This morning we stopped over at my neighbor's yard. She handpicked K-9 a yellow tomato and as you can see, he brought it home. He kept it in his mouth, skin unbroken, until I asked him to drop it. I then cut it up for he and Zephyr to share.

Check out this antenna - quite the fashion statement! I used my 60mm and flash on this picture AV mode 3.5 -1.1/2 stop exposure on the flash.

If this isn't cool on a hot summer day. I put my flash into the mode where the shutter stays open and it fires the flash. My settings were 1/128 8 12 HZ on .8 second exposure F8 ISO400. I want to remember those for the future. I changed the DPP RAW esposure from regular to linear to get the two totally different looks.

My grape vines have been growing for 4 years now. This is the first year that I they produced. One of the vines put out about 10 of these clusters. The grapes were sweet and the skins were a bit tart. I used my 60mm lens and my flash. I set the camera to M and used 1/30 & F10 with a -1 flash exposure compensation.

It rained 3 inches yesterday. It was so steamy this morning that we could hardly see where we were walking. When I got home, I noticed that my plants were just covered with water droplets. I got out my tripod and macro lens. I'm starting to see what a radical difference using a tripod can make. It is wonderful!
