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

Canon S110 goes to town

After the attack in Bourke St. earlier this year the council has temporarily placed these concrete blocks to prevent vehicles entering pedestrian areas

                                                          Of course these attract attention

Some people are more creative and invest time and effort into their creations.

It is a pity about the hand rail running through his head
