I love taking photos with my ‘real’ camera – it’s what I use to capture beautiful photos of my kids either at home or on days out. But you can’t have your real camera with you all the time – it’s just too heavy and bulky.
Lately I’ve been taking more and more photos with my iPhone. It’s a good back-up when I don’t have my DSLR with me and sometimes, if the light is right, there’s no discernible difference in quality.
But mainly I use my phone and my camera in different ways. They camera is for photos I want to keep – the phone is for quirky or beautiful things I notice as I go about my day to day life. I don’t take many photos of the kids on my phone. The phone is for photos that are nice for now, but I will usually delete pretty soon afterwards.
So what have I seen through the eyes of my phone?
This is what I’ve captured over the last week…
Gloucester docks on a grey day
A beautiful sunset over my neighbour’s house
The last few red apples on the tree in our garden
Delicious mixed vegetarian starter on a night out with my colleagues to celebrate my 40th
Autumn wildflowers photographed on a bike ride
More autumn undergrowth from my bike ride
Which I then thought would look more effective in black and white…
