Cool New Winter Pictures

I'm finally coming out of my winter slumber thanks to some urging in my comments section. After several months of a messed up back I'm starting to get out for a little bit at a time now. I'm going to have to take it slow, but I think I can do more and more each time. This first time I was able to get out to just a small bit of nature to test out my new camera.

You've read about me obnoxiously bragging about my phone camera for the past two years, but I have recently had to admit that there are better ones now. It felt terrible to know that and not have the very best. I was deeply ashamed I tell ya.

My previous phone was a Windows Phone, a brand nobody else ever knew existed. That being my only smart phone, I didn't know what I was missing. I decided to get a brand new Android phone this time, a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

I don't necessarily want this to be a commercial for my new phone, but my little nature trip was kind of uneventful. I must say that I didn't know what I was missing with my old Windows phone. This new phone has everything my old one had and a whole lot more. That's kind of why I chose it.

Maybe I shouldn't sit here and describe all the cool features to you. You've probably already read enough. You're saying to yourself, "Okay, big guy, so you got a new phone. I have a phone too." I guess what I'm leading up to here is that I took these pictures with my fancy new phone. See? the phone is a little relevant here.

This was the first time I've been able to try out the new phone camera. It did okay the first time out even though the pictures are drab winter stuff. I'll see if I can get something cooler next time. I have lots of pictures of my dog, but you've seen her before. Besides, she's kind of upset that she never got a response from that time she was begging everybody for a million dollars.

In a way the newer phone cameras are better than a good bigger camera. My new one has as many features as my big camera except it doesn't have the zoom lens. It focuses on closeup objects much better than the big one. I forgot to get closeups on my little trip. Maybe next time. I'll talk to you later.

Oh, if you're a geek like me and really want to know more about my phone just ask me in the comments section. I always reply to questions.


  1. I'm glad to see you are getting out and about. A bum back is a terrible thing.

  2. How cool you have a new and better phone camera! Glad your back is feeling better!

  3. well...this is surely a look inside the woods in winter!! it's good to get outdoors, no matter the view!!

    i have an iPhone and rarely use it for pictures, i'm not sure why as it takes amazing pictures. i guess i always forget that it does. if i don't have the big, bulky one - i forget that i can use my phone!! a habit i guess!! i know the samsung take great pictures, better than the iPhone!!

    i hope the back gets better - that's such a "pain"!!! have a happy sunday!!

  4. Glad to see you're out and about, Ratty. Enjoy the new phone.

  5. Glaf to hear you got out. I always like getting a new electronic gadget. My phone takes ok pictures but I think my big camera takes better ones

  6. I haven't used mine much, but have fun sending a few pics on my phone. I haven't read directions, so not real sure how to send pics to my computer. My daughter posted me on facebook when I got my first smart phone a few years back saying I had finally gave up on my flip phone. Nice to see you stopping by.

  7. I am not a geek -- the other person who lives in this house holds the family title. But he does not blog. So I have no questions. But your phone takes wonderful pictures. I always carry my pocket camera and my phone with me and if only I could learn to use the phone I would lighten my load. But it is just one more thing to learn (see sentence 1 above). I'm glad you decided to emerge from your winter hibernation. Good to see you back.

  8. Looks like you got some good pictures with your new phone!

  9. Well, though coming back late, I feel really sorry, I am seeing something beautiful and interesting on your day dreaming.
    Life is made simple, just carry on.

  10. Hey Ratty, just trying to catch up with a few blogs and it's lovely to see you posting, I'm glad your back is a little easier...personally I've had enough of winter now...I really want to see some some colour and life outside!!

    Great pictures though.
