Simple Pictures 7

This past summer I finally go ta new phone.  I didn’t have too many requirements for it, other than I really wanted one that had a good camera.  I was told that the Samsung S7 (note the fire-starting note!) was the way to go.  I have not been disappointed, especially when it comes to up-close pictures.  The detail is better than any camera I’ve had before.

I’ve been away for about 4 months now – time to get back to posting a little more often!  This summer I worked almost every Saturday and stacked up over 400 hours of overtime.  However, I tried to get out and about when I could.  I spent a weekend exploring Traverse City, MI.  I’ve been frequently blown away by how beautiful Michigan is (having moved here from Iowa about a year ago) and Traverse City was no exception.  I have hundreds of photos from my 2 days there, but this remains one of my favorites.

Simple Pictures – 5

I went out to my favorite place in town the other night: the channel.  We had a beautiful day and as it got towards sunset the temps were still in the 40s.  The sun was shining brightly, which is unusual for Michigan winters.  I could tell early on that it was going to be a beautiful sunset and after a long winter with so few of those, I was excited.  I got in position with several others, and watched this beauty happen.

It would appear that my ‘Simple Pictures’ posts are something I enjoy doing as this is now number 4.  It would also appear that raindrops are a simple thing to me, because this is the 4th simple pictures post involving raindrops.  Not intentional, just something I realized.  I guess I enjoy the simplicity of a rain drop left over after the storm has rolled out.  They just hang out for a while, sometimes catching your attention as the sun makes them glisten.

Simple Picture – 3

I was in Illinois this past weekend checking out the Starved Rock State Park area.  Unfortunately, the weather was not very cooperative and it rained quite a bit.  Before heading home on Sunday though I was able to return to the park and check out some of the dirt paths.  While walking along the trail this leaf caught my attention.  More than 12 hours after the rain had ended, yet this leaf was still covered in rain drops.  Laying there undisturbed by all the people passing by.  Even the birds and squirrels canvasing the area hadn’t made it to this leaf yet.  I find it is often the most simple things in life that are the most interesting.

I love to take pictures and I definitely take plenty of them.  I’m always so thankful that I am in the digital age and don’t have to deal with film.  I can easily take 100 pictures of a sunset or a day out and about.  That would be about 4 rolls of film, plus the time waiting to get them developed.
