camera challenge{d}: manual mode

i had so much fun exploring my camera in manual mode this week!
i felt so much freedom and control
(even though the control i felt was all trial and error).
i found myself loving all the light i could achieve by playing around with the "numbers".

i've begun a camera challenge{d} flickr group for those wanting to join in. the more encouragement the better! show us your pictures!!

next week i will focus on taking pictures with color.
want to join me?
