As a photographer, I am thankful for my two digital cameras, both Canon Powershot models. If I had plenty of money at my disposal, I’m sure I’d have a few more cameras, along with tons of accessories. But for now, I’m thankful for what I have because these two cameras allow me to capture a few glimpses of the nature around me, such as the images below. Make sure you click on each image to see a larger photo.

I’m thankful I can take dozens of photos of sea jellies and actually get a few decent pictures. If you’ve ever tried taking photos of jelly fish, you know what I’m talking about!

I’m thankful I could take a photo of this beautiful blue dragonfly. Do you know that dragonflies can fly for hours without resting?

I’m thankful I was able to take a photo of this very cute pigmy goose at the San Diego Safari Park last week. Look at its beautiful colors!

Finally, I’m thankful to once in a while be able to spot nature’s life cycle, in this case a mourning dove sitting on its nest and not moving a feather.

Finally, I’d like to add that I’m thankful for WordPress allowing me to display my photos to the whole wide world for free, with just a few clicks of the mouse. That’s pretty awsome. Thank you, WordPress!

    I thought of you while I was in Colorado over Thanksgiving, because while I was at Red Rocks, I had to snap photos with my iPhone. It didn’t do the place justice. πŸ™‚

      The camera sensor in the iPhone isn’t that bad but it still doesn’t beat using a real digital camera where you can adjust a few settings. Better than nothing, though!

  2. Yes! And you take beautiful photos! I am a storyteller, but found myself so drawn to photography that through WordPress I have found new ways to tell my stories, with visual aids! I too am thankful for that. You have a great talent!

      Thank you very much! I love how the right picture can enhance a story. One great example is the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (the movie Hugo is based on it). It’s a very unique way to combine pictures and words to tell a story.

      Thanks for stopping by and feel free to come back anytime.

      • My son is a graphic artist, and he says he has heard of that, even checked it out from the library, but didn’t have a chance to read it before it was due. You have renewed his determination to be sure to read it. I will keep in touch.

        • mpejovic says:

          I bet your son would love it. Selznick alternates between using words and using images to tell the story. When they tell me pictures are worth a thousand words, you really understand it when you read this book. You should read it too, it’s a beautiful story!
