Another pretty shot!

You have taken some lovely shots of water lilies! Where are they growing?

In the river that runs through this town there are some yellow water lilies that flower towards the end of June beginning of July. Impossible to get close enough to get any photos of them.

Balcony...when I go out and about I carry my camera, and living in thye country I see many interesting things to take pics of. The White (and pink) water lilies I took in a man made pond near here

The spatterdock (yellow lilies) I took in a pond created by a dam about 3/4 mi from the house! It is a place where people launch their little boats and canoes!

All these fowers were within 10 ft of the shore...I just have a wonderful camera!

Since getting a new mobile phone this year I have a great camera! The phone's camera is better than my digital camera except it doesn't have a flash. But it does record very good videos & with sound which again is much better than my camera. An even bigger plus is that I carry it in my pocket every time I go out & don't have to remember to pick it up & making sure I carry a few extra batteries.

I take even more photos now than I did with the digicam. Lol! In fact most photos of my balcony taken during this year have come from the phone!

My cell phone does not take good quality photos, plus I have no way to download them to the computer!

Doesn't your phone come with a USB cable? Mine does & I connect it to the computer & can upload or download photos between the computer & phone.

No my phone had a USB cable available to buy aside from the phone, at the time I purchased the phone I couldn't afford it. And now the phone is out of date and the cable is no longer available (or so I was

But it is time to replace the maybe the new one will have the capability

The same happened to me with my previous phone. I got it at least 5 years ago & had taken many photos with it. Problem was I couldn't get them off! I did delete a few but not enough. Then my wife & I came up with an idea. As both our phones had infrared ports we were able to transfer my photos to her phone & from her phone to the computer, she did have a USB cable & could connect to the PC.

But at the beginning of this year I accidentally dropped my phone & from that moment on it never seemed to charge up properly & over a few weeks it discharged & I was unable to keep it charged up. I managed to get a few photos on to my wife's phone but after just a few it would no longer connect. I started to keep it turned off but it was obvious I was going to lose it.

I had intended to get myself a new phone for my birthday in May. At the end of May my yearly contract came up for renewal & that seemed the time to upgrade. In Feb it finally gave out so I got myself a very cheap model on pay-as-you-go. Only thing is it had no camera. :-(

My wife's phone contract was coming up for renewal during April so she got a new model & gave it to me. I specifically asked for a model with a USB connection. The only problem it has is the lack of a flash.
