This is one of my assignments this weekend. To do some yard maintenance. (Have I mentioned how much I hate digging in the dirt?)
I WILL plant my sunflower seeds tomorrow. I decided that of I waited until I dug some new flower beds it was never going to happen - so I saw these planter boxes and had an AHA moment. I suppose it is kind of like cheating but WHATEVER! Its not like the seeds are likely to grow anyway :)
And i haven't had a chance to fill you in on the photography class from Tuesday night. Well, I've been too busy eating! Lol My first meal without braces was a huge spinach salad with lots of sunflower seeds, followed by a Wunderbar. Tomorrow night a big thick bbq steak is on the menu.
Back to the class - there are 4 of us in the early group. And one of them is our very own hooker Deanne so there were lots of laughs. We spent the first lessson learning about all the settings for aperture, ISO, shutter speed etc. She wants us to learn to shoot manual - not with the easy auto settings.
In between laughing we asked about 1000 questions. And when we left she gave us homework for next week. We have to shoot something we love and then we will get critiqued. I still haven't figured out what I am going to choose but tomorrow morning I'm hitting the road to tackle this homework.
Tonight I just practiced a little, trying to remember what all those different numbers mean. There are so many things I love it is hard to pick just one. Lilacs are out - I love those
And I love walking around cemetaries and taking photos. This lone cross caught my eye tonight.
