THROUGH A NEW LENS: Blues & Grays

A smart phone lens.

Had to buy a new phone, gotta play with it.

Sitting at home, peering out at the forest through blue glass,

in traffic in Seattle, looking up at a construction site, with and without equipment,

and casting about inside the car for something to photograph:

a blurred bump as I put my foot on the gas.

  1. it’s always fun to experiment with new gadgets, and you’ll manage to find beauty in the gravel or grass beneath your feet!

  2. It is always a great adventure, trying out a new camera. And it doesn’t seem much of a difference if it’s on a phone… or a toy… I’ve had many such adventures. In a way, for a while at least, it releases us from old habits and expectations. And we can take ourselves a little let seriously… Like the pictures you’ve shared with us here.

    • True, any new camera is going to shake things up. It’s good to keep lightening the load as we age, yes?

  3. I agree with Shimon wholeheartedly. Thanks for sharing Lynn! :-) I’ve been meaning to ask have I spelt your name correctly or do you have an ‘e’ on the end..?

  4. You’ve reminded me what fun I had with the old point ‘n shoot. Perhaps I ought to put a battery back in it. (Haven’t found a good reason to be paying that monthly fee for a smart phone just yet.) Love all the playful shots you have here.

    • I’m glad – those blurry pics are always worth a second look before you hit delete, don’t you think?

  8. You are capturing magic… Therefore you must be a fairy ;-)

  9. I love the fact that you shot these with a phone– It probably wasn’t engineered specifically for it, but it’s brought us so much creative potential.
