Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: The Streets

Sally's weekly phoneography challenge is here and I particularly liked her quote to add to my photographic meanderings in November: Joyously or not the photograph becomes the source of reality, but it can also become a dreamlike force for interpretation.

Phoneography Challenge – Editing and Processing

Lens and Pens Phoneography inspires me every week to look at a photograph differently and to see more possibilities. Especially when it is Week 5 - Editing and Processing Camera apps are lots of fun (and a little bit addictive). I enjoy creating some visual art from a humble photograph.
