Summer Fun!
Summer Fun, 6/22/08

This morning it was dreary and raining – a perfect day for a little reading. I read the chapter on panning in Bryan Peterson’s new book, Understanding Shutter Speed. Later though, it turned out to be a beautiful day so I headed for the Rose Garden. The roses are in full bloom and just gorgeous right now.

This young brother and sister were having a great time riding their bikes around the fountain I decided to take the opportunity to try my hand at panning. Unfortunately, just as I was starting to get the hang of it, they took a spill and that was the end of all of our fun. Thankfully, they were both fine.

This was the last photo I took before they fell and the best of the bunch. It’s a little crooked and I wish I would have gotten the whole bike in the shot, but for my first time trying this technique, I’m pleased with the results.
