The picture isn't always where you think

Fiona's shot of a silhouetted gull soaring above The Falls.

I took my 5-year-old granddaughter, Fiona, to The Falls yesterday. She loved it and immediately asked for "her" camera. She has claimed my aging Canon S90 point-and-shoot as her own.

She shot this and that, and here and there, and she even shot almost straight up into the sky. I was puzzled. The Falls were immediately in front of her and yet she was swinging about excitedly shooting pictures.

But Fiona realized there were more pictures to be had than just falling water and a rainbow in the mist. There was blue sky and soaring gulls.  And Fiona shot pictures of these things too. See lead photo above.

I'm sure everyone at The Falls Saturday came away with a shot like the one on the right. The image that was missed  by many was the rainbow in the mist above the falls with soaring gulls adding extra interest.

Fiona didn't miss this picture. Now, open your eyes to all the picture possibilities around you and you, too, can shoot like a 5-year-old.

Fiona also shot The Falls proper. Nice pic but expected.
