Two Wonderful Tips

Hey, I just learned a new trick....well, 2 new tricks...



Trick Number 1: Use a dolly to move the Big Blue Jar & staggering about the garden clutching one's back might not be a Required Thing...the BBJ previously resided on the other side of the courtyard and for some reason I decided It Simply Had to Move This Morning...I'm hopin' Mr G doesn't notice that I've done this thing or else I'll get a Lecture...


The other tip I have to share is (and I'm VERY EXCITED about this one) for photo-taking challenged souls like myself who hate using a flash, but cannot manage a non-blurry photograph without one...or a tripod...or both...

Drumroll, please...


Try putting your finger over the flash! hah hah! take that, Blurry Photography...


I have gotten better about the whole LSD Experience photography thing* since ME over at Those Northern Skies told me she had to practice and practice to be able to hold still enough to get a stable shot while not using a flash...but this tip is for when I hold my breath, try not to even have a pulse, and still get a crummy blurry photograph...

*Disclaimer: Have never done (proper verb "used"?) LSD, but have often experienced LSD "effects" done by TV producers...lots of blurry, moving, colourful swirlies, right?

You probably deserve a talking too, don't you. ;)

Oh! I am going to try the finger/hand over the flash idea... thanks so much! I am always looking for ways to take better pictures, especially when it comes to that harsh flash light! Blessings, Debra

I love your Big Blue Jar - what a fabulous colour it is. From all the seed packets it looks like you are really gearing up for this year's gardening exploits - you're certainly going to be busy:)
