Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge – 05/23/17

This is actually a beautiful light orange rose I found at my mother-inlaw’s house on Mother’s Day. The flower was almost perfectly formed and still had all the full color on display.

I captured this with my Droid Maxx and this is an untouched photo.

B-W rose This is actually a beautiful light orange rose I found at my mother-inlaw’s house on Mother’s Day. The flower was almost perfectly formed and still had all the full color on display.

I captured this with my Droid Maxx and converted it to black & white using Microsoft Word.

This is one of the three Clematis plants that remain from my time as a greenhouse owner. Before that time I had this pure white one that I still have not been able to find to replace the one we had to leave behind when we moved.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Nature

017.jpgLast year a friend and I posted flower pictures on Facebook every day for about 45 or so days. We began on May 1st just like we have this year, so I though I would just use that photograph here. My friend says she knows this as The Star of Bethlehem.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: MACRO

Is there anyone who follows me around here that doesn’t know I love taking pictures yet? Before digital cameras came along I took far less photographs due to the results of the limited technology to that time. I had never had a camera without a fixed lens, meaning I did not have the ability to self-focus. So, many of my photographs were blurry or half-shots and the frustration caused me to avoid taking some shots I easily snatch now.

Another upgrade is the fine lens attached to smart phones these days. The last two times I visited Belize on mission trips I took several more photos because my phone was constantly at the ready. Any time I take my miniature Sheltie out for a walk there is the potential for a good photo opportunity.

As Allan said with his post I am unsure if this is Macro or just a close up, but I liked it and thought it could serve the purpose of a macro shot.

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge – Nature

Of the 822 photos within my cell phone’s gallery 90% are of nature, so trying to pare down the lot to a single photo in response to Sally D’s mobile photography challenge was going to be difficult In the end I settled on two. The first is what I see as a miniature daffodil of some sort, although I am only guessing. If you know for sure please enlighten me.

The second I captured in a whiskey barrel planter downtown last Saturday after a long and hard day of outside work on Saturday. I am so used to the leafy look of tulips I was struck by this specimen. Again, if anyone has knowledge of this variety please share.
