Oh, I don't know. I think your pictures are lovely. Why do you think you need a book? If so, go to my blog entry for January 4th (I tried to include an html link, but failed) and scroll down to the book on digital photography. I haven't read any of it yet, but my husband thought it was a worthwhile purchase.

Mary, I agree with Les your photos are beautiful.

If you'd like a different sort of perspective, try snapping just a portion of the frozen tree/bush and use aperture priority, which will focus what you're highlighting and make the rest of the photo fuzzy. I've been playing with aperture priority like mad lately. It can give a very nice effect.

Apperture priority, eh? I'll have to look that up in the manual. It certainly would have helped with the icy branches this morning. Thanks for the tip, Lisa.

I checked your blog, Les, and I plan to look for the Stephen Johnson book when I go to the bookstore next week. Does the author talk at all about photographing buildings? I would particularly like to take attractive photos of the houses in my neighborhood.

I must confess that I haven't looked at the book I mentioned other than to flip through quickly after unwrapping it on Christmas morning! It's in my nightstand stack and I hope to get to it this coming month. I'll try to remember to glance through and see if it addresses architectural photography for you, though.

Thanks, Les.

Mary, I checked and the book doesn't have anything specific about buildings. I asked my husband (who used to teach photography) and he says buildings are very tough to photograph. Might want to peruse the shelves at a good bookstore for something devoted to that specifically. Sorry!

Mary Ronan Drew

Thanks for looking up architectural photography in your book, Les. Everybody says this is a particularly difficult art, taking pictures of buildings.

I may get that book anyhow as it looks pretty good.
