i've made a commitment to myself to learn how to really learn the manual settings of my DSLR. so far, i've been using the auto modes, which are great. there are so many settings to work with (depth of field, macro, etc.) but we did spend more $$ so I could have the manual options.

i just walked around outside and chose random flowers/plants. let me know what you think, good or bad, i need all the help i can get!

(aren't these the funkiest little flowers? we have a huge tree out back and these are blooming on it)

oh and this one, just because its what i think of when I think "4th of July". independence day is grilled hotdogs, smoke bombs and sparklers!


  1. Love the smoke bombs! I too got a camera with manual setting that I am trying to learn - it is not as easy as some people make it appear!

  2. Absolutely amazing - much clearer, much better! You are the best!

  3. You're doing a fantastic job!
