I recently joined two fabulous photographers for a photo walk at Tower Hill Botanical Gardens in Boylston, MA. The botanical gardens are just waking up from a long cold winter and the daffodils were in full bloom. The gardens have two greenhouses on site L’Orangerie and the Limonaia House. My photography companions were.

I had done photography for many years starting in middle school. I was a black and white girl. Even on paper I was a pen and ink person because what I see best are shadows and shapes. Colour freaks me out a bit. It’s so complicated. I’ve been using my digital camera for many years, but I have not made any attempt to go beyond point and shoot. Recently, though I went to Blog Beautiful from Blog Better Boston and learned a bit more about my camera thanks to Third Eye Chic and Hogger & Co.
My goal for this photo walk was to play a little with Shutter speed priority (S) and Aperture priority (A) on my Nikon camera. Here are a few of my favourites. I wish my focus was a little better on most of them and the very bright light was both a blessing and a curse.
