I took 450 pictures and these the only ones that turned out half way decent.
I have a point and shoot camera and I did try a few settings today other than auto...but most just did not turn out well.
Someday maybe I will get the itch to buy an expensive camera and then take some classes on how to use it.
When you have an opportunity to go somewhere as beautiful as our gardens this time of year, beautiful photos would be great. I have a feeling though...that even with a great camera, lighting and many other things factor into how well the photo turns out.
The azaleas are at their peak right now. I have tried a couple of times to grow them but have never had any luck with them.
I didn't see what type of tree this was, but the limbs dip down to the ground and curve up and from many angles it would make a very interesting photo. It was really crowded there today and photo taking was a challenge because so many people either were trying to take photos themselves or would be in the way of you getting one. I had to do a lot of cropping to get the few I have.
After the gardens we went to the mall to take a look at the new iPad. They are pretty impressive. I can see using one someday, but right now I would like a larger TV...maybe. It is after 10 pm now and Bob and Bobby are having a good time upstairs watching the Cardinals who I hear have just lost the game after 20 innings. It was scoreless into the 19th inning. The game started at 3 pm. What a bummer that they lost.....
