In actuality, our stroll through the park only took one afternoon. With these monthly articles, however, it's taken three months to show you what we did. I guess that one of these days I should write another book so that you can sit down at one reading and absorb it...

I began my column last month by saying, "I really never know what to expect when I'm taking one of my classes on a field trip." Boy, is that the truth! Since I began this column a couple of weeks ago I've been on several more field trips, all of which have continued to...

Let's start with this picture of the two wedding rings resting on top of the bride's bouquet. I made it with the macro setting of my Canon 28-135mm zoom lens. I just placed the flowers down and carefully nestled the rings among them. I let the camera select its own...
