Phoneography and other NonSLR device Challenge – Nature

Orchid smallMacro entry for Lens and Pens Phoneography from Sally

Each Monday Sally gives us a weekly topic that inspires us to take photos with our phone cameras. I use a Nexus 4

This orchid, thrives on neglect. I do nothing to it, and it is hopelessly rootbound, but still it flowers every year. The blooms last for almost six weeks. I don’t know the scientific name, it is a hybrid plant I got over 25 years ago from an orchid nursery close to my home.

I find it hard to go past natural flora as a subject, for macro photography, as it highlights many details not seen by the naked eye, and allows us into the inner world of the flower, or perhaps the perspective of an insect.

Macro photography – Something to Ponder About

Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Macro (Hot chocolate)

For this week’s Macro challenge – from Lens and Pens

‘Hot Chocolate’


Even thought I prefer to drink my hot chocolate in a ceramic mug, I liked the effect of the crystallization of the cocoa and sugar on the glass’ edge, do you?

Join in with the challenge. Each week has a different theme.

Something for you and your phone camera to ponder on…
