A Mother's Day Gift

28 Mar 2022 3:15PM   Views : 315 Unique : 197


A mother's day present my daughters (Nikita and her sister) asked me to purchase for their mum gave me a quick photo opportunity. Orchids are beautiful things and what was originally a quick photo to show the girls what was purchased resulted in, what is, a rather nice photo.

Again, the Pixel makes it so easy to capture photos as I simply popped the camera into portrait mode so it knew I wanted to introduce some bokeh, framed the shot and clicked the shutter button - couldn't be any easier! There's a little clipping towards the top but I can live with that.

I hope those of you who are reading my blog entries are enjoying it and are also realising that smartphones aren't something we should shy away from for photography as for someone of slightly older age, they make the hobby a doodle while allowing me to be creative.

When the bell tolls...

Pretty Building

They have revamped a lot of old town in Paphos but this building still has some of its original charm about it. The red frames and shutters pop against the whitewash and there's also some interesting detail when you get up close.

Move Your Feet...

I Love An Old Door

There's just something about old doors that shout to me and as a result, I've been photographing them for quite some time now. All of the history and stories they could tell... plus, they have great designs and are much more interesting to look at ...
