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.
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.
Just a golden mass of flowers as we walked down the hill.
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.
Across the road, this garden has a wonderful display of lavender and I love the colours.
I couldn’t resist taking a quick shot of these pink flowers covered in raindrops. They look to be bowing their heads.
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.
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.
These golden beauty’s were growing at the side of the road as we walked into town.
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!
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.
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!
