Snaps from my Phone.

There’s a saying amongst many online photographers. The best camera is the one you have with you, and these shots prove that saying true. I am also finding that I am getting better at taking shots with the camera in my Nokia phone. On our way to have an x-ray done yesterday at the hospital, I took the opportunity to try and illustrate various fauna and flowers after the rain. I did have to keep stopping of course to take each shot, but I didn’t take my time. Hope you enjoy them all.

After the rain

This is taken over the wall of some wet fauna growing in the old grounds of the ruined residential home that we pass on our way down to town.

Gold in the rain

Just a golden mass of flowers as we walked down the hill.

Some more gold

This is part of someone’s hedge at the bottom of the hill, and it has these very attractive gold and white flowers. Note the raindrops.

beautiful lavender

Across the road, this garden has a wonderful display of lavender and I love the colours.

raindrop covered pinks

I couldn’t resist taking a quick shot of these pink flowers covered in raindrops. They look to be bowing their heads.

purple beauty

Just outside the hospital car park is this gorgeous display of mauve and purple, so I took two shots of these. Not entirely in focus, but a lot depends on where you tap the screen on the Nokia.

Close up Mauve

And here’s my other capture of their beauty. They are very close to a busy road junction, and you can just see one of the bollards at the top right.

raindrops amongst the flowers

These golden beauty’s were growing at the side of the road as we walked into town.

enchanting pinks

As I took this shot of these beautiful roses peeking out from the hedge of a garden, the owner came out to see what I was doing!

Prince Albert atop his horse

This statue is of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s escort. It’s actually a teal colour but I decided to give it the black and white treatment.

old coal grate

This ornate coal grate caught my eye as we neared town. I might do a blog post soon on this very subject. There were actually two of them, both identical.

That’s all for now folks and keep snapping!
