I am a hands on visual learner.
It's hard for me to discipline myself to sit down and carefully read instruction manuals.
I just want to say, "show me and then let me try!"

This week's photos are my attempts at shooting against an all white and an all black background.

I love how this photo of a potted grocery store mini rose bush against the white background turned out.
To my eye not everything looks great against a black background.
The roses against a black background just seemed off to me.
But the starkness of the salt against the black is stunning, in my opinion,
and it gave me some fresh insight into the spiritual admonition that we are the salt of the earth.
Current events sure seem dark.
I want my life to a beautiful contrast to that darkness,
not because of myself, but because of Christ in my life.

The inside of this tulip is so beautiful, isn't it?
The details and veining of the tulip petals also caught my eye.

I just want to thank all of the much more experienced photographers who stop in here
and encourage me each week! It means a lot to me.
