First star I see tonight

I wish . . .


I love the scent of this little jasmine bush that my daughter planted.

Of course, trying to take a close up with a point and click camera presents difficulties at times. The poor camera does not know whatΒ you are trying to focus on, so you sometimes get shots like the following.

Still, a little ingenuity on my part and I usually manage to snap what I want.

Below are two photos, which demonstrate the vagaries of my camera.

Jasmine Photo B

There’s not much to choose between them, except A is more gold and B more white. All I did was move a fraction to the right, and the light had changed enough for the camera to make these differences.

Myself, I prefer Photo A. I think it just feels warmer with the gold. I am surprised at this, because I prefer silver to gold in jewellery!

So, which do you prefer? Photo A or Photo B? You can say in the comments below and I’ll post the tally tomorrow.

      I guess the question was – choose the one you like – for whatever reasons. Maybe you like it because you think the photo is better – maybe just a gut feeling. Who knows why we prefer something?
      There seemed little difference to me, between A and B apart from that gold/white thing πŸ™‚ And I think – actually – the true representation was somewhere between the two!
      Thanks for casting your vote – it is duly recorded in the ‘A’s πŸ™‚
