mushroom hunting last weekend - frank's perfect family outing - lots of fresh air, can take the dog, doesn't cost a penny.
most of the time i leave my 50mm lens on my camera, occasionally when we're outside I put the chunky zoom on. it's a lot more trial and error getting the settings right - especially in constantly changing light and shade, but when i do i'm amazed by the clarity and vibrancy of colour it provides. these are all straight out of camera - no editing, no actions.
oh and we did find some mushrooms. well - tiny toadstools but they might as well have been made of gold such was phoebe's excitement. and yes we did stop her from touching them!
