Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – Camera

Sue W and GC are the hosts of Weekly Prompts

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”– Aaron Siskind

Wednesday Challenge – Camera from GC and SueW.

This week,  partner Susan and I invite you to write about the CAMERA/s you useTell us or show us. 

This week Susan and I challenge you to not only present your creative and artistic photo here but also tell us the type of camera used: cell phone, brownie, high tech or what have you. 

Feel free to interpret the challenge to suit you – Words, Pictures, Poetry, and Rhyme. 

Please tag Weekly Prompts


I am not a very good photographer. My photos are often fuzzy because I move the camera/ phone too soon. And I am not very keen to take pictures either. That is unless it’s one of my grandchild! If one of them is around and behaving cutely, I’ll take a few pictures. But the chances of them coming out good are not high.

One thing that changed my desire to take pictures wherever we went was a chance comment that I read somewhere. It said that when we see a thing of wonder and beauty, instead of enjoying it, we start taking pictures, and then the moment is lost to us. After reading this, I felt it to be too true. So instead of taking pictures from a camera or phone, I take pictures with my eyes and store them in my brain. And as you might have guessed, I don’t remember all the glorious sights that I have witnessed, but I sure remember that I enjoyed them at that moment.

  1. The photos are great! I have an iphone and I take obitus in live mode, which “fixes” the shaky blurriness!

    I’ve also heard about enjoying instead of photographing, however I have found that most of the pictures I’ve taken, I “remember when.”

  2. I agree with you Sadje, you take photos but you don’t see. I’m a avid photo taker but now when I go somewhere I make sure just too look as well as take my snaps

  3. Your photos are lovely Sadje, please do not stop taking them. As for shaky photos, tuck your elbows into your sides and after taking the photo, count to three before moving the camera again. That’s the way I taught the children in my school.

    I love taking photographs, using both a phone camera and a Sony DSLR, but my photos don’t always turn out the way I hoped.

    To some extent, we are all influenced by someone else’s thoughts, but in this case, I have to disagree with the quote, in the nicest possible way of course.

    So many times I’ve looked back at old photographs and exclaimed – “Oh, I’d forgotten all about this.” And It was such a treat to have the photographic reminder. It’s also lovely to revisit the images that I enjoyed seeing in the flesh as it were.

    Once again, I thank you for taking part in our challenge. 🙂

  4. I always like seeing your pictures. The best way to improve is to continue to take them. I think the pictures take us back longer then our memories do. It is all about balance in enjoying and capturing the time both.
