Behind the cell-phone power curve

An amazing photo taken today with my new iphone - I'm a little behind the telephonic power curve and on a journey of discovery.

In the space of ten minutes, there were huge puddles, torrential rain, blustery wind, amazing autumn colour and a tiny rainbow in the right half of the photo (not able to be seen as my speed at getting to the right feature on my phone leaves something to be desired!). It was all so beautiful - that colour sang in the watery sunshine.

What a great thing these cameras are - gosh, I can photograph at any time without having to carry special kit to do so, and all on a small device less than half the size of a postcard that can fit in my pocket! Who would have believed it possible 20 years ago?

  1. I still haven't made the jump to a new phone....mine barely takes calls, let alone pictures. But there are even classes offered now on the taking and making of art pics. It's an exciting world out there...can't wait to see what you do with it!!

    1. I hadn't made the jump either till now - my previous phone resembled a small brick and was limited to texts and calls. My daughter did not approve. This one, however, is like a mini computer with equivalent complexity ... and of course, no instruction book!

    1. On m'a dit que l'objectif de l'appareil est extraordinaire - et je le crois - si petit mais si astucieux - incroyable!
