Iphone Photos & A Freebie

Photography is my second love, and although I can't always carry my DSLR or my pocket camera, I always have my Iphone close at hand. It's taken a bit of time to learn how to play with some of my photo apps, but sometimes I'm very pleased with the results. For the record, all of the pictures in this post were taken with my Iphone.
Admittedly, I'm the crazy lady who absentmindedly leaves her cart in the middle of an aisle at a big box store in a rush to snap a picture when I spy something that catches my artistic eye. It doesn't matter if it's fruit or flowers. If it's colorful enough to capture my attention it's camera worthy.

Restaurants are another source of inspiration. Using my camera phone has become so second nature to me, my sweet husband doesn't move or question me when I say, "Ohhhh! Wait a minute!" as our food arrives.

And then there's always the unexpected . . . . I love the unexpected!!! I spied this bumper sticker in a parking lot recently. Thank goodness I had my cell phone at the ready, and thank goodness that my son was with me to play 'lookout' as I snapped this great quote (otherwise, I'd have been road kill!).

The next time you see something that captures your creative fancy, snap a photo with your mobile phone. It's easy  and fun . . . . and . . . it just may become addictive!

Your Freebie!

Wishing you a very  artful weekend!

OMG! Those pics are gorgeous....and way better than the 8 year old digital camera that we let my daughter use!

I really like the borders on your pics, too! An iPhone app also?

An artist with the camera too!!..or in this case--phone. Who would have even thought that we could get shots like this from a phone!!! (let alone being able to have a phone with us--in our purse no doubt :)

I'm running horribly late this entire week. So getting here late to visit you is about on par for me. My friend Kathy took pictures of the fish at the restaurant last Friday (I posted Tuesday), but I doubt she did anything with the images. She was just trying out her phone, I think. And since I don't have a cell phone, I have to depend on that camera I have that takes really bad photos. I'm so, so, so impressed with what you can do with your phone. I also stop in the middle of aisles to shoot a good image. But mine don't turn out as lovely as yours. Such beauty in nature and humble things. You see that beauty so well, too.

I may have to use that freebie as my new favorite. That little girl I use all the time may have met her match! Thanks so much for her.

This quote is priceless - so pleased you had your iphone with you! All your photos in the post turned out really well. I'm starting to get in the habit of taking my snap and shoot everywhere with me. Like you, never know what you might see! Thank you for the freebie girlfriend!
