while i was waiting

I have been pretty excited about Melissa's camera class... how I would love to take beautiful photos... like the ones I admire all around blog-land! I have loved my macro setting on my little (broken) camera... but haven't been able to figure out the macro on this one... so I wanted to try again on some flowers. My own yard, while very green right now, is lacking in colorful blooms- so while I was waiting for my kiddos to arrive home from their summer trip, I headed over to Gran & Grandad's... where I knew Grandad had a bounty of flowers... right in the driveway where I was waiting!
Here is a little bit of show & tell...


I was having fun... although I'm still not sure I am doing it right... but as soon as I saw this...
my photo shoot was done!

Those are great shots Dawn. It is fun to play in the yard with the camera....Did you know the flowers in the third shot are IXORA's?
I almost used that as my X today for I have lots of them in the yard!

did you just take them with auto or did you eventually find the macro setting? they are lovely either way. glad you did a little experimenting.

so lush
and it is so creative that the van is framed in the greenery.
