Have Camera, Will Travel!


I take my camera everywhere I go. It's a digital camera I got about 5 years ago. I still occasionally use my very first digital camera and it's almost 10 years old.

I remember the day I bought it, I fell in love instantly and whipped out that credit card before I had a chance to change my mind. It was $400 for the camera and docking station, but I didn't bat an eye as I handed my card to the clerk. I was too busy imagining all the wonderful shots I was about to catch!

Needless to say, buyer's remorse set in later that day. I thought about returning it and telling them that I had been on cold medication and wasn't supposed to be making big decisions or walking around by myself, but I kept it. The photos that follow are from that ancient camera. Enjoy!

Green Silo Kind Of Morning

I pass this every day. I think it was posing just right on this day!

Kitty Feet!

The feet of Mr. Jelly. He loved sleeping on the stairs. I miss him. He passed away last year.

Asleep In Jesus 1890

I spent a few days in the cemetery just looking at old markers. I couldn't read this one. All I could make out was the date of death and  "Asleep in Jesus" at the bottom.

The Urn of Bryan

A rather large grave marker. The family name is Bryan, but I couldn't read the date.

Buster

I never figured out what this one was. There is no headstone, only one name maker with a number marker beside it. They are very close to the street. I thought maybe a pet, but this is not a pet cemetery.

Mid-morning Of The Living Dead

This one always makes me think of the movie "Night of the Living Dead".

A Refreshing Sip Of Mushroom

I love how this tiny mushroom is holding that little bit of rain.

      I love your photos. I can walk about half a mile and am in the country. That is wonderful. Have friends with horses so the barn looks like a lot of barns I have seen. I have also seen the sunset in the country ( not in the city) My profile says Columbus but that is just a general feature. Sometimes if you are out ( with your horse of course, no pun intended) it is so quiet,it is amazing. Thank you for this hub.

      Awesome photos. This is something I plan to by soon, or maybe a phone with a decent camera (as I always have it with me).

      Thanks for SHARING.

      Brett, I haven't had the chance to try any phones with cameras so I'm not sure what's out there. I hear they are so much better than they used to be. I just use a plain ol' cell phone, but I really want an iPhone!

      I think the photos show that you are a natural with a camera.

      Great pictures! I like to just walk in the country and take random pictures too. Can't wait for a little warmer weather so I can get out more. Voted up and beautiful! Thanks for sharing them with us! :)

      Very cool hub! I also have a love for old cemeteries and have taken some great shots in them. I should probably do a hub about that ;). Old cemeteries are so interesting. When we went to Savannah a few years back I spent hours roaming the cemeteries because they were just so beautiful.

      Isn't digital photography the best? I've done both film and digital and I don't think I can go back to film. You can definitely do more "fun" stuff with digital. I love your photos.
