I'm a convert!!

Why has it taken me so long to pull my finger out and try a few of the different settings on my camera.......pure laziness. After seeing what a wonderful weekend Pip and Marianne had at their photography course and the instant improvement in the quality of their photos I thought I'd give it a go.... earlier this morning after the kids had been trucked off to school this is what I came up with......
Full Auto
My Aperture Setting
Manual
This next one is of a Paper Wasp Nest.......there weren't any wasps around so I thought it would be OK.
Full Auto
My Aperture setting
Manual
This next one is of an agapanthus in my pitiful garden.....the third picture was done on Manual and went really dark....don't know why, I guess I'll figure it out as I practice more.

So there you have it.....I hope it didn't bore you too much.
I'm about to embark on a "Get rid of the CRAP" expedition in Megan's room, I've been wanting to do this for a while now but the thought of sifting through all that stuff was too much to bear and it was just easier to shut the door. I hate clutter it drives me mad and Megan's room is full of it, I don't know why but she hoards everything from seeds she found under a tree at school to a chook feather she thought was interesting......Oh and every single little piece of paper she ever scribbled on ( I will keep the good ones I'm not that mean ).
So I bid you all farewell my friends and hope to see you on the other side..........clutter free I hope!!

Hi Brenda, the photo's look great - it really does make a difference! I have done the photo challenge - the 6th photo etc, mine was 2006 how freaky. Have a good week.
