The grass is always greener and the flowers are always more colorful on the other side (of the mountain). You think that’s just a whiny statement from a beach girl wannabe, but now you can judge for yourself.
Here is the bouquet right from our friend’s yard.
Here’s just one of the flowers. I loved the shadows. I was experimenting using my 70-300 lens, which gives me fits.
I was also trying to take spider webs. If I put the button on auto focus, the camera focused perfectly until I snapped the picture, then the instant BEFORE the picture registered, the focus went out of focus, and I got blurry spiders.
If I tried to manually focus the picture, I got a splotch of light which quickly evaporated once I moved the lens a half a millimeter.
Finally I found a way to trick the camera into doing something like I wanted. I auto focused it, then I switched to manual, and snapped the picture. GOTCHA CANON REBEL XTi! HAHA!
So tomorrow I’ll show the you the unique homes I found, just in a few short blocks.
