Why Snapshot?

To my mind there is a vast difference between a photograph and a snapshot.
A photograph is made, the photographer has a vision for the image in mind and sets about creating it. Waiting for the right light or weather conditions and often visiting the scene several times to get it just right.
A snapshot on the other hand is taken as the opportunity arises, often with minimal thought. It is what we do on holiday, when out with family, it aids us in remembering those moments long past.
Having said that, many snapshots are perfect, just like the postcard, whilst some photographs, despite the time and effort, look like a hurried snapshot.
I take mainly snapshots, but occasionally, I get a beautiful photograph.

More of my images can be seen on smugmug and on flickr

A Couple From 2006

A couple of images taken with my Canon G6 back in 2006. This camera produces  wonderful colour and it's flip/rotational LCD makes these types of images easier to achieve. I do still have this camera and use it occasionally but perhaps all too infrequently.
