Point and Shoot
It occurs to me that blogging will have two additional bonuses; my writing might improve and so might my photography.
I used to shoot with my 35mm Olympus. I knew what I was doing. The digital camera that I now use is a Fuji S5000. Seriously, the primary reason I got this particular camera is that it looked and felt like a 35 mm camera. I thought the transition to digital would be easier.
The truth is I don't really know how to use this camera to it's full advantage....and to take that a step further....I haven't spent any time trying. I have been content to use it much like a point and shoot experience.
I don't have any expectations that I am going to morph into a great garden photographer (or writer)....but I want to learn to take closeups of garden vignettes that aren't blurry.
I am pretty sure I can accomplish that much! In the meantime, you are going to get to see some pretty basic shots that are pretty to my eye (and maybe yours).
Here for your enjoyment are the point and shoot shots from the back and side doors of my house this morning and from a walk in the neighborhood.;-)
Please note i added photos later in day.
