My brother and I brought our nephews to the barber for their regular haircut. I saw these blooming red flowers and just had to take out my Sony Cybershot camera phone again. And one of the photos was taken by my 5 years old niece. Sony Cybershot camera phone is indeed quite easy to use. I just have to give my 5 years old niece some simple instructions and I was amazed at how her shot turned out.
Could you tell which shot was taken by my 5 years old niece? And what is your reason for choosing the particular shot?
Now to unveil the mystery: The second one is the one taken by my 5 years old niece. Some of you have made a logical guess that the first photo is the one taken by my niece as children like close up. You could have been right if not for a small drain between the flower and my niece. Her arms were not long enough to get a close up at the flower.
There were some of you who guessed the second one because there are more details in the first shot. I must say you are absolutely right as I had intentionally gone up very close to the flower and set the macro mode to take the shot. Yes, the Sony Cybershot camera phone has a macro mode that allows you to take decent close up shot.
So have you guessed the right one? 🙂

i think it’s the first and the closer shot why? because kids tend to shot more closely than grownups because of their excitement over things! happy ww! mine is up at http://my-crossroad.com/2009/04/ww-floodway-houses.html and http://racelyn.com/2009/04/ww-buddies.html
races last blog post..:WW – Buddies
I’d choose the first one simply because my 7 year old likes to take photo very close up to the object. 😛

@ Race, good deductions; I did notice my niece and nephews like to come up close to me when they want to look at something that I was holding on to. As to whether you have guessed it right? I will be revealing it tomorrow. 😉
I think the second one is shot by your niece. Because the first one is better zoomes and clicked and the second one seems like it has just been clicked without much adjustment like usually the small kids do.
Nope…can’t tell…but it is a very beautiful flower!
Chs last blog post..Wordless Wednesday – 4-8-09
Both photos are great! I really can’t even tell which might have been taken by your niece!
Beautiful flower! That must be some camera phone! I guess the second one (by your neice) – just because it is a little blurrier (but still nice)
Sues last blog post..WW #50 – "First Bike Ride"
@ Ch, indeed, it is quite charming. 🙂
@ Stephanie, it’s hard to tell eh? Either my niece took great picture or I took bad picture 😀
What an amazing photo. Your phone takes some really great pictures. You can’t even tell it was taken by a 5 year old. Looks like you might have a future photographer on you hands. Thanks so much for stopping by and your awesome comment on EC. Take care.

Oh I can’t wait until I have red blooms in my garden.
Beth Fs last blog post..Challenge: Cozy Mystery Challenge 2009
@ Beth, I believe pretty soon you will see the red blooms in your garden. 😀
I’m guessing the top photo. It looks to have been snapped from a lower angle than the bottom photo, suggesting a smaller person took it.

Stunning! Back here, we call it Gumamela. 🙂
Modern Moms last blog post..WW – Something to be thankful for
It’s beautiful. When we were kids, we would collect those and pound them until they release a sticky juice and mix it with soap and water. And blow lots of bubbles. 🙂
Marias last blog post..Wanna join me?
It’s the second one for me. I have to agree with Aditya. The first one looks like it was more detailed, more of you actually. 😉
Joel and I would like to thank you for sending us love and prayers. 🙂
Take care and have a nice day.
Lizas last blog post..Looking Fresh
Both shots are very very pretty.
feefifotos last blog post..Passover Starts Tonight
Pretty! We used to have those in our backyard! 😉
the first one! kids tend to like to take close up shots and also straight in the face of the object (unlike the 2nd one) and yepps the 2nd one is taken from a higher angle ^^
btw ur niece must be really smart to take either shots xD
Shu Fens last blog post..I Read Dirty Harry Potter Fanfiction!
@ Shu Fen, your deductions are pretty logical as in what the others were guessing. It definitely made a lot of sense. Especially that was what I had observed myself about kids; they like to snuggle up close to you. Most kids are very smart today and some technologies are also becoming easier and easier to handle. 🙂
@ Aditya, your guess sounded logical too. 🙂
@ Sue, I didn’t notice the second one was blurred. You have sharp eyes indeed. 🙂
@ Michelle, yeah, the phone can take some decent photos but it gave me some frustrated moments. I was surprised that the shot that my niece took turn out pretty well too. The phone is really easy to use. I like my SE 😉
@ Reg Fife, that is very logical. The second photo does seem like it was taken from a top angle. 🙂
@ Fitness Diva, I’m sure it was a pleasant sight before when you had them in your backyard. 🙂
@ Modern Mom, thanks for letting me know the name. I was still wondering what is the name for this flower. 🙂
@ Maria, that is something very interesting. There are so many interesting things to learn. Probably that’s why the saying, “the more I learned, the more I realized how little I know.” 🙂
@ Liza, good guess and very logical deductions. You are most welcome for the prayer; it is the least I can do.
@ feefifoto, thank you. 🙂
Those were taken by a phone?!! I need a new phone then. 🙂 I would call it a Hibiscus, but I’ve looked up Gumamela and it’s the same thing.
Don’t worry at all about my earlier comment going into spam and being deleted. I have all sorts of things happen when I try to moderate comments. It works differently every time!
A.s last blog post..Garden jewels
@ A, yeah, that was taken by a phone. I’m using a Sony Ericsson Cybershot phone. It does produce pretty decent photo but still have a lot of limitation. In anyway, I am glad to have it around me at all time so that I can take any impromptu shot when the need arises. Thanks for letting me know that this is a Hibiscus. I like flowers but am bad in identifying them and remembering the names. 🙂
I remember using this flower when making bubbles as a kid. 🙂
@ Vikki, you are the second person telling me about making bubbles with this flower. It must be a lot of fun. 🙂
As They Grow Ups last blog post..PZI Jeans Review
@ As They Grow Up, thank you and have a great weekend ahead. 🙂
Lovely pix! I really like the color.
On my ghostly niece photos, I slowed down the shutter speed and followed her in action as she ran through the room (or twirled around). It’s pretty easy and she’s active enough that I had a lot of opportunity to play with this technique. 😀
Thanks for dropping by.
Diannes last blog post..BORing
@ Dianne, thanks for letting me know that. I didn’t know just purely using a camera can achieve that effect. I was thinking it must have been kind of photo-shopped. 😀
Hey that’s beautiful. You know the spring can have it’s many benefits.

@ WAHG, always look on the bright side of life. 🙂
uw the close up of the flower makes it look huge! very cool
Tinas last blog post..LOOKING AT THE SKY: A bit of photoshop magic
@ Tina, I thought it looks pretty big too. The flower itself was quite big. If I remembered correctly, it was almost as big as my palm. 🙂
No. However, my mother-in-law constantly beheaded the people she photographed. Maybe it was a message. The kids did better than her with simple cameras and disposables. The shot is beautiful. I must ask hubby to tech me about that setting so I can do a better job next time I visit the gardenias.
@ Pat, for a while I was shocked when I read your MIL ‘constantly beheaded the people she photographed.’ Thank you. I believe you can do it too. 🙂
I love gumamela. We have a lot of that back in the Philippines.
Enjoy your weekend. 🙂
@ Grace, I remembered seeing it in my Science textbook when I was young but have not seen it in real life until that day. 🙂
Great post! I loved your pictures, they are very beautiful. I enjoyed this post very much, it definately brightened my day! I think im going to go try and grow some red flowers like this, they would make awesome little presents for my loved ones! Anyways, I look forward to reading some interesting posts! Thanks, Whitney
Backyard Greenhouse Kitss last blog post..Juliana Premium 9.9 Greenhouse
@ Whitney, thank you.
I think kids tend to take closer shots to get the shot right. Kids makes sense out of a lot of things.
@ Jermaine, this is probably true for most kids. 🙂
