Mind of MadSnapper - how it works


How a POST just HAPPENS in my mind....

I am picking up dog poo...I see sea-grapes on the ground under the sea-grape tree... I bring them in and lay them on the table and Snap!


I want something to put them in, grab the candy dish that lives in the nook..


NOPE, don't like it...move the grapes and


then I think, wow, look at all those designs in the OOPS...


Sit the camera inside and click click click...


Not enough to just CLICK... I have to MONKEY with it




If you have no clue what a sea-grape is CLICK HERE for former posts. these photos are not our sea-grape but we have a big one like it in our yard.

My ideas for a post sometimes come when cleaning, cutting grass, workout out at the Y, driving...seems they are all around, Sandra, like yours. The cut glass reflections were so pretty...beauty from a simple item is so easy to find if we look and you did.

I love all the reflections!

How fun! Thanks for sharing all the photos. Hope you have a good day.

p.s. a friend sent me a link to a photo of a cat laying on a glass table with its feet tucked up under it (from underneath the table) What a fun pic that was to see!

I love your creative process because it shows your playfulness!

Auntie sezzzzzz... said...

Pretty play.

But I like the ones, with your toes "caught," best. -giggggles-

TexWisGirl said...

you do go off on a photo tangent often. :)

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

wow, the cut glass photos are wonderful! I love the color behind one of them.

I did read your other post on sea grapes, I do wonder how they taste.

Michaele said...

If I had your camera I would do the same thing. I just LOVE macros and my camera does not.

Deb said...

I love how you play...I love all the shots...but my favorite is the one with the colors in it...just too awesome....

DawnTreader said...

Well played :)

The end result resembles a stained glass window.

Cranberry Morning said...

Oooo, I like that last one especially! I do know what you mean. I think a lot of bloggers' posts happen like that. :-)

Linda said...

The last photo is my favourite - I see delicate, multicoloured leaves.

SweetMarie said...

I just LOVE your step by step play! Cool photos!!!

Ginny said...

Oh my gosh, it is all like being in church!!! The last one is the absolute best, it awesome, how did you edit that one to get it so much better than the others? Also I like your clear ones better than the yellowish, because the clear shows more colorful lights.

Eva Ason said...

It's great to see how an idea awakes :) just out of simple things and turns into art.

Ann said...

A day in the life of a snapper :) Did you use some of those new things on pic monkey for the play time? They look pretty cool

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh, I see toes. I have done that a few times too. I like the photo of the sea grapes in the crystal, it is pretty. And you know I love macros.

I thought of you this morning while I was cutting the grass. It was cloudy, 72 degrees and the humidity was 60% (for us that's high). As I was melting I thought about your humidity and summer temps. We have triple digits coming on Monday so hopefully the humidity will go away.

Chatty Crone said...

Okay that looked like the crystal cathedral there - beautiful and I like how you used the camera on the last one and the colors showed up. You are awesome. sandie

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Oh! I love what you've done with a simple cant dish.The last picture does look like stained glass.Amazing results.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

You come up with some amazing ideas for shots! I need to learn to think outside the box, as they say.

Betty Manousos said...

aw, those macro shots are gorgeous!
you did take them at nice angles.
love the reflections too.
you're soo creative my friend~

diane b said...

You do great stuff with your monkey. Those grapes are interesting. I see they even change colour. I haven't seen one of those trees.

Betty Manousos said...

your good sense of humour never fails to amaze me!!

Rose said...

Oh, my, these are gorgeous shots....

Dee said...
