My Sunday Photo – Week 46.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After reading a fantastic new book set in Prague (review of A Year And A Day by Isabelle Broom coming tomorrow) I was inspired to fish out the photos I snapped when I visited the magical city many moons ago.

Once I’d looked at them I got a bit hooked scrolling through various albums. What struck me is that I’ve enjoyed taking photos for far longer than I realised (and that’s only going back to when I got my first digital camera).

If you’d have asked me I would have said I was bitten by the bug when I got my DSLR in 2012 but, while I’m not suggesting they are anything special, I was clearly attempting to take nice photos long before that.

Anyway, there hasn’t been much time for taking pictures this week so I thought I’d include some old shots from various places. I was very lucky to be able to travel for work as well as holidays.

I’ve had two digital point and shoots, a Fuji FinePix (2650) and my trusted Canon Powershot (SD750), which travelled with me. The Canon, especially, took a bit of a battering in backpacks but always did me proud so much so I’ve kept hold of it (I turned it on last night and it still has battery!).

As I was looking through them I kept thinking what fun I’d have with my big camera now. I’ll just have to go back!

When did you first realise you were interested in photography? Are there any places you would like to go back and photograph again?

  1. I’ve been interested in photography for a long time, namely when my first child was born. What surprises me the most is my growth. I’ve definitely gotten better over the years which makes me happy, but then I can also feel like I need to go back and redo or edit some from the early years.

    1. Technology has also moved on so far. I just have the basic editing software that comes with the Mac but even tinkering with some old shots with that makes them look better. It must be a nice feeling to see your progression.

  2. What a great selection of photos! I’ve been interested in photography since I was 18 and got my first SLR camera. I used to be quite a good photographer and I was always taking photos in places like the supermarket, which wasn’t the done thing even when my boys were small. But now it feels like the rest of the world has caught me up and overtaken me and my skills haven’t really improved since I was 18!

  3. Lovely selection of photos Tara. I can’t pinpoint when I first became interested in photography. Oh there are so many places I would like to return to. But also new places I would like to go to – like Prague.

    1. Your camera would be very happy in Prague. One of the main characters in the book I mention is a photographer and reading the descriptions of the photos she takes makes me want to grab my passport and go 🙂

      1. Oh brilliant! I loved it. I’m still thinking about it more than a week later. Will you review it too? I’d love to hear what you think of it.

  4. You’ve taken some amazing photos Tara. My particular favourites are the Tanzania one and the boat in Zante. I’m hoping to go back to Africa in the future with Alex to show him (and the hubby) where I was born and I’m fanatical about old fishing boats so that picture is right up my street. Thanks for sharing them xx #mysundayphoto
