pretty pink tulips

on Saturday after the Market I took a few more photos besides the Chief Commanda II…some of them were of the lovely tulips along the water front.  It was a warm sunny day on Saturday, since then the warmth and sun have been simply a memory…as we get further into summer here I’m hoping to be able to take more shots of flowers…I don’t have any in my yard right now as the landscaping is being done…I don’t have much of a green thumb so it will be simple, with flowers that grow like weeds!

  2. I like the close cropping you did on photo number 2. There is a saying by a prominent photographer Robert Capa – “If Your Pictures Aren’t Good Enough, You’re Not Close Enough”. I think that is one of the main challenges for us photographers. The mind’s eye sees things differently compared to the camera. As photographers, we need to see how the camera sees the scene and not trust the magnification due to the eye-brain interaction.

    • Thanks Mark…a great saying from Robert Capa…that is something I’ve learned in the short time I’ve been taking photos…I’ve a Nikon D3000, 18-55 lens that came with the camera, at the moment I’m trying to use it to the fullest capabilities of the lens… another photographer suggested that I learn to take descent shots with this lens before upgrading to something like a 18-250 lens. that is what I’m trying to do but I find I can’t do distance or close ups as well as I’d like. So I’ll keep working on it…
