When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
Yesterday, when I getting ready to go to my daughter’s school, my neighbor beckoned me over to where he was standing…
He had his phone in hand, and asked if I could take a picture of his azalea bush.
Neighbor: “I don’t know anything about these technology gadgets, Opal… but I know you do” Can you help me?”
Me: Sure, I said I took his phone…
His cellular phone is an older model; definitely not a smart phone; but it was fairly easy for me to figure out how the camera worked, and so I snapped photos of his lovely azalea bush. He stepped into a few of those pictures. While taking the photo, he told me that this azalea bush is over fifty years old. It was given to him by his father. His father has been dead for at least twenty-five years.
The above photo wasn’t taken with his camera; I used my Nikon D80. While taking the pictures with his phone, I noticed the camera wasn’t taking great pictures, and I told him I’d come back later, if he liked, and take additional pictures with my Nikon D80. He accepted; this is one of the numerous shots I took.
It’s hard not to miss this bush; it’s gorgeous and this azalea bush is something I look forward to seeing every Spring; so it’s nice to have a photo.
Later today, I’ll load them onto a disc and give it to him, that way he can get them developed if he chooses to do so.
