Happy July 4th

I had envisioned my July 4th post to be full of pictures of red, white and blue flags billowing in the sea breeze, but somehow the flags, my camera, and me were never in the same place at the same time, so instead I have pictures of Joshua and his Play-Doh!

Altho it's not the set of photos I had imagined I was rather pleased with myself as I took these pictures in a setting other than 'auto'! Wow, I've had my DSLR for over a year and it's the first time EVER that I've done that. I was looking for the blurred background affect, so went for a small F Stop. My camera let me go down to F4.5. The results aren't exactly what I was expecting but I think the pictures are cute anyway...

Happy birthday America!
