Something Else Saturday: Photos to Smile About

ses-photos-thIt’s not just makeup that I photograph, though it may seem like it at times. If I’m going somewhere where I expect a camera to be useful, I do bring my camera bag with me, and there are bits and pieces in it for different tasks. Sometimes they do turn out quite well, and looking at them makes me smile. Today for Something Else Saturday I’m going to share some of my favourites from this year.



This actually wasn’t taken with my big camera. It wasn’t taken with any camera actually. It was taken with my phone yesterday. I wasn’t expecting to walk around the corner of the house into the gardens and see such a vivid rainbow, but there it is, and I just had to take some kind of photo of it.



One of my other loves is aircraft, and so I spent the afternoon of the Bray Air Show in July on Bray seafront frantically moving about trying to get angles right for shots. There are a few I am happy with, but I am amazed at the perfect timing of this to get both planes lined up so perfectly.



One of the joys of living so close to the coast is that you can put together a shot like this. Taken not long before midnight on an early April night, I just love how the light of the moon illuminates a path along the sea.



This wasn’t taken with an expensive close up lens. All I did was add a close up filter to the included camera lens (cost me less than €10 for a set of 4, thank you ebay). Shortly after getting them, I got a bright morning with the flowers starting to bloom, so I tried them out. This is the result, as is the next photo.

Using the same close up filters as before, but this time a more powerful one, allowed me to get close enough to the flower to perfectly capture the droplets of dew on the petals, along with the vivid colours.

So, there you go, a few photos o keep you smiling over the weekend. Hopefully that will keep you going until Monday when it will be time for another manicure.
