Photo a day July 13- 20

by - 8:48 AM


I’m still doing photoadayjuly but have added a new twist for myself. The Experimental cook mentioned that she only had a point and shoot camera, my first thought was good pictures can be taken with point and shoot cameras too, just do it. Then I decided to do this week with a point and shoot too!

This sunset was on my drive home, I had both cameras with me, I pulled over, resisted the urge to grab the big camera and just took the little point and shoot and the tripod. There are no manual options on it so I experimented with the sunset, mountain and fireworks settings. Fireworks seemed to capture the colors of the sky best.



Here’s the list if you want to join late. It’s lots of fun. Big camera, little camera, phone camera, any kind!



This is the little point and shoot that is now joining photoadayjuly.

Uh, I never did get a finger photo with the DSLR. This two camera thing can get a little confusing.

I have a bad habit of over editing photos. It comes and goes, sometimes I stay on the wagon for a while and can control myself but every now and then I learn about some new fun way to edit photos and it’s all down hill from there. Here PicMonkey got the best of me. Free online photo editor, nothing to install on your computer, makes collages, add text, textures, frames, scrapbook-like overlays and borders, white balance, temperature adjustments and lots of adjustable presets. Way too much fun!

I know this one is late but I had to include it. This little yellow chair is the same little yellow chair that my aunt sat on for her picture so many years ago. My aunt is now a grandma to some  grandkids who are just a cute as she was way back then.

Looking forward to next week, hope you are too! I have no idea what I’m going to do for any of them!

What if 9 o’clock comes and goes twice and I can’t think of anything to take a picture of? AAHHH!

  1. Recent numbers show that 63% of US households own a pet - that's 71.1 million homes and families with dogs, cats, iguanas, parakeets, fish, ferrets, potbellied pigs, etc, etc., Taking care of a pet is tougher than taking care of an infant, since our pets can't speak. Hence, making sure your pet is safe and happy when you leave it alone at home should be a priority for all pet owners. One of the simplest ways of watching over a pet remotely is by using some sort of webcam software like GotoCamera that is easily available online these days. Thanks to technology and some very smart people who are working on making things easier for us, you can now use your basic webcam to monitor your pets while you're away from them.

    Every of your picture tells a story. Some got me laughing or others had me thinking. I think they are all very wonderful!
    ps. My father-in-law is doing fine. When one can't change the situation, the least I can do is to change my attitude.

  3. Great idea doing 2 pics a day to compare cameras. Nice!! :D
