Oh brother...

I've held onto these pictures for a while and haven't shared them
because I couldn't decide if the topic was the relationship between my two youngest children
or how using my iphone totally changes the way I take pictures.

(I'm going to go with topic number two,
but I have to say that I love that these kids get along (usually) and find time to play games 
and ride bikes together.)

I know that my iphone pictures are not likely to be technically perfect.
The focus isn't going to be sharp and they're bound to be noisy.
So that gives me the freedom to take pictures that may or may not come out.
They take on a different look.


I kind of love these.

The sunflare...
the silhouettes...
the funky colors...

And even the slow progression from children to ghosts as their heads disappear behind the sunflare.

When I'm in a rut, taking the same pictures in the same way, 
using my iphone takes me out of that.

Cool, huh?

I don't know, living in the moment of two kids getting along is a good topic too! I love the freedom of shooting with my BlackBerry. It's my "the kids are doing something funny and I need to get the shot now" camera and it's time one time I don't really give a crap about composition or really anything but capturing that moment.

Everyone posting their iphone photos is just killing me! (And you're not helping) These are awesome!

I want a Holga, but hubby said NO FILM. Heaven help me.

Totally dig these pictures ~ I agree with you (I don't have an iphone), my cell phone pictures are sometimes just perfect the way they are. :)

Very different look with the phone. I like the sun flare also and my favorite is the middle picture. Like the light shining between them.
