There has been loads of rain recently after months of dry. Suddenly this flower popped up from the nothingness. ( is that even a word) almost over night. It is rather a beautiful flower and it doesn’t last long and if I can get it right there will be some more photos of it over the coming days.
Yes, maybe, no, probably not.
Well, there is not a fixed answer to this, it is more of a budget choice, age of current camera gear, etc. but if you are in doubt, or like the majority of people, your budget just doesn’t give you enough leeway at the moment, then probably not.
So instead how about trying out new things with your current camera gear to spice up life a little. Maybe set yourself a monthly challenge. I am currently doing a macro month and will soon do a black and white challenge, this also will help me with my Photoshop and Lightroom skills. If you have any other ideas for themed months, please leave a comment.
I would imagine that the majority of us really don’t need a new camera, but we are bombarded on a daily basis with new updates from the major camera makers, Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc with their new cameras, more expensive and faster lenses, what they do and how much better they are than the models we already have.
GAS – Gear acquisition syndrome
Even I am constantly viewing videos on you tube and blogs and Facebook posts by camera users and I am in awe at the amount of gear some photographers have, how much it must have cost them and what they they are going to buy next. Are all these people pro photographers or just do they have so much money that they have to spend it?
Sure, I would love a better camera, and some faster lenses, specially gear with faster auto focus but it is just not happening at the moment, maybe in the future after I have finished paying off the current gear I have.
But lets just say you do go out and buy some new upgraded gear, does this make you a better photographer, probably not and as you will more than likely be out of money and there won’t be many trips in the near future.
So the moral of the story or at least the moral of my opinion, make the most of what you have, learn to use it, what are it’s pro’s and con’s and this way you can become a better photographer, as well as learning to use an editing software.

Moss, it grows all over but you don’t always pay any attention to it as it if rather small. We have a wood pile outside and there is loads of moss and if you look closely it is actually quite beautiful.
So, finding different photos from different angles is beginning to become a challenge at only half way through the month. But these rose buds should provide some interesting shots over the coming days.
Second day of not having flowers in the macro month, I guess I see what I see.
Hubby was doing some repairs on the car and he took the spare wheel out and put it on the grass and just in the centre was a dandelion popping up thought the middle, I thougt it was rather cool. 90 mm macro lens
Carnation, love them, such lovely colours, this has been budding for a few days now and there are a few other buds around it, so I am sure there will be more photos of this carnation in the future.
