Emily and I reflected in the glass of a building

What a fab reflection of one building and the pedestrian bridge in the windows of the building opposite.

Same building but I rather liked the reflection of the bus as well.

Different buliding but I loved the distortion of the buildings reflected in in. Also love the contrast betweent the modern glass building and the traditional buildings reflected in it.

Again loved the contrast between old and new-the modern pedestrian bridge cutting across the old buildings reflected in the modern building.

And finally, loved this urban style picture of Emily- the cars reflected in the windows and the hint of the old buildings across the street.

Here are some pictures I took today experimenting with the Aperture setting on my camera. Well I wasn't really experimenting cause that implies I knew what i was doing, and I didn't. Also it was raining and the family was in a hurry to get back to the car, so I didn't have time to think about what I was doing. Anyway, the first three have that nice blurry background. The purple thistle is a bit out of focus because it was moving in the wind. I like the thistles silhouetted against the sky too. I will take some more photos during the week, hopefully really concentrating on what I am doing.

F stops and shutter speed

So this blog is where I am going to record my photographic journey- it is where I will post all my experimenting in an effort to get to grips with my DSLR- a pentax K100
