Let's Throw it out There!

I love camera phones and there is no doubt they are rocking today's world. Whenever an important news story is breaking the first place I go is Twitter and Flickr to see history as it occurs. A lot of the photos are grainy and blurred and few would view these up to the minute shots as art, but many are real gems!

My first camera phone had a 2 megapixel camera. I took hundreds of photos with that camera and none of them are particularly good, although I did capture an interesting mood from time to time. My newest phone has an 8 megapixel camera, multiple settings and editing capabilities. Even so, I seldom use it for serious photography. This is my camera for fun, for experimenting and these are the pictures I throw out there...just to see what sticks.

The following images (with varying degrees of manipulation) are from four different phones!

  1. Hello Carol:
    We are complete cameraphobes and have not the slightest idea how to get a decent picture from our phone nor how then to get it into the computer.

    Your phone experiments are intriguing and we are particularly taken by the all white scene.

  2. Hello Jane and Lance ~ I am slowly learning, but way behind. My granddaughter runs circles around me!

    I'm so glad you liked the snow scene. I shot that from my upstairs window after a storm and processed the image so it would look like an old snapshot. Viewed on black, you would be able to see the white borders all those old photos used to have.
