Archive Dive #3

 When I bought my first digital in 2002, it was a 3 MP Kodak Easy Share, 2004 I bought what I thought I wanted thinking 6 MP would be a faster camera. I wanted one that would fire as fast as I pushed the button, it was 2006 before I got the first Rebel DSLR

 the point of all this blather, is I took great photos with the 3, 6, 12 and 16... we don't have to have a different camera, just keep playing with what we have (says the madsnapper on her 5th camera)
 
 There is a reason the cameras are called Point and Shoot Cameras.... that is what I did at work and sometimes they thought there was lighting from all my snapping.
These photos were taken in 2004 with the Kodak 6 MP

Love, love, love these beautiful flowers. Also love the creativity of your first photo, beautiful. I've lost count of my cameras but still say a camera is just a tool, it's all in the eye of the photographer.

Oh yes ~ playing with your camera is a must! Snap snap snap away. The joys of digital. ;)

Lovely shots Sandra!

Love the color and the composition. Gerbera daisies are a favorite. The fly is not (but good photo anyway).

Best,
Bonnie

Drop jaw, the Gerber's are outstanding, very professional and clarity. It takes a good eye and you sure have it, you know your way around a camera.

I really love the reds. When I'm out walking I love to focus on just one flower, all the color, each petal etc. Nice shots :)

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

Yes, yes, yes... I understand. You are telling us that one can do wonders, with whatever camera they have at present.

And you do.

But!!!

'Tis not just the camera, Dear One. Needed, is the person wielding the camera... Needed is a smart, able to learn easily, competent, patient and smart person, wielding the camera.

You are those things!!!!!

Not all of us, are thus. Sad to say. But being honest, I am so saying.

You have "an eye" and an ability!!!

Anyone can dabble with the tools of art.

Only an artist can make them sing!

Pam said...

Pop went the vivid reds then came the lovely sunny yellow.
Beautiful as always, Sandra.

In the right hands any camera can give good pictures,as these show. The whole idea is to have fun,at least that is my idea.

Rose said...

These are beautiful and I want to say before you change it and I forget...I love that header shot!!!

Eva Ason said...

I love these photos, beautiful colors. I love taking close ups of flowers. I like your header photo - makes me wishing for Spring :)

George said...

You got some wonderful pictures from your point-and-shoot. You've clearly shown that it is the photographer -- not the camera -- which is most important.

Ann said...

All so true. I love all your shots. I was going through some old files the other day and I think I'll be doing a little archive diving myself :)

Deb said...

Love seeing all of the flowers--especially the colors. Colors are so important for us (who are experiencing winter) to see this time of year especially... Thanks for sharing.
