Kodak Pocket Instamatic 100, First camera for the ‘Pocket Instamatic’-Film. Presented in this box on the ‘Photokina’ fair in Germany, 1972 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I’ve been taking photos my whole life – like many of you.  My first camera was a little Instamatic that came in a yellow box with a flash cube (very similar to the one pictured).  Click and wind, then send the finished film off to be developed.

I took pictures of my cat and dog mostly, but also my backyard and some special outdoor places.  The pictures were pretty crummy looking compared to what we have to work with these days, but I am still a point and shoot kind of gal.

My kids gave me a nice Sony a year or two ago and I’m having fun getting shots of my new house.  Now that I am planting gardens I will be growing flowers and veggies to use as my subjects.

Recently I got a shot of my strawberry plant and added it to Pixabay where it was chosen as a front page image!    Whoo hoo… I am excited!

I haven’t added many photos to their site yet, but I go there to find pictures to use for my work. They offer free, public domain images (that means you can use them for anything – no strings attached).  I love that the folks there have high standards for approving uploaded photos so you will find only good quality images at the site.

If you have tons of  pictures and want to show them off, consider joining Pixabay and share them with the world!  And go see my strawberry.  Thank you Simon and the Pixabay gang.

    Congratulations, Pam! That is a fantastic image; photographic art! My definition of art is anything that makes you want to look…and look…and look some more. It’s easy to see why it was chosen. It’s an image to meditate by. I’m bookmarking Pixabay for future reference.

      Thank you Tom. That is the strawberry the raccoon stole – just as it was getting really red!
