I had the camera out for some knitting pictures the other day, which led to a couple of pictures of my flowers, which led to wandering around my neighbourhood taking pictures of other peoples flowers.

People get freaked out when I do this for some reason. “You’re not even looking through it!” they say. “What if it’s a bad picture!!??” Well, what if it is? It’s just a picture. And I know where the delete key is located. And wandering around taking shots at random is really fun. It sort of frees you up – no pressure to take a “perfect” picture if you’re just blasting away at anything. I don’t even look at them until I get home and download everything. Then it’s all a big surprise. What did I get? Maybe a shot of my shoe.
