Quick Snap!


 As I walked in Publix for  milk, I did what I call a Quick Snap! that means while walking I jerk my Coolpix out of my jeans pocket and Snap with barely a pause. Most of the time when it looks like this, I just delete it.


Because I am in love with playtime on PicMonkey  I decided to see what I could DO with this not so cool photo. Had to remove the couple that were walking in the door in front of me trying not to stare at the IDIOT with the camera.


MadSnapper Trivia:

I never leave home without at least one camera. I snap any and everything I see. I am addicted to clicking the clicker on my cameras, and there has not been one day since I retired 6 years ago that I did not take one or more photos.
I am also addicted to email, photoshop and now PicMonkey.... and the why of it all is there is NO REASON. I just LOVE IT, well maybe the saying Avoid Work at All Cost could have a little to do with it.

I adore PicMonkey, also IPccy, that has a few that PicMonkey doesn't have, they each have some things the other doesn't. I just love the chairs, even without the edits! When I first saw them, it looks like you had been on the deck of a big ship on a cruise.

I love what you did with the chairs. Why is it someone is always standing nearby talking and messing up my shot? I mean other than they have every right to be there. THH!

Some sort of camera is always with me too. I would go into withdrawals if I when somewhere without it. I've got to try PicMonkey one of these days with both you and Ginny talking about it.

I haven't yet tried PicMonkey (but you know I like to play with Picasa). I love the one with the palm tree... The whale maybe a tad too much ;) although for fun, sure, why not!

RoeH said...

I like the palm tree in the photo. Pretty neat. I am not as addicted but I sure should be. Many the time has been that I've seen something out and about and didn't have a camera. :(

These photos are so cool - I like what you have done using PicMonkey...need to try that out [hehe].
Have a great day! I've been up and about for some hours now...sun is shining this morning...so better get my butt in gear and go out for a bit.

I agree, Elaine, that snapping photos because you can is the best reason to do it. I also have a camera with me nearly all the time and the best shots are those unexpected ones.really liked the chairs, both alone and with the effects.

Mamabug said...

That turned out really cool! I love it when you play with your photos!

Whatever keeps you out of trouble is a good thing!! Love the chairs. I'm with Ginny--thought you were on a cruise.

Best,

Susannah said...

really like the pic with the palm tree...although, to me, they all are good. Keep taking a camera with you....we reap the benefits!
Hope you are having a nice day today. Beautiful here in NY.

I really like the chairs in a row! I like the colors and that you took this pic at Publix! You go girl! The PicMonkey seems like fun. I need to try it out.
You are so much fun!
Have a great Saturday!

photowannabe said...

I have never used PicMonkey. It sure looks like fun. I do play with Picasa though. You may have intrigued me enough to give it a try sometime.
Love what you did with the chairs. You sure find interesting, everyday things to photograph.
You, Sandra have earned your name...Mad Snapper!

What colorful chairs. Glad your camera is always with you.

Betty Manousos said...

this is so creative!
love your colourful chairs, great angle and captures as well.

Ann said...

Looking at the first picture I was thinking I really like those chairs, they're so colorful and I love the green ones. Then I saw the second one that you played with and wow, it looks great. I like the palm tree and whale you added too. It would make a great post card for Florida :)

Deb said...
