So... here are some pictures from this evening. Some were taken with manual focusing so they're a little blurry. I find that my lens limits how close I can get to something, which is frustrating. I've been pondering investing in another lens, but it's an expensive investment. Sigh... someday.
If you really want to see some great photos, though, you should go here . These pictures are by the guy who lives in the basement apartment of the house we're renting. I am definitely picking his brain for info! Of course, he says that he does spend a lot of time in Photoshop which is another level for me that is not as appealing as just taking the pictures. There are plenty of inspiring pictures on the whole 500px.com website, though.
