Playing with the Camera

We have had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend sitting on our duff doing absolutely nothing.  It's been quite enjoyable!

My Christmas Cactus bloomed, much to my surprise.  I almost killed this thing five years ago so I tossed it outside during the summer and promptly forgot about it.  I thought the heat would kill it but it thrived.

I brought it in before the first freeze that year and it bloomed. 

That's been my plan of care every year since.  Every year it blooms and every year I'm amazed.

I was playing around with some of the settings on my camera including the manual focus.  I used my blooming cactus as a subject.

Take a look at these beauties!




Don't be too impressed. . . for every great photo there were a dozen not so great/needed to be deleted photo.  I'm thrilled to have gotten these, though!

Happy Thanksgiving!
