Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

We could always have a challenge that requires 'straight from the camera' images. =)

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

It was a beautiful day today so as well as taking some pictures while out and about, I also took some in the garden. I'm still using the phone camera, which is why this one is small. And it's quite simple. But I think the blue sky is rather nice, so I thought I'd add this as the first picture for the competition. I sharpened it and blurred the edges slightly.




One thing (well, one among many) that I dislike about the phone camera is that you don't get depth with it. But there you go.

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

That's a really great picture Hoopy, perhaps the best photo I've ever seen taken from a phone.

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

Thankee! Although I confess that photobucket is my best friend at the moment. I'll show how different the photos look after tinkering with them in the Photo of the Day thread (if people don't mind me keep posting my silly phone camera photos )

How many megapixies is your phoney phone anyway?

That sounds neat.

Hoopy, I love your image. It's simple but beautiful.

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

Ooh... now I'm torn. I had a favourite, and now I have more than one.... hmmm...


And I'm posting my two pics around the 24th, if I remember near that time. And if I do forget, then meh, I'll post them in the photo thread instead.

And miss the challenge! Don't do that!

Just a note to remind that entries will close sometime on the 25th - probably the 25th here, but I'll try and post a twenty-four hour notice, then add the poll exactly twenty-four hours (funnily enough) after that.

I still have no photos...

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

I'm going to throw in a second entry -mainly because I got absolutely soaked getting this picture and feel it should earn its keep


It's a blue bike so it should meet the entry criteria.

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

OK, I think I'll post my second one, too, if only for the same reason as Foxbat: the effort involved! I must have taken about twenty photos at different angles and distances Oh, and for those who have heard about it, this is the reason for setting a patch of the ground on fire. I accidentally dropped the candle holder. Put it out soon enough, though.



The blue is my shed. It was to this I was referring when I said the other day that I'd found something blue to capture. You know, because I hadn't noticed the large blue structure at the top of the garden before...

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

Ooh, now I have a definite favourite image.

Is it okay to say that this early?

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

It's not going to do the Passiflora shoot and tendrils a lot of good, though.

(I know, it's irrelevant to the subject - but as a gardener, it's the first thing I thought when I saw the photo...)

Re: July Photo Challenge - Blue

Ah, well, this is where confession time steps in.

The plant actually climbs up the side of the shed (and it's big and bushy and very healthy (and flowering, as I showed elsewhere)). I snipped a bit of it off and wound it around the lantern's stick, because it was looking a little bare.

Aghh! Mutilator!!

It does look good, though - festive, for some reason. It'd make a nice Christmas card...
