Far and away the most popular image on my Flickr site.
Taken in May 2018 outside the Jacksonville (Florida) Ikea. A bright, cloudless sky made the perfect backdrop for the stark blue and yellow boxes that make up the exterior of the store. Recorded with my always with me Samsung Galaxy S8+.

A few images of the garden after some overnight thundershowers (storms).
After 15 years of weathering our cypress fence supports a wide variety of organisms. This image was taken with my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830. Even at 20.1 megapixels, the image doesn’t pop your eyeballs out of your head. ISO 200 but a super slow shutter speed. The limitation of the Sony is that it’s not at its best in lower light situations.
The same section of the fence but this image was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S8+
It’s hard to say which image is “better” as they are both technically correct. The Samsung shows a lot more processing and as a result, looks sharper. But is it better? The Sony shot is closer to capturing the realness of the scene.
Crepe myrtle blossoms – almost an unnatural pink but that’s the way they look. No post-processing. Sony Cyber-shot.
New growth – wonderful greens. Sony Cyber-shot.

Have a beautiful (and peaceful) day! – Chris

This image received no post-production except for a gentle crop and a slight exposure adjustment. It was late in the day so I’m sure the camera was doing its best to balance the available light with the need to focus and freeze the action. Sometimes the simplest of cameras are the best. I’m sure a more sophisticated DLSR or mirrorless camera would have captured a “better” image but who lugs those around 24/7?
