Thankful Tuesday For Totally Cool Technology

By

For the next ten days, Debbie Reynolds is hosting a fun challenge where she is asking us to post each day about something we are thankful for.   Well that should be easy.  We are all thankful for something - right?

 

I wanted to take a moment and share how thankful I am for cool instant technology afforded us today.

 

I remember back in the stone ages when the closes thing we had to instant photographs was a snap with a Polaroid Camera.  I loved how the picture came out and I watched with hopefully anticipation that my shot would be awesome.  

Now - with my iPhone 6 Plus - I am able to shoot anything and everything whenever the mood strikes.  

 

Since I am so enamored with the incredible pictures Mother Nature puts before me, this has been an incredible treat. 

 

This afternoon I was outside with "The Boys" and saw the sunshine streaming through this big pine tree.  Snap - Done!

 

No more running inside to grab my camera and hope that the scene is still there when I return!

this scene was yesterday at dusk

Hi Belinda, We have evolved. I remember even 5 years ago how people felt like they had to have a camera in tow. Now we have great cameras in our smartphones. The convenience cannot be beat.

Good morning Belinda,
Who woulda thought we'd be able to hold a computer and a camera in the palm of our hand.  Love technology!

Belinda Spillman - thank you for allowing me to reflect on something I have that I hadn't thought about before now. I've always enjoyed taking photos but digital is best and when you have an iphone, it's even better!!!

Your photos are just beautiful!!!

This technology is certainly a two edged sword Belinda Spillman . I am a techo freak but I absolutely hate it when my phone rings after 10:00PM.
