I’m disappointed with myself for skipping so many days so soon. But it’s time to get back into it with this rainbow right outside my front door. I could see the sun shining brightly and plenty of rain striking the pond out back, so I knew one had to be lurking around somewhere. Something I’m going to have to look into is the fact that my camera won’t take a picture if it doesn’t have a focus on anything. That’s great when I’m trying to find the minimum focus distance on a close-up, but not so great when I’m trying to photograph light.

Water flowing through a fountain. Tried a variety of shots at various shutter speeds, but I like the blurring on this one.

I would have preferred the tip of the flower to have remained in focus as well. Those little flying critters just don’t give you a whole lot of time to work with.

The next batch of pictures will be coming from my friend’s garden. We spent about a half an hour out there, photographing, until the threat of rain and the sting of mosquitoes drove us indoors for the remainder of the evening.

Detroit seems so far away, yet from the southern edge of Harsen’s Island, it doesn’t seem that far away at all.
