The Sunflower House blossoms photo with my easy to use digital camera do come out crisper and sharper than my iPhone 3

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.

The Sunflower House activities for grandparents and their grandchildren is doing great

Love the colors of this blossom in the Sunflower House

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.  ðŸ™‚

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.

Bright pink canon digital powershot camera cases make it easier for these hate-to-admit-to-aging baby boomers generation eyes to find their easy to use digital camera

Now that I had my favorite easy to use digital camera, it was time for more photos of The Sunflower House and its Sunflowers:

Notice how all the flowers from the Sunflower House are facing in the same direction- as I understand it - they follow the sun thru the day - just as we should follow the Son of God

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.

Love the photos I get of the Sunflower House with my easy to use digital camera


Love the shade of this sunflower in the Sunflower House and love the crispness from my easy to use digital camera

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. 

The Sunflower House has varying stages of blooms

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.

    Awesome pictures!! My sister has the same camera–she loves it and it does take nice photos! Don’t feel bad lol, I’ve been thinking about changing out my black camera case for something brighter too! I’ll have to check those tips out as I’m always looking to make my shots come out better!!

    You know-I love the correlation between following the “sun” and “son”. To me though I really like the one that is about to bloom-because at this point it really has limitless potential! 😉

  19. Hi Shelle, Thanks for visiting. I know y’all have some intriguing ones as well! 🙂

  20. Hi Killashandra, Thank you 🙂 I’ve done that myself more years than I can count so I know the feeling. But I’m so impressed that you have a full on garden! My black and green thumb and I have never been that brave – though my senior mom and her gardening do WONDERFUL and I keep adding bits and pieces, so someday….. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Greetings from a fellow sunflower-loving mama! The sunflower house is a wonderful idea. I planted one when the piXies were wee ones that never took off (too arid), but we live in a milder climate now, so perhaps I should try again. Probably too late for this year… ThanX for the inspiration.

    PS: I’m a Canon girl too!

  21. Hi diXymiss, TWO COOL- sunflowers AND Canon’s – LOVE them both! (And yes, love those puns too 🙂 🙂 🙂 )!

    Your sunflowers look great! I wish we’d remember to plant some this year. We had great ones last year, but when the garden went up I missed the seed packet so better luck next year for us. 🙂
