Hello to a new week!! I hope you all had a great weekend and captured lots of precious memories either with your “big girl/big boy” cameras or your smart phones or point ‘n shoots, whatever you had on you!
I wanted to share a picture I captured just this morning with my iPhone 4. I had just got back from taking my youngest to school (I homeschool the other three) and when I sat down at my desk and viewed out the window, I knew I had to get back up and capture that view.
Our house sits across from a barn and pasture, which has a pond at the base of the hill. Many mornings that pond will produce a lovely rolling fog over the pasture, giving it a dreamy effect.
I ran out with my phone, really only because I knew I could get a decent shot with it, or else I would have broke out the D700. Using my favorite camera app, Camera+, I was able to set the exposure so that I didn’t underexpose the grass and trees too much.
At the end of this post is a FANTASTIC video about phone photography, and the fellow in it uses a variety of camera apps which will get your really excited about the potential for street photography.
Okay, so after I took the dreamy morning pasture shot, I thought “you know, I’d like that on my personal FB Timeline cover.” I had been really struggling with what to put up there, and up until today it just sat blank.
Using the measurements that awesome Mariah fromJula Studios told me to use, I created a template and then pulled in the iPhone picture, then gave a brief description about me.
I will talk about Facbook Timeline covers later, but if you are looking for a template to use for your personal or business pages, Rita at Coffeeshop has a bunch!
The next two phone pics I’m sharing are less inspiring, sorry!
Below is my desk at 1:30 AM, when I was obviously working late and decided I needed something cold to wake me up. What better than Breyer’s Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream….like a bite of Heaven for me.
Next is a shot of my niece, Delanie, who was critically injured in a car accident almost a year ago. So many still ask about her, how she is doing, so I figured you’d enjoy seeing her healthy and happy. Miracles do happen, she is proof of that!
The other two rugrats are my youngest two children, Georgia and Nate. They were enjoying hot dogs at their cousin’s first birthday party.
Do you have any “mobile memories” you would like to share? If so, post them to EE’s Facebook page….I would LOVE to see them!
