You Capture - water

18 June 2010

Photography ......there is always soooooooo much left to learn.... seems that ..... just when I think I'm getting the hang of it.... I take a bunch of crappy shots and deflate myself again....I have discovered however..... that plants are a lot more patient and compliant than children!

This weeks assignment at 'I should be folding laundry' was 'Water' .... these were my 'captures'..


  1. I agree with you about there always being so much to learn, but your pictures are beautiful! I love water droplets, and the colors are great!

  2. Stunning shots of water. I love these!

  3. Mardi! They are beautiful! LOL! Maybe I should concentrate on photographing the plants too! hee hee..x

  4. I'm with you. Sometimes I think I'm taking great pictures and then...I realize I know nothing about it. ; P And then I do what you did: I go back to practicing depth of field and composition on things that stay put.

    I love your pictures! And I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way.
