WHY DOES THIS SEEM TO HAPPEN...

Right when you have one of those great "photo" moments, you realize your camera battery is low???

I took my kids to the park again on Wednesday and I took my handy dandy camera so we could take some cute shots on this bridge overlooking (dirty) water. Of course, I take two pictures and then it shuts down on me!

Well, thank goodness for my Blackberry!

I know these could have been way better if I took them with my regular camera, but I'm still thankful I was able to get these shots. With the help of Photobucket, I used the "Auto Fix" option and it made the color more vibrant!

Phylicia, Mocha, Miranda, & Daniel. DON'T FALL IN! SWINE FLU!

This is the shot where I wish I was able to use my regular camera!!! Love it! Oh..and after this shot, they all ran down the hill, and of course, Veronica falls, rips the knee part of her pants, and starts bleeding! That was our cue to go home...

Stunt Man always falls too. Poor baby I hope she is ok.
Your BB takes great pictures. I hate when my batteries die. I always carry a spare now.

That last shot is awesome!! Too bad someone got hurt:-(

Alicia that happens to me all the time no battery and it usually happens when my bil the photographer is around and then i get the "look".

Your blackberry did pretty good and your editing helped. I just printed a lot of photos taken with my big camera and I have to figure out a way to reduce motion, the camera is so heavy and I need to brace myself. Sorry to hear about Veronica's knee poor baby.

Mel said...

awesome shots on your blackberry even!!!!

mimi said...

Always happens to me. The other day I made sure to have new batteries only to forget to put the memory card in!

The photos came out nice, the last one is so cool!

Mrs. Chief said...

LOVe the last picture...such a great shot! yes, injury is ALWAYS a sign to go home!!!

Miti said...

I feel ya. When my battery dies a piece of me dies with it. (hehe) But, a picture taken with the cell is a whole lot better than no picture at all. AHHHHH...Isn't Technology a wonderful thing!!! I love last photo!! VERY COOL!!!

Kelli said...

Looks like a fun time at the park! I love the picture of all the kids on the hill! My camera battery always seems to be low right when my boys do something hilarious that I want to take a picture of!!

OH, I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who has camera troubles :o) But thank you for the reminder, I need to go charge my battery...NOW...or else I'll forget about it!

Darcie said...

Yeah, I probably would have taken that as a cue too!

Looks like you had a grand time...sorry to hear about the knee, thankfully they heal quickly.

Sara said...

I love that last one, so great! Doesn't that suck? That was me last week, brand new niece, mom's in labor, I grab my camera, which feels sort of light, and realize I left the batteries charging at home!

Leah said...

Your pics turned out great. I keep thinking I'm going to save up for a back up battery, but alas I have not done it. They're expensive aren't they?

JMBMOMMY said...

yes, hate when that happens!! With my new camera--it HAS to have the card...no internal memory..and I always forget it in the computer from uploading--so many times I take a ton of pics only to find out I really didn't b/c of no card--I get sooo mad! lol.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

The last shot is my absolute favorite! What a fun day you must have had!

Stephen Baird said...

hello,
thanks for visiting nikonsniper.
as you are a child of the King ... it's great to know He created all photographed. you are taking pictures very well now and have many more years left than me. you will naturally develop skill in different areas in new seasons of life. when i was younger i could not do what you are doing now with your pictures ... so keep at it ... you have great talent. keep proclaiming the name of Jesus.
