Dan got me a SLR camera and I love it! It can do so many amazing things, but if you read any of my previous posts, I don't like reading instruction booklets. Which causes me to get super frustrated when pictures don't turn out the way I expect them to. I love the artistic look of having the background blurry or detailed closeups. Here are some pics I took trying out my camera on flowers from our garden. I also made a modified terrarium for our dining room table. Modified, meaning it does not have a lid. Would that make it a dish garden? Either way, it's pretty cute.
