Needing Some Camera Time

I found myself in need of some camera time today,so since it was  beautiful day,I asked my sister to join me and off we went to the English Gardens and St.Vital Park in Winnipeg.
I got many pictures with my cameras,but also got a few with the iPhone.

 This first picture is from the English Gardens,all the rest are from St.Vital Park.

St.Vital Park has a beautiful display of flowers this year,so here are some scenes for your enjoyment.

 I think that these pictures prove that even if I had only had my phone with me,I could have still gotten some decent photos.

Cloudscapes with the iPhone

On a recent drive home from Winnipeg together with Steve and Kai,we were treated to spectacular cloudscapes.Both Steve and I were bemoaning the fact that our cameras were at home.
Fortunately we had our iPhones handy and still got some good pictures.

It seemed that the storms were going to the north and south of us and,except for a short shower,we were unaffected.I love those huge clouds.

A distant rain shower gives another chance at a picture.

Later that same evening the clouds parted long enough to light up the sky.

The sunset was a good one as well.

This was a day to learn again the lesson that we should make the best of every situation.

A camera doesn't make a great picture,anymore than a typewriter writes a great story.
