Flower Power

I am glad that what appears to be my favorite subject, flowers, are back. I wouldn’t have guessed that when I first got my camera, but judging by the number of pictures I have taken, it seems to be a close second to pictures of my kids.

I currently have this one as my background at work:


This was growing in my grass in the front yard. I take lots of pictures from my yard, or the neighbors when I go out for walks by myself or with the girls. It is hard to get landscapes in the south end of Minneapolis, but flowers… we got plenty.

I am also happy with the 50mm f1.8 I got. I wasn’t sure if I would like it, not being able to auto focus. I am getting better at it, having finally adjusted the diopter on my camera correctly for me. I especially love the bokeh that I can get with it when I take pictures of flowers.

  1. What about ducks? 🙂 Glad to see you are back to blogging. Did you look to migrating any of your old s9y enteries?

  2. I decided that the old entries were not that important to me. I am sure that I could export them by RSS, or write a conversion piece for WordPress, but they are all 1.5 years or more old now.

  3. One would think that wordpress could just pull an rss but I haven’t been able to figure that one out yet. Again glad to see your voice out in the blogosphere again.

  4. Steve, if you are logged in as Admin, under Manage, there is a Import menu item. You can import via RSS from here. I just didn’t want to bother with all the old posts.
