Summer – Alpine Meadows

No drawing or painting here, but making pictures was my creative outlet last week. I was trying out point and shoot cameras. The Band was taken with my iphone. Lots of sun added to the drama of this shot. The photographs of the bikes and the wildflower were taken with a Canon S100 that fits in your pocket. Early Morning Reflection was taken with my Canon G11. This camera takes beautiful pictures, but is heavy when I carry it in my purse. If I decide to take this one, I’ll probably put the strap back on and just keep it over my shoulder. I changed the strap to an UP strap. This strap has a nice thick piece at shoulder level which eliminates slipping. The new Sony cyber-shot digital camera RX100, won’t be released in time for me to check it out before I leave on a trip to Europe. This is probably a good thing. The camera is rather expensive. Anyway, you don’t need the latest and the greatest. What’s important is your eye, your knowledge of how to take a good photograph.
