The house is quiet, everything is back to normal and I'm sighing a HUGE sigh of relief. Nevermind that I can't smell or taste for anything, honestly what is up with this virus? I go a day or two where I'm fine, then the next two days I can't smell or taste and then fine again....ridiculous circle of nosiness *snicker*
But with everyone back at school and work, my house spotless and the weather nice and warm today, I stepped outdoors with my new camera in hand. Remember I said I didn't want to learn any new tricks, I was fine with it just taking photos? I lied....shame on me. The more I mess with it and the more I learn about all the weird fru fru terms, like ISO and Aperture and Shutter Speeds, the more I realize that I want to learn and I want to change the settings. If you only realized the potential of the amazing shots you can get by changing one simple number here and there....well....let's just say there would be so many Professional Photographers out there LOL
I'll explain all about ISO another time, but for now, let's just revel in the beauty of nature, the beauty that God has bestowed upon us, always there at our fingertips and it doesn't take airplane tickets or expensive trips to see it, it's all in your backyard. Go on, get out of the house and go look at what He has left for you today, I know I breathed a big deep breath and feel completely refreshed and ready for the day.
Oh before I forget though, some of you wanted the link to the Pork Chops recipe, here you go. I can't believe you don't know where my food blog is yet. Tsk Tsk Tsk Tsk! *snort*
And Bonnie, I didn't forget the tour of my home, I'll have it up this week, I just need to get hubby out of the house during the day, which is hard because he works nights LOL
Just quickly so you can see....this was taken with an ISO of 100....see how clear and crisp it looks?
This was an ISO of 3200, look at all the noise and grain?
Like I said I'll explain it all later....right now I'm going to sit down with my Grilled Ranch Chicken Sandwich and my glass of Iced Tea and enjoy General Hospital.
