more perspectivet. I also had a lot of fun playing with the DOF, which I'd read was incredibly shallow, but reading and seeing are two different things. ;)

I don't have a light box, and was more concerned with lighting the flower than the background, which is why the background is a little dull. But I had enough fun that I may make a light box for more shots like this one. ;)

I convinced Nathaniel to "Leap" into Clinton Lake on February 25th in preparation for my "Leap Day" Creative 366 shot. I thought these were all fun shots, as they captured the silliness of it all. (Overall, I think it was more fun for Ben and I, since we didn't have to jump into winter-temperature water. ;) )

Another starry night over Pomona Lake. I liked the light reflections across the lake - they give size to the lake in the foreground, which in turn gives perspective to the vastness of the sky overhead.

Story
Introduction
I'm a software engineer for Garmin, which funds my many hobbies.  Chief among them are photography, sailing, and brewing.

About my avatar: It's been suggested that your avatar is how people remember you when they only know you through social networking sites like g+.  That said, it can be an important image.  My brothers and I all worked together to design the tattoo. Wilson is obviously my last name, and the crest underneath has actually been associated with my family.  The blue V is the Roman numeral 5, for the 5 boys in the family.   Each of our tattoos have different yellow symbols indicating birth order - mine means "first born."  I chose to use my tattoo as my avatar because it's unique to me, while still providing some measure of anonymity.
