When the Sun shows up I get hopeful. Hopeful that Winter is heading out and Spring will bring us color, warmth and the green things back into the world. Today I was hopeful. Tonight not so much! As the biting and unrelenting wind showed up, with Winters bitter grip in tow, I turned to last Springs and Summers photo for solace. Here is a photo I took with my Olympus Sp-350. I have yet to find a sweet spot on this camera s far as focusing goes. It does however take a decent macro. So here is a salute to Spring and looking forward by looking back. Enjoy!
As The Boy and I took our morning stroll, in search of the perfect poo”spot”, I noticed that dew was gracing all natures wonders this fine morning. After his business was completed we went back inside and I grabbed my Sp350 and pops FinePix S700.The hope was to get several shots with the morning sun dancing across or draping the morning dew draped landscape. Here are a few of the Dew as I see it. (As an aside to clear up any confusion The Boy is my little buddy Ficus, a Corgi, not a real boy. Upon reflection it is now past his bath time, due to an unexpected surgery, and he smells like a teenage boy so there are some similarities!)
Here are three different “looks” from one of my coolest roadside find yet!
Though I hate to complain that does not mean I will not. The bottom line is I miss my PowerShot S3is badly! I have tried to get to know my Olympus and to find the sweet spots on the SP-350 but alas I give in to the fact it is no S3is. The SP-350 simply has a mind of its own when it comes to evaluating a shot. No matter what I set it at it evaluates to the beat of another shutter. Cry not for me for I will simply set out on a few months of 35mm adventure and mayhem as I am soon to be a proud owner of a Canon AE-1 set up. Till then I will enjoy what I have and count myself truly blessed!
I started this blog with goal of sharing my photos and on this my 60th post here areTwo For You!
I purchased an Olympus SP-350 last year and found myself always falling back on my PowerShot S3is. Now with the potential demise of my S3 I have taken up arms again with the SP-350. Here are a few from the day. Let me know what you think!
The last week has been some what of a challenge. Getting a chance to shoot has been as well but I have a very good friend with a wonderful garden I know I can access. My wife and I enjoy it and the quite it brings. It is open anytime I need a space to breath in.The Tulips are from her garden and the Magnolia Bush from a drive by shoot I did after a storm passed midweek. The storm left the petals battered but still standing. Enjoy!
