My Photography Hobby


This rose bud is part of the same bush that I declared dead last week.  It has a bit of life left in it.
My sister 1977
I have liked taking pictures since I was a child, so my parents gave me a Kodak 110 camera.  They paid for the developing of the film at our local drug store pharmacy.

The digital cameras allow us to capture some of the detail that the eye can see.  The delete button is handy also!

I am always amazed with the human eye and the way the brain processes the beauty!

The best thing about digital photography is that you can take as many photos as you want and not have to worry about "wasting film" or bad shots.

me to on the camera and the human eye, digital picks up so much detail, like in that gorgeous rose you thought was dead. i am watching the back yard and it still amazes me when a stick grows leaves.

Nice close up of the rose bud! It is fun to take pictures. I always wish I knew more about it. Then I always say, "One of these days!" :)

Nice pix, Kim. I, too, always loved photography, but I'm not that good at it.
Peace,
Muff

Looks like that rose bush still has some life in it. I have always wanted to dabble in photography, just can't find the time. Hey, thanks for voting for me! That means the world to me...

Karen said...

Hooray for your rose bush! It looks like you will have some beautiful blossoms.
I love photography, and have always taken pictures. I used to be a painter, but with the MS I can no longer create with a brush, so now I use a digital camera, and I love it.
Cheers

Great shot! I love photos that focus in on an object upfront and the rest seems to fade away!

How encouraging to see life in a little place you didn't expect it to be!

I wish I was a better photographer. I was looking at some of the pictures I posted on my blog this morning and thinking they could've been much better.

I love digital cameras because you don't have to pay to have the pix developed and can delete the bad ones.

What a nice surprise that rose bud is! Beautiful photography Kim. I remember the days of waiting forever to get our photos back! Wishing you a nice week.

Wanda said...

I've loved picture taking since I was young too... such a gratifying past time when you can create beautiful images!

Looks like your rose bush is off to a good start. I love taking pictures to but have a lot to learn.

Rachel said...

If we look hard enough, we can see little signs of life all around us, even when things seem lost to us!

Stephanie M. Page said...

I absolutely love these pictures!! Beautiful, how fun to have a gift encouraged at a young age. ;)

Connie Arnold said...

Great picture of the rose, Kim, and sweet picture of your sister! Digital cameras are wonderful. I really appreciate mine for taking pictures of my grandchildren!

Deborah said...

This reminds me of my "crazy camera" my parents bought me when I was around 10 years old. I loved taking pictures too. It think it was called a Kokky camera or something like that. I think I will look for it on ebay!

I see a "photographic" moment in my minds' eye and when I take the photo in real time...it doesn't quite match the one I had pictured just seconds before. I think I "color" my photos!! HA
