I gave at least a pound of flesh to a killer swarm of black flies that did their damage on any exposed skin.
As you know I am taking a beginner photography class. Each week we are given an assignment. This week we are supposed to shoot something interesting about a door. But tonight I just wanted to play. One of the goals of this class is to teach us to use our manual settings as opposed to the easy automatic settings. We are learning to adjust the shutter speed, ISO, aperture etc. This was stressful for me in the beginning. Tonight I thought I would just use the auto settings. Well after about 6 shots I thought "Gee, this isn't as much fun". So I went back to the manual settings. You have more control and get crisper shots.
The LUPINS are out in full force on the Tyndal Road. I love them so I braved the black flies (AKA no-see-ems) and took about 94 different shots.
Don't panic - I'm not going to show you all of them but here is a sampling.
