Pretty Bugs!

As a few of you know this weekend I visited Ypsilanti, MI for a Volkswagon show. It was a gorgeous day (so glad the forecasters were wrong!) and the air cooled VW's were all bright and shiny. These are my pictures from the day, no post editing done here, straight as I took them. Makes me happy that I am getting a tad better at the all manual mode.

check out the sticker : )

when we arrived home the rose bush was in full bloom.

Oh boy.... or girl.

So to my dear friend Lisa who let me use her for a photo session... Thank you. You were a trooper and a very good listner. Many of these needed a little touching up with photoshop when it came to cropping and adjusting the exposure. Curious on your thoughts, favorites, and suggestions.
