One of the unexpected pleasures of our trip to the Botanic Gardens yesterday was the last day of the "Fine Art of Fiber" exhibition of quilting and other needle arts at the gardens' Regenstein Center. Deborah Abbott captured this sharp detail of a colorful quilt at a slow shutter speed with the camera's "kit lens" wide open -- and without a tripod. Now that's a steady hand.
