Pens:

Before I depart for my family vacation I was compelled to post one more image: my first iPhone 4s photograph. This inaugural shot is one of my first experiments with this addition to my photographic tool box.

The craze is thickly spreading across the world, and I am now part of this phenomenon: the smartphone as camera. And I said that I’d never purchase one of these marvels. Never say never–got me.

So we’re bound for new adventures and unknown discoveries. Be back the end of June or early July with images from vacationland.

Note: As always I welcome any comment about this post or any part of this blog.

    WOW, VERY INTERESTING PERSPECTIVE ON THE DANDELION. PLUS IT IS AN INTERESTING IDEA FOR AN EXPERIMENT IN GENERAL. SO MANY THINGS WE GET USED TO SEEING ONLY ONE WAY THAT WE HARDLY REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS MANY FACETED AND SOMETIMES AN DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE CAN OPEN UP A WHOLE NEW WORLD. THANK YOU FOR PRESENTING YOUR EXPERIMENT TO THE WORLD!!!

  7. So glad you are blogging….you have so much to offer!!

  8. Woo hoo! Congrats to you on biting the bullet and joining the trend. I, too, once thought there was no need for me to have an iPhone… until my phone died and it was time for an upgrade. I still have the 3GS and it works great, but can’t wait until the 5 comes out. Anyways, this photo is amazing! It’s abstract qualities make a tie-dyed like design… I find myself taking more photographs with my phone ever since I got an iphone… they aren’t perfect but you can catch the light really well. Great job! 🙂
