I love taking photos for blogs, especially when I am travelling. I am not a great fan of using my phone, as I like to control that I have using my camera. I’ve had a few cameras in my time. When I first went to China I can’t recall what camera I have, but I know I bought a little Samsung camera in China. I always carry it with me but it is not my favourite.
My Canon was next. It was an SLR – heavy monster, which I loved using, but eventually, I got sick of carrying such a huge load. I always travel with a laptop, so carry that and the Canon became too heavy and awkward, especially as I get older and nearly always travel on my own.
I do usually like taking my own photos and have plenty but occasionally I need a pic of something that I do not have in my wide collection. There are many sites to choose photos from, but I choose to use Unsplash.com.
Also, I have decided to add to their collection of photos.
I have moved around a bit – house sitting and renting where I can. Once I was a member of a great camera club, and even submitted photos, some of which were highly regarded. I found the camaraderie and friendship great. And I learned so much. It was great to be able to approach another member who used the same brand of camera to seek assistance too.
I like using Unsplash.com, but not always can I find the right photos. There is a collection of Australian photos, but I’ve identified some “gaps” in the collection. I have taken some photos at a historical village, which I hoped to add to my contribution, but I’m having trouble downloading from the camera. Maybe I will eventually get it done.
I have several blogs, so my photos are “out there”.
Are there any fellow “camera addicts” reading this?
