Petal's Pics


I thought Mo's idea of having a separate section other than the photo competition was an excellent plan, so decided to open a thread for some of my photos as well, as I also experiment with a new camera.

My camera doesn't require extra lenses, which was one of the reasons that I bought it - I'm only an amateur photographer and can't afford to spend a fortune on equipment all the time, apart from which I don't want extra stuff lying around. Mo is a much better photographer than I will ever be, so I can understand why she is prepared to go the extra mile, but this one is sufficient for my needs and so far, although I still have a lot to learn, I'm quite happy with it.

It was dull and overcast this morning when we went for a walk with the dogs, but below is an indication of my "point and shoot" efforts to illustrate the zoom effect.

This is a little bird feeding at a bird-house at one of the houses here -

The first photo is just a normal snap. I was standing about 10 metres away.

I see what you mean. Pretty birdie.

I'm not that good a photographer, I just enjoy playing with technology. And this new digital photography technology is fun to use.

That is a sweet little bird.

And the zoom looks fairly good but I don't know much about cameras myself.

He's a little Red Bishop. They have such lovely colours at the moment, but these will fade as autumn takes hold of us ...

Edit: This and the next pic show summer flying insects buzzing around a light, soon after dark. I love the way they looks like vapour trails and strands of DNA lol!

That's a lovely picture of the rocks. I couldn't walk up there, I have to listen to what my body says when it says "enough."

Re:


Experimenting down on the beach and around the hotel today ...

This one was pure fluke! Couldn't see a thing through the viewfinder because the ship on the horizon was so far away, but clicked the button anyway and so it was a surprise to see that it actually did record the vessel heading for Durban!

Aw lovely. That one of the ship is terrific. I forgot about that, but most of my sea photos from the deck were too light.
