Coming home

I’ve been out a little with my camera but not really seen or captured anything lately that really gives me satisfaction. I figured that I should just give myself a break and wait for the proper frame of mind to return when it will.

So I was hanging out in the backyard and all these little details were just standing out for me. I had my phone in my pocket, an S3, so not being really serious I started taking a few snaps.

And sometimes I think the camera on my phone takes better pictures than my actual camera.

Pesky creatures though they may be at times, flies can also be very pretty.

I had to chase this one around a little until it settled in one place. Probably talking to its friends now about the bloody paparazzi!

Anyway, I thought I’d try a rehabilitate this little creature in the eyes of the public, so we can all see how beautiful it also is. Plus they serve the necessary purpose of cleaning up our rubbish.

The simple things in life often bring me the greatest pleasure. A few drops of water on a leaf stand for the whole of life.

The fuchsia is here, the fuchsia is now. Now we know, let’s all take some time out to appreciate the present moment.

Of course the phone camera is limited to a fixed wide angle, but sometimes that angle is exactly what I want.

And sometimes, it is the small and close that I really want, not the large and impressive. Small pictures with a small camera of a small place.
