Hassle-Free Photography!


Sometimes we can get caught up in a moment trying to photograph it, and in doing so, we miss its true essence. We have our own camera – no buttons, no zoom attachments, no loading film or memory cards, no downloading onto discs, no developing prints….

NO HASSLES!

They always turn out perfectly.



Freeze Frames


clearly crystallized Kodak moments
I have remembered so well
fast frozen in my mind's eye
with its superior lens
an ever so still life
automatic focus
such sharp images
I'll never forget
Mother of Invention, still trying to figure out all the buttons on my digital and thinking that thankfully, there's always that unfilled, never-to-be-deleted memory card in my head!

Just like photographs memories can fade and change with time. They are two different mediums completely and neither is the truth. Sometimes I don't take pictures with my camera because I feel it's in my way.

Diana: Thank goodness, eh? I'd be in a sad state if I depended upon my camera/photography skills!

Bobealia: I never thought of them as not being the truth before but I agree!
I forgot to bring my camera once to a really neat university reunion and I was so mad, but then I thought, maybe it's better...just the memory in my head...maybe it's even more special.

So, true, my brother uses the camera too much, sometimes I think it is in order to detach. He takes beautiful pictures, but I would rather spend the time with him.

Sometimes the pictures in our heads are the best ones. They don't have to fade with time and can even be embellished!

Our eyes are so important to capture those moments for our memories. Even with a camera, one needs to be able to see what they are looking at to capture it correctly.

Old Lady: It's great to have Photos but the mind's eye can attach the necessary feelings and emotions to make it live. You're probably right about your brother's detaching tactic. I love documenting events with pics, but as I am taking them, I'm not participating, well, only from the fringe as an outsider, and I hate that feeling.

Barbara: Yeah, I like that embellishing idea! Very true. Kinda like photoshop touch-ups!

Brooksba: Absolutely! A concrete object has no "true vision"! WE need the direct link from our eyes to our emotional centre of the brain to actually get the "Print" accurate.

You have my best wishes and prayers that the memory card is never erased. Those "photos" can at times develop a haze that makes them difficult to appreciate as when they were new and ever so clear. As for me, I have been shooting for well over a year with my camera and still don't know most of what it does.
