The problem with having friends with fancy cameras and oodles of technical knowledge is that pretty soon you start feeling like you can't take pictures anymore unless you have an SLR and know all about f-stops. You put away your insignificant little consumer camera and start dreaming of all the pictures you will take one day with your canon rebel... all the while forgetting that actually, you really just love taking pictures. So I dusted off my camera that had been shunned into the deep recesses of my bag and took a stroll around the garden for some digital macro downtime.
* This post, in a way, is for my grandfather. He loved being outside, being in his garden and used to walk around taking pictures of the things he grew, and today I found myself doing the same. I wonder what he would have thought of photoediting :)
