Photos shot on a cell phone

Cell Phone Street Photography

I walked to the local Ace Hardware this morning and took a few shots along the way. I noticed some attempts to thwart graffiti. I love all the color and the bold designs. I hope these works of art remain unspoiled for a long time.

I also discovered that my Nexus 5X is almost perfect for street photography. There are a number of reasons for this.

  • The camera quality is pretty good.
  • Like most phones, a picture can be snapped by pressing any button, and lots of folks don’t know this.
  • Tiny lens produces large depth of focus.
  • No one is surprised to see a person carrying a cell phone in his hand while walking down the street. I can snap away at will.

I just figured this out this morning, and have taken just a handful of shots on the street today. I still need to work on technique, and I need to find a way to stop touching the screen while shooting, which has a tendency to change settings, but I see lots of promise in this technique. Excited to do more!

Julie shot this panorama with her iPhone. She was, “Driving north from Yellowstone WY toward Livingston MT – looking east.” Beautiful!!

Extreme beauty near Livingston, Montana.

Rider in the Rain

Determined to get a look at Bandit under control of a more skilled rider, (thanks, Hannah!) Kelly and Stella brave the rain and fog at Skyline Ranch this morning.

One of these dudes is not the leader of the world’s eighth largest economy.

Spotted at Mua a couple nights ago.

Happy New Year!
