Photographic Disappointment

Have you ever seen the perfect series of pictures materialize before your eyes and either not had your camera with you, or taken the pics only to realize that they didn’t come out right later?  The latter used to happen a lot in the days of actual film.  My term for this common occurrence is “Photographic Disappointment.”

This weekend’s photographic disappointment happened when I decided not to take my DSLR with me for errands and had to resort to using my iPhone to take the pics that would have been far better if taken with my “real” camera.  Or even my old “real” camera (my Canon Elph Powershot).

Even worse is when I upload those iPhoto pics to Instagram and Flickr and see the comparison between direct upload to a dedicated photo site vs. a limited quality social media photo site.

Direct upload (no editing done):

Instagram (with in-App editing to try to make them look better):

I REALLY wish I had taken these with my DSLR, but the iPhoto images will have to serve as a reminder of the beautiful morning we had on Saturday…and a reminder to always bring at least one of my “real” cameras.
