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
