Four Months!


The other day I decided to devote some time in exploring this camera app I have on my iPhone in the hope I could understand it better.  When I opened it up I discovered these pictures in it.  They've been languishing in there for 4 months!  I didn't even know they were there.  Gee I wish I could understand how these things work!  Oh the story I could tell just trying to understand and get my music sorted out with iTunes between my phone, iPad, iPod and laptops.  But I finally accomplished that last week.
Too many devices.

These are all cacti in our yard





and some poppies along the side.

Still, the iPhone does pretty good with flowers except the Beaver Tail at the top.  But even my Nikon has a hard time with the brilliant magenta of the Beaver Tail blossoms.  And even though you cannot see any stickers, they are there!  They are very tiny little things that if you get them in your hand they are very irritating and next to impossible to see and remove.

A hidden treasure! The photos are very nice made with the I-phone. The quality is superb.

Flowers of cacti were the reason I had a whole collection in the seventies but unfortunately the weather conditions in the netherlands were not enough to get the flowers in an apartment without a proper sunny place.

The answer is simple: Switch to Android, where the apps are intuitive.

I'm definitely not good with the iPhone...
Have you tried setting your Nikon to vivid mode to photograph magenta things?

Now that was a brilliant bonus John, super shots. There are some colours that are so bright it's almost impossible to catch the details clearly.

Amazing you can get photos like these with a phone!
