Summer Flowers

Finally, Chicago Botanic Garden.  If not for a friend who's going home soon, we wouldn't have come to this beautiful place.  And I love macro shots, so this was the perfect opportunity.  I mostly used our Canon S100 p&s, and I couldn't be happier.

Who says only SLRs can take great photos? :-)

    Tama, it's not always about the camera. As long as you have an artistic eye and an eye for detail, khit point and shoot pa yan, maganda kakalabasan :)
