A visit to the Chicago Botanic Garden on a gorgeous Saturday yielded some nice shots, and I got a chance to play with the little point-and-shoot in a natural environment. Though in past visits to the Garden, the birds were generously cooperative, they were less so this time.
I heard them, oh, did I hear them, but I couldn’t spot them. I don’t think I’d make a good birder.
Though I enjoy trying to find them. Except when I don’t. Find them, that is.
Gardens are beautiful places, but they also have their mystery, with dark little corners, curious animals, spots for hiding. They can be a great source of writing inspiration, though for me, on this particular trip, no sparks were sparked. But there’s always the possibility of looking back at the photos and seeing something in them you didn’t see before.
Oh formatting. Sorry, I can never get the photos to go where I want them.
And now for some of the pictures from the little camera. I played with the single color function again, and found the results really interesting.
