The camera is a wonderful invention. My eyes see the beauty around me, and the ugly, and the so-so. But the camera’s eye captures it all, and then my eyes can see it again and again. It brings those moments back, sometimes when I thought I’d totally forgotten it all.
The last few days I’ve been looking through the camera lens a lot, it seems. I’ve tried photos in the middle of the day, in the evening, and again in the morning, trying to get that ‘perfect’ shot. Well, it hasn’t happened yet, but the pursuit sure has been fun!
I tried a couple of evening shots of different things.
Well…OK…maybe more than a couple – but it was so much fun I just couldn’t stop myself. The morning ones were fun, too – especially on that foggy morning a couple of days ago. It sure didn’t look like near the end of July – more like the beginning of October!
I tried a few in the middle of the day too, just to compare lighting. Now I don’t know which I like better – morning, noon, or night!
Oh . . . I almost forgot. This week’s photo challenge is purple, and not a purple picture to ponder here! Reckon I’ll add one more, then – a beautiful sunset reflecting on some big clouds. They promised rain but never delivered.
That sky was purple and blue and orange and pink and yellow. The camera didn’t really capture the true beauty, but close!
On a closing note, I’ve been following a really cool site called Leanne Cole Photography, and she does amazing things with photographs. I love the way she does old houses. She inspired me to think about sharing some of my collection, because everywhere we travel I seem to get several pictures of old houses and barns. And, since our vacation is VERY quickly approaching, what better time to share some memories of days gone by.
