Wordless Wednesday: Pretty random

Nikon D800

I got a new camera — a Nikon D800 to be precise.

Why am I taking random photos of flower petals smashed onto the sidewalk? Well, that’s what you do when you get a new camera. You run outside and take images of the random stuff around you, because even random things look kind of pretty coming from a new camera, right? :)

    I’m totally laughing- that IS what happens with a new camera or really any new piece of gear. Even when I get a new lens filter, lens or anything else- I need to try it out & so I immediately snap a shot of the plant in my office. Congrats on the camera- excellent choice.

    This is an awesome picture! It doesn’t even come across as smashed up petals on the sidewalk – it just reads … beautiful … great job!

    I love that shot! The colors are so bold against the darker background! I love Wordless Wednesdays because it allows me an excuse to play with the camera and see what new shots I can create. And I love visiting to see what amazing things you can come up with too!

    Congrats on the new camera! I love the pictures of the petals :) I’m the same way with a new camera…run outside and find anything and everything to snap a picture of ;)

    I never would have thought to take a picture of that but come to think of it, it’s really pretty and unique!

    Beautiful!!! Your camera takes great pictures and you have a great eye.

    I agree. Even when your camera is 7 months old you can still be apt to take random photos, especially when your daughter uses it more than you! ;)

    Congrats on the new camera. Can’t wait to see more new pictures with it, and learn how well it does.

    Very, very pretty and yes, I’d be looking for anything to snap photos of as well!

    Oh, SO jealous of your new camera! Congratulations :)

    And you hit the nail right on the head; whenever someone gets a new toy, it has to be tried out right away! I like your random picture ^.^
