To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

And do check out my How-To and Birding pages as well.

Day 112 - Survivor

This tiny bug is a real survivor because it survived a massive thunderstorm.   I was amazed at how this little thing just stayed on the side of my balcony railing while the storm raged and the rains came down in buckets.  The skies had darkened to almost dusk conditions during this storm and I had to use the highest ISO to get a shot.  But even then, it wasn't good enough, and I was worried my camera was getting soaked to stay out on the balcony much longer to try other things.  I should have used my elements cover on the camera, but I was afraid I'd lose the bug if I stepped away.


  1. Thanks, Kristy! Not the best quality, but I guess it'll have to do for this time.
