Photo Challenge – Remastered

The phoneography challenge is the brainchild of Sally at Lens and Pens and each week has a different theme and tip for improving your phoneography. You can see my second photo is not so good here, as I changed the angle of the light. The angle of the light was better in the first photograph.

Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Black and White (Architecture)

As it happens, Sally at Lens and Pens also picked an architectural subject for this week's phoneography Black and White theme. And with a lot of contrast, architecture is often the perfect subject in monochrome. This group of buildings spans three decades, eighties, nineties and noughties with a brighter foreground of more recent years. Modern… Continue reading Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Black and White (Architecture)

Here the summer is just starting to wane, but oh, just so slightly. We have a long way to go before winter arrives in earnest.
