2013—Day 115—Blue

This morning, the exquisite photo of a water drop on a willow branch by a fellow photography blogger, Blue Girl Photography inspired me to pick up my camera and take some shots of the blue star creeper that competes (with my approval) with the grass in the backyard. The few flowers remaining of what was a few years ago a lush carpet of blue stars were sprinkled with water drops so I found myself sprawling on the damp grass in my bathrobe, my camera at a snail’s eye view, shooting the stars (pun intended). This shot was my favorite and it is cropped.

It is all I can do to keep myself from reshooting this scene because I just realized that I forgot to reset the ISO to 100 after shooting Bobo inside last night. The ISO is set to 320, well outside my comfort zone, even though I’m finding myself often using 1000 and up when I shoot inside at Mo’s. Fortunately, there doesn’t seem to be too much noise or I’d be back out there again, despite the rapidly changing light. What is wrong with me????
