I was very brave this morning. I plucked up the courage to use manual focus. Blame Mieke. Anyway, it worked a treat. I used my new Nikon D3100 on auto at 50mm but with manual focus. Too easy! Flower in focus, background soft focus, all that cool stuff just like Mieke does. Oh, God, I feel soooo liberated! Isn’t it gorgeous? I think I deserve an award for that one. Oh, yes… it’s a frangipani. Do you think I could remember that name earlier? I knew it began with ‘f’ but the damn thing wouldn’t pop into my skull for ages. My garden, Taree Oz.
