SUMMARY: Where the wild flower-things are.Yesterday morning, I took only my little point-and-shoot camera and my dogs, expecting to do a brisk solo hike and to not see many wildflowers. Instead--tons of wildflowers and almost no hiking because I stopped constantly to take photos. And such a beautiful day! Dogs were a little bored but hike was uphill so they got a little workout.
I discovered that there are still lots of things that I don't know about the camera--that is, that I don't remember from one read-through of the user guide. How to set the exposure time in manual mode. How to pick a fixed focus spot instead of letting it pick its own. How to see what aperture and time it's picking before I take the shot.
Meanwhile--if you like puppies and poppies--the couple dozen photos that turned out ok are here.
