garden | roses galore
the day we visited the new york botanical garden, which we seem to do when we don't know what to do, everything was in bloom. it was a sunny day and the bright mid-day light can be harsh, but there were no other options. flowers don't wait for perfect lighting.
i honestly thought i had a terrible day when it came to picture-taking. i just couldn't get my camera settings right and wouldn't be surprised if all of these photos were shot on automatic and at this moment i don't care.
many people preach to only use your camera on manual and it is good to know what all the dials mean. but, you know what? sometimes, you just need a little jump start from the computer within the camera instead of the one within your head, especially if you're with someone else who is waiting, patiently.
ps have you seen l'atelier's iphone photos? they are fantastic!
