Momerangi Bay, Queen Charlotte Sound – Part 2

Momerangi Bay, Queen Charlotte SoundWe weren’t quite finished with Momerangi Bay. Or it wasn’t finished with us. There was a lovely last morning to have to ultimately drag ourselves away from. Water, forest, sun, remote – a happy combination.

I’ve always been horrified to see people taking photos with their iPads. It just doesn’t look right. Holding up something that looks like a book with a massive screen on it. I could never see myself doing that. Then I got a tablet – an 8″ one. Which is a lot of fun and learning. And comes with a camera. So what do I do? I start waving it around and taking pictures with it. I could say it looks more like a very oversize phone. But crikey, it’s not much like my first camera, my Paxette Braun of 50 years ago (bought it with my paper-run pay!).

I did my coming out thing at Momerangi – not many people around so I didn’t feel so conspicuous. So there I was, waving my tablet around like a (small) book. I’ll say one thing for it. At least I can see the screen! I struggle with digital cameras without my glasses. I have to hold it so far away to focus on the screen that I can’t really see the screen.

And there’s the panorama thing. I do like panoramic pictures. I keep taking elaborate multi-photo panoramas on my camera cameras. Which I could stitch together using simple-enough software to make into panoramas. But I don’t get around to it. Whereas these phone/tablet cameras (and modern digital cameras) can do all that for you. Click – click – click – click -click and Kzam! Panorama sorted.

    Lovely pics and I agree with your comment about not being able to see with digital camera and cellfone as well. Tricky for me without my glasses on too
