What Silly Snapper did NEXT


I had so much fun sitting my camera on the counter  making stars, I went to Wal-Mart and bought a Mono-pod ...

 It's a stick that attaches to any camera and telescopes to the size I need up to higher than my head.

A mono-pod Removes Old People Camera Shake.  NOTE: a tripod is to heavy for me to carry, and hurts my hands to open it....


 While attempting to use the MP on my little tree, the MP slid and it make a squiggle.... You know the rest of the story....


Say it with me NOW...... Because She Could...


If you are interested in doing this.... IF you are.... put it on slow speed.. point and shoot is Fireworks setting and wave the camera up, down, and all around. Below is my other tree that has white lights.


PS...YOU do NOT need a mono-pod to do this.... LOL
PSS... I will be waiting to see YOURS
PSS.. My apologies to all you REAL photographers.....

It is a golden shower, it is beautiful!!!!! I also love the first ones, they look like colored Silly String. This Mono Pod, will any camera ft o it? What is the downside? How much did it cost? I need a tripod but cannot mess with one, this may be the answer. My camera has a little screw hole thing on the bottom for a tripod.

Sounds like a great gadget to get, and those images are actually really cool. Half way through the week already and gettin' ready for work. Have a great day!

Now that is excellent! Obviously the whole world has a tree....apart from us... Deccy x

I have seen the mono-pods but wasn't sure if it would be worth getting. I do have a small tripod but I rarely take it with me.

The lights are great. I really like the last one!

Maple Lane said...

How fun! I love the pics!

Muffy's Marks said...

Deb said...

Hey Sandra you are a real photographer you just don't get paid to do it ... I love seeing your fun... They really turned out cool

diane b said...

Your header is great and the modern art light scapes are fun. TOH uses a mono pod especially with his movie camera.

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

So cool. Love the last one!!!!!!!! Yummy...

EG CameraGirl said...

Great fun, Sandra. As far as I'm concerned YOU ARE a real photographer. :)

Remington said...

These are AWESOME! You are so creative! Love your header. I am happy you liked your card....I used a little extra drool on your card....just because you are so special to me....

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh good grief, you ARE a real photographer. The only difference is the money. lol LOVE these shots, Sandra. And I see now why the monopod is preferred, rather than the awkward, difficult-to-handle tripod.

TexWisGirl said...

i think these are great! you goof.

next time you're bored, try flashlight painting. similar concept but you move the flashlight around while the camera stays still. :) i've never done it but have seen others post on it.

Madi and Mom said...

WEll Mad Snapper we say if you aren't having fun then you are doing it wrong and one thing for sure you are
HAVING A TON OF FUN.

That mono-pod would also make a very good weapon!!
hugs madi and mom

Wow this is really neat.
I must put this one on my Birthday list. January from hubby.

How much are they?
One gal asked. You must give us a update. Or I guess I can browse on line for price also.

When I do my fences to make them look different.

I set my camera on the top of fence but it is tricky. This is much more full prove and safe.

Love the gaget.Your pictures have
brilliance alright.

Thanks for sharing.

I did a wee christmas tree out front and my camera gave me a nice view and they look like butterflies as lights. I must put it up today on my blog.

Can you use this outside in winter?




Cheryl @ TFD said...

You do the most interesting shots! I got some squiggly photos when I tried to snap fireworks last July 4. :)

Inger said...

You are about as real a photographer as you can get! And the joy you feel when working your camera is contagious. So much fun to come here.

Rose said...

Oh, gee, I do love these...I don't know why I haven't experimented more with this...you can see one I did by accident
here

Just scroll down a little bit.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

LOVE these and now you found a new way to photograph lights and love the star effect too!

Angela said...

I really like the effect you got from the last picture! It would make a cook background for something I'm sure!

SweetMarie said...

You are so fun!!! I love these beautiful colors, especially the last one. :)

Susannah said...

A Christmas rainbow! And the gold one is gorgeous, too. Ya know...it is fun to read your blog because you are having so much fun!Makes me smile!

George said...

Very well done! I enjoyed all of these pictures, with or without the mono-pod. I must not be a real photographer because I really like all of these.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

You created some very interesting and pretty artwork. I may just have to try that sometime.

Michaele said...

How cool that is!!

p.s. I just read Jake's story. Amazing! All of you!

Chatty Crone said...

Honestly I don't have a great camera and I don't even know what a mono pad is. If I had the money and more time I would love to get them.

So for now I get to look at all your wonderful ticks and photos.

Thanks.

Ann said...

Because I can, I take pictures like this every year....lol I love doing this and seeing what kind of designs I can get. Love yours and the white lights look like a massive explosion going on

Maggie M said...

Those are some very pretty squiggles. I think they are very nice works of art. Hugs

Catherine said...

Your photos are fun. I think they would make great Christmas cards!

Betsy Adams said...

HA HA ---I was getting ready to say that you don't need a mono-pod to take those last group of photos....(But you said it!)

That's some of your 'artsy-fartsy' photos.... ha ha

I do have a mono-pod and took it when we drove to Gatlinburg last year to take night pictures of their Christmas lights... It's handier than my tri-pod...

Hugs,
Betsy

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

What fun you have had, I am hoping for a tripod for Christmas but a monopod food for thought. :)

Debra Dickinson said...

These are FANTASTIC! Love them!!! And you ARE a real photographer. "Fireworks" setting?? Man, my little 'ole point and shoot must be really old.... to go with my shakes. :)
