Since I last visited Debbie’s Pomegranate Tree, she’s had several more fruit appear. This one is looking more like what you’d  expect.

Debbie has more than green grass… she has a green thumb.

I am still grappling with the extra settings on the new camera and don’t feel like I’m taking the pictures that I want to be taking.  I post these more or less as a personal marker as I believe I will improve.  You’d be surprised how many times I have the background in focus and the foreground a blur… whereas I know how to use the Macro setting on the old camera, it’s a bit trickier when you add in aperture priority.  My biggest mistake, I think, that I made in these photos, which I took six days ago, is that I didn’t use the zoom to help isolate the photo.  Then again, it is rather cramped at Deb’s place and I couldn’t really step back to zoom in, if that makes sense.

I’ll try again when the Pomegranate ripens.  I have never seen one of these growing before, have you?
