One Hundred Today


I continue to discover new things about my digital camera. The latest is to press the little flower icon and just like that I have supercloseup ability. I have several agapanthus in my front yard. They are all either a simple pale green pod, or like this one shown, just breaking out to unfold its blue beauty to the world. What a wonderful way to celebrate my 100th blog entry. This unfurling beauty is how I feel inside everytime I sit down here, pick up my camera, create a new collage, or explore the possibilities of knitting and working with fabric.

The close-ups are always so precious when you get them just right-like this one. Congrats on the 100th. I remember when you first began. This is so neat.

Nice shot Annie! My agapanthus just started popping open two days ago also, must be that time around here. Glad you are exploring your camera's macro settings, they are great fun and addictive shots to make IMO. And 100 blog entries, that's great! I'll be eagerly reading the next hundred. :)

I just relearned about the flower icon on my camera also and used it for the first time today. In the past to get a good flower photo I'd stand farther back and zoom in so that the flower was in focus and the bg was blurry.... But now I can use the little flower symbol..... Congratulations on your 100th post!

Happy happy cententry! (I just made that word up, so if it really means something else, it's an honest mistake).
