    I have been collecting pictures of plants and I have found a facination in a subject I do not know. I suppose that their is a formal way of learning botany, but at my stage in life, plunging right in is probably best. Thanks for the photos.

    Patricia-
    Like any subject, there is formal training available, of course. But there are so many ways to study and appreciate plants- you just need to ask yourself, what do I want to know? What do I want to do with this knowledge? If you’re like me, perhaps you just find plants fascinating…I don’t have any formal training, either. But I have found that through reading (and the wealth of written material on plants–from the dry and technical to the casual and hip–is myriad) and visits to the field I’ve learned a tremendous amount. It also helps to hang out with other “plant people.” I think you will find as you study plants more, the more you will want to know. Best of luck.

    Many thanks for the link to Histograms. I used my beloved old Olympus OM-1 for a couple of decades, and then finally gave in and bought a digital SLR (Canon Rebel). A nice camera, and I (or somebody) could probably do a lot with it, but so far I haven’t done much more than point-and-shoot. Sigh. One day I’ll learn how to use the thing. I’m keen on this hisotgram business, I like graphs and things, maybe I’ll get interested in that, and then learn how to do digital photography.
