I just returned from a trip to visit relatives and was so tickled to see how great the Sunflower House is doing. I couldn't wait to take some photos with my easy to use digital camera. Sadly, though, I couldn't use my favorite Canon Powershot a1100is digital camera in the morning. That sweet and silver camera that makes me look so good had pulled a disappearing act, due to all the Sandwich Generation juggling I've been doing recently. Fortunately my trusty AT&T iPhone makes a nice substitute camera so I used it for these A.M. pix.
Aren't those two nice shots? Although, not quite as sharp as I like. I especially love the not-traditional, almost autumnal, one in the second photo. 🙂
I am happy to report, though, that by the late afternoon I found my camera, HOORAY! Would you believe it was in the same place I'd looked THREE times. It had fallen out of my bag onto the back seat floor of my car and was hiding partially under the seat. I had lifted that seat earlier but somehow missed it. I immediately swapped out my Canon Digital Powershot camera from the black case that was hard to see for one of those cute bright pink cases to make it easier for these hate-to-admit-to-aging baby boomers generation eyes to find.
Now that I had my favorite easy to use digital camera, it was time for more photos of The Sunflower House and its Sunflowers:
Isn't it cool the way they all face the same direction. From what I understand, Sunflowers follow the sun throughout the day, just as we should be following the Son of God throughout our days.
Notice how much crisper these three pictures are than the two above. I especially noticed the difference in the two shots of the maroonish sunflower.
I really appreciate my Canon Powershot A1100IS, though I also enjoyed using my friend's Canon Powershot SD1100 IS ELPH digital camera last week. Both are definitely easy to use and very SWEET digital cameras!
I'm also appreciating my senior mom, who made the whole Sunflower House a gardening priority. She watered it daily even when I was gone and it was sooooo hot. I really appreciate her for doing that, as do our grandkids. The Sunflower House activities for grandparents and their grandchildren are in full swing, as you might imagine. In fact, they're coming by tomorrow so I'm hoping to get more sweet and adorable shots then. I can't wait to show them all the blooms, along with the ones, like this one, that are just getting ready to bloom.
And while I'm on a roll of appreciation, I also really appreciate the great tips and ideas we get from Sweet Shot Tuesday at My 3 Boybarians to help us with our digital camera. They may be easy to use, but with the Sweet Shot tips, they'll be even easier! You'll love the ideas that can help you get even sweeter photos to save and savor your family memories for decades to come.
