Can you stand another flower close-up? They’re all over the internet, flickr in particular. I apologize if it’s just another yawner for you, but it seemed the best way to broadcast my happy news: I have graduated from a point-n-shoot and am now the proud owner of a digital/SLR camera! Impatient, I bypassed the instruction manual and just started capturing some of my sister-in-law’s gorgeous garden. Rich color and fantastic clarity are now possible.
But now, 34 photos later, after satiating that initial new-toy excitement, I’m ready to kick back a notch and read up on how to achieve the best results. Allelujah! There’s no stopping me now!

Thank you everyone. Glad to see I haven’t bored anyone!
Lisa, Your first flower made me gasp–has Georgia O’Keefe been reincarnated? The beauty, positioning and color are breathtaking.
Oooh, that is great. And my favorite way to learn too!
Photos of flowers are never yawners for me! Congrats on the new baby — your spiffy Nikon! Oooh, are those poppies I see? I’ve got to plant some. I still have plenty of space in my garden, although I planted a coreopsis and two little blue-violet plants whose name I forget but that look like heather. Color! Don’t we love it!
