What happened was, last Monday (in Canada Victoria Day, a holiday) the sun finally came out after some weeks of miserable weather; at almost the same instant I discovered that the Pentax zoom lens I’ve been mostly shooting with for months in fact has auto-focus. I’d not previously missed it, but then I hadn’t known that DSLR auto-focus isn’t like the pocket camera’s, it’s fast, a tiny fraction of a second, much faster than I can do by hand, and apparently about as good.
Anyhow I went nuts and took a hundred or so shots, those blueberries from a couple of days ago and now a mini-festival of whiteness.
First we have two young blossoms of our Mme. Alfred Carrière, not our flashiest rose but with a divine scent. The second shot here is one of my favorites.
This is not just a mock-orange but a Native Mock Orange, nice flowers but also handsome foliage and vigorous too, needs cutting back on a regular basis, I’d recommend it as a shrub to anyone.
