why did I take it?

No, I haven't turned into a thief. I'm talking about this photo: Now before you go and get all philosophical, the answer is not that deep. In fact, it's almost rhetorical.
Because I felt like it, that's why.

I went outside to have a cigarette (Yes, I know. Let it go.) and I just felt like it. That plastic bucket thing has been in that very spot since we first moved in two years ago. It was there when we arrived and it will be there when we leave. I don't know why I never bothered to throw it out. Perhaps because it isn't mine?
Anyway, I just thought the ivy looked cool on the wall and taking photos makes me happy so clickety-click and there you go.

Here's another one I tried to take of a raindrop in between showers yesterday: I'll keep trying on that one because it's not quite what I had in mind. Don't you just love digital photography?! I can take as many pictures as I like and the results are instant and don't cost anything.
Can you tell I have nothing of interest to say today?
Perhaps I'll try again tomorrow.

i LOVE my camera- and i have now started photographing the jerks who break the rules or cut me off in traffic... i'll be publishing them too- sans number plates and faces as usual- it's just such fun to see people jump when they see a camera!

What's in the bucket? Quite a good colour scheme you have going there: blue, purple, turquoise and green.

I pick up a disposable camera at Walmart when I want to take a picture of something. Sad, I know. hehe

btw- Nice pictures, Terri. :)

Lori said...

I like the raindrop one.

kyknoord said...

Same here. The depth of field in the raindrop shot is effective in drawing the eye to the drop in the centre.

Terri said...

Angel - Maybe you should start a second blog for people to submit pics of traffic offenders? Of course there's the whole slander/lawsuit/invasion of privacy thing but hey, it's a free world isn't it?

Nomad - What's in the bucket? Why, treasure, of course ;) Nah, actually its a plastic thingy that I presume would be used for building sandcastles because, like, we get so much beach weather here in Dublin. You might be onto something with the colour scheme comment; something kept drawing me to that little corner.

Jeff - Not at all. A click is a click is a click :)

Lori - Glad u like it!

Kyknoord - The camera itself is very clever. It has a setting for Macro and a setting for Aperture-priority and the rest I leave up to it. Took lots of wrong ones before this one and will definitely try again to get just the perfect shot. But thanks. It's good to know I got more-or-less what I was aiming for.

Love the raindrop picture. I haven't taken any opictures in ages - think it's time I did again...

Bosbefok said...

And who says smoking is bad for you..... Look at all the praise you get for Smokebreak activities .. :-)

BOOO guess who???
Hi Terri boy do I miss ya when I am gone. Luv the pics. I have been clicking and clicking with my new camera I love it!! Next time it rains here if it ever does I will try to get a raindrop pic. Yours is soo cool. :)

p.s.
I will never say a thing about you goin out for a smoke.

Terri said...

Spookie - I agree. You take good pics. I hereby designate it your job to take nice photos of SA for me and post them up for me to go "aaah" at.

Bosbefok - I can't believe I got that from you in writing!

Beads - Yay, you're back! Take a pic of your phone repair guys and next time your phone line gets cut you can post big "WANTED" ads all over the world until they come fix it ;)

jason evans said...

See, I totally jinxed it. Right after I got your reply about my comment posting problems, now it works. Figures. I'm glad to be back!!

I wanted to saw that I really like your raindrop photo. The light and rich colors are very striking.

Terri said...

Jason - LOL! That happens a lot. Your PC must've known the Terrifying Techie Terri was on the case - it heard me coming and fixed itself in anticipation :) Thx for the comment on the photo.

beadinggalinMS said...

Now that is an idea. This time the repair guy never showed up at the house, he just called to tell me it was fixed. Wonder why they didn't come down the house?? They probably have me red flagged somewhere at the phone company saying oh no not again let's put the new guy on the case. LMAO!!

p.s.
I am getting pics of the drive where the idiots hauling dirt in and out is cutting them to show ya. :)

Spookie the Warrior said...

Alrighty - I'll go and do it JUST FOR YOU!! Feeling all inspired and eager now - picture me in hiking boots armed with a camera!!!

ChittyChittyBangBang! said...

I am like you. I hate throwing things away, even when they are not mine.
Nice pics... I am never without my camera, which can be annoying to other people for some reason.

whatalotoffun said...

Nice photo's we had so much rain the past few days if you want to have a look there is some photos on my blog

Terri said...

Beads - That's my gal; u got 'em running scared LOL!

Spookie - Hm, that raises a slightly disturbing mental image, hehe!

Chitty - Nothing wrong with having a camera with you. It's all in the timing. Hubby may disagree in a couple of months though when we go away on a bike tour - I'll have him stopping every few minutes for a kodak moment haha!

Whotalotoffun - It never rains, but it pours in PE, eh?!
