Friday Photo(s): a writer, two dawgs, a messed up camera, and Picasso photo fun

20 Apr

I’m so excited because soon a local photographer (Christy Bishop) is going shopping with me to help me purchase my “Good Camera” — the camera for which I have been wanting for years. With nice lenses and–oh, I don’t know what wonders it will have – haw! *jumping around all yippity-doo-dah-day!*

I will miss my point and shoot Sony Cybershot–it’s taken some really nice shots and has served me well over the years. But, it has its limitations and I’ve outgrown it. And, it no longer takes quality photos. There is something wonky inside the workings that leaves dots and amoeba-like blobs and shadows.  So almost every photo I take is ruined. But I couldn’t just delete all of the photos I am prompted to snap, so these messed up photos have me fiddle-dee-deeing with them in Picasso to hide the blobs, and the results feel nice to my chaotic pea-headed brain.

So, for my first “Friday Photo(s)” (Linky Love is on hiatus while I try out some other things), I’ve pasted in : A writer and her dawgs and a little pea-headed messing around, and a couple-a flowers from my cove walk.

Now, y’allses go have a wonderful weekend, and if you have photos and/or art on your blog/website, link to it–Rose & Thorn Journal is always on the search for art/photography. We are eclectic so it doesn’t have to be “traditional” – you can peruse our Art Gallery to see what’s there–some interesting, intriguing, beautiful work. Just be aware that I do not pick the art, so I’d only be referring your site to our Art Director, who, if interested, would contact the artist. For more information, go to R&T Art Galley and read up.

And the weird thing is, sometimes a photo doesn’t show those blobs/shadows at all, or they are so hidden I can’t see them, as in this shot . . . I’m baffled!

See y’all Monday – ! Have a great weekend.

    Lawd, you are so creative! Do like the pictures, especially the second one because your cutie patootie doggums has such an amusing expression!

    You will tell us which camera you end up buying, yes?

      The auggie/border collie mix HATES the camera – she’s as bad as I am about shying away from it :-D

      I will! I’m excited -I think it’ll be a Nikon, but I guess I’ll see what she suggests … wheeee!

    Kat,
    Good luck with your camera shopping. I love buying new gadgets, especially ones that a luddite like me can figure it. You know: point and shoot.

      *laugh* – well, I have been drooling for a new camera for a long time – I was almost relieved my old point and shoot malfunctions – although, I’m disappointed that it did – it wasn’t a “cheapy” camera and should last longer – I’ve babied it!

    Hi Kat .. well you’re going to have fun – and what photos will we see. These are fun – and I love all the first photos – dawgs and all .. then the brooms – presumably to sweep them away? Funny photo as you say .. Enjoy the weekend and the practising … cheers Hilary
