I have always felt that it is best to take fewer shots. By this I mean that once you get the image move on to the next, no need to shoot multiple frames. I guess this extends back to my days of film when every frame cost me money. Now in the age of digital to many photographers feel the need for FPS and the rapid fire idea. Now there are situations where this might be necessary, but to me that is mainly at times when the subject is moving at rapid speeds. For most other types of photo's I think patience, waiting for the right light/moment press the shutter and move on is the best approach. For me the example of the previous 4 days of photo's illustrates my point.
July 24 I was having a down day so I decided to take a long 10km walk along Nose Hill here in Calgary. I just needed to do some thinking and only had my iPhone with me. It was a blustery day and I probably walked past many photographic opportunities as I was not in tune with the surroundings. Near the end of my time on the hill I sat down on a rock to catch my breath. I looked down and saw these wild roses in front of me. Using my body to shadow them from the harsh sun I took one shot with my iPhone and came away with a capture I enjoy.
