I have been spending considerable time working with my camera in manual mode. It seems that I can get a shots that are closer to my old 35mm camera. I found a great guide to my Nikon D40 on the web. A gentleman, Ken Rockwell, has a site and now an ap on my iPhone that takes one through each setting on my camera. Every explanation is succinct and has exact pics of my camera so that I can work and practice in each mode.
These shots are from February when it seemed that we had snow every other day. Tiger can beat Sambo to the top of the willow, especially since Eddy cut them back in preparation for the spring. I wish that I could get a pic sometime of Sambo along side Maggie, our small black dog.....Sambo is approx. the same size!
Why You Have Come Here
If you have arrived here seeking sanctity or blessing, then you will have to provide your own cloak and dagger. I only confess to the daily struggle to treat the world with the respect it has earned in my estimation. We all look to the sky and wonder. I feel the whisper of the ages calling and know not what flutter or ripple calls true. My approach is to touch your life in only the manner in which you prefer. As we all must suffer at some time, then I feel we all deserve, also, the right to laugh. My smile is my weapon, and at times my words also I use to defend.
