What a great My Town Friday Shoot-out. This week’s participants really outdid themselves. Everyone had more than one photo making my job extra hard. First to choose just one from each then to try and post 5 or six of those. We seemed to have an equal division of Foreign Lands, Home Country and Family spots. Camillo just rolled his eyes back into his head as I talked about the cool places I’d like add to our vacation list.
I gave up trying to be impartial – I hope you enjoy the slideshow featuring one photo from each of us….
I am already looking forward to next week’s My Town in Black and White.
If you missed Rebecca’s tutorial backtrack back to Tutorial- Shallow Depth of Field and read all the way through from start to finish, I am sure you will find a few gems of information that will help improve you photography….. I know I did. I think I need a new camera. (Camillo are you listening?)

Non-zoom lenses can open wider that f/2.8.
If your camera has it,
