    The best camera in the world is the one you have with you when you need a camera.

    This evening, that was my cell phone.

    This was taken and post-processed on my LTEvo.

    I'm calling it "Going Places" because that describes it for me.

    How about it? Got a photo you took, just for the moment, just for you, that speaks to you?

    Let's see! :)

    This was taken in the late Summer of 2009, of Daisy after we had just played a ton together (she was a lot like a large dog and loved to play). granted, it was not a fancy smartphone camera, and i was a bit anti-smartphone during the time (i call it my retro tech phase) and it was just a flip phone, some $20 Verizon Samsung phone who's only notable feature was camera, it was a replacement to my aging Nokia 5185i that had burned in a house fire February that same year. as me and Daisy were lying together she looked at me and i was lucky to snap this picture of her smiling, as she was often camera shy. Like the Sanchez Butt Fumble, this picture of a deer is undefeated and has yet to be challenged by anyone :)

    I often find myself watching the squirrels and I hurried up and snapped this one because I knew he was after that rabbit! Unsuccessful by the way.
    Played with Aviary on photo.

    Great shot. The bike looks like something the guys on American Pickers would want to grab!

    Here's one that definitely speaks to me, for me...about me. :) I took it a few days after Joy Noelle joined my family. My beautiful Freddie Mercury is looking down at her. Their weight difference that day? 180 pounds. (My kids all have to get along. That's a house rule! :D)

    I take most if my pics with my SG3, simply because it is there when I need it.
    When we're sitting around the dinner table the kitties like to be there too. Sometimes there's a beautiful connection, they're taking part in the conversation.

    This was on my birthday this year; an April's weekend along the coast of Norway. I felt at home, totally relaxed here. A dear moment.

    A coyote in Death Valley was waiting for us, standing there in the middle of the road.

  12. I love to snap a picture of just about anything, was in a phase of b/w buildings a long while ago. I don't have any on my laptop though, I'll have to fix that!
    I took this in February when I visited my son in Fl., cracks me up every time I look at it. It's a Laughing gull:

    On a sizzling (100+ degrees) day in May, I was in my usual spot at my patio table when this unexpected visitor showed up:

    [​IMG]

    Possums are supposed to be nocturnal, so my first reaction was...WTF?!! :eek: Not only was she out in broad daylight but she was very UNafraid of this human being a few feet away from her. But she was just looking for water--so she wasn't rabid, just hot!

    But the real reason I snapped pics is because of her striking resemblance to my little princess, Joy Noelle:

    [​IMG]

    I think they're twins separated at birth...and by nine years...and 1500 miles, since Joy was born in Carrollton, Texas and the possum here in Arcadia, CA. :D

    This wallet was made by a coworker 25 yrs ago. I didn't use it often because I didn't want to wear it out.

    This was taken back in Feburary, the wife and I stop by Sweetie Pie's restaurant. It is featured on Oprah's OWN tv network (cable). The owner also used to sing with Ike & Tina Turner. She was an Ikette! :D

    When there's heavy rain the stepping stones thing a common sight on almost every street corner, sometimes there's planks of wood to balance on as well. :rolleyes:

    Every time I see people dressing a store mannequin I think of the Kraftwerk song Showroom Dummies.

    You found my bicycle EM? How the hell did it get to New Mexico? Maybe it decided it was "Going Places"?

    I found this link, but not sure if the Sweetie Pie's show is still being shown. It is recorded in St. Louis.

    In 2011 we spent some time driving around in the south west of the USA. We passed by the Cadillac Ranch, in Amarillo TX.
    An open field, clear blue skies. Ten colorful Cadillacs half-buried nose-first in the ground.

    I also was keeping an eye out for squirrels earlier this year. I did have my DSLR on my desk in case I spotted one though.
