National Camera Day


“I’m not spoiled…oh wait, yes I am!”



   It’s National Camera Day and a perfect day to celebrate with Sugar the Golden Retriever and Dachshund Nola’s Black & White Sunday’s blog hop.  Pictures have captured our lives and world for hundreds of years.  It was only a few years ago that we had to buy film, take our photos, turn them in at a store, and wait a week while praying they turned out decent.  Now, instead of lugging around bulky cameras, we have the ability to take photographs with our tiny cell phones.  It is one of the great advancements of our time.  Celebrate the camera today by enjoying these B & W photography blogs, and then take some great shots of your own.

  4. It is a wonderful thing to be spoiled, isn't it? Had no idea about national camera day. Where did all the film and flashcubes go anyway?

  5. That photo is so precious!
    Cameras have really come a long way, haven't they? I used to dream of being a professional photographer, and there was something special about working in a darkroom and watching those photos appear. That's one thing missing to it these days. Over the years, I got away from photography and now I really need to re-learn my skills but just can't seem to find the time to do so!

  9. The invention of the digital camera has revolutionized picture taking. Without them there wouldn't be blogs either. Happy snapping.

  14. Oh National Camera Day... how great! And Pierre you look stunning! Y'know it doesn't seem like 5 minutes since I was at college 'agitating' film in stinky chemicals only for them NEVER to turn out right! lol We worked in B&W film too, because we didn't have the facilities for colour processing... Photography used to be such an expensive hobby, we are so lucky that practically everybody can enjoy it these days!
    Hugs, Carrie and pups! x

  16. Purrrfect! We think our mom celebrates this day EVERY day. *sigh*

    We tried to get our mom to follow you back on Twitter but she is in the middle of nowhere Texas with spotty cell reception, and couldn't figure out how to find you from the mobile app. We'll make her do it when she returns, we pinky swear!

  22. Beautiful photo of Pierre, gorgeous pose and lovely B&W tones. I remember my first digital camera I bought about 16 years ago cost more than my 2nd hand DSLR did a year ago. And it's still being used by a girlfriend :) Times sure have changed though. Yay for cameras and making memories!
