Bits from the beach getaway

I had kept a few shots of the beach getaway on the iPhone so I could play with them So here are a few naked shots that I took with the iPhone. The first two photos are fragments of a sculpture by Hew Chee Fong titled "landscapes of my mind, sense of place" (FOMM).

I'm still not bored with iPhoneography as a small creative outlet when I only have a few minutes to play. And I still love the grainy look of some of the photos when I have used the 'telephoto lens' of the iPhone camera. The night and fish shots are examples of the grainy look. Fiona thought the altered Sand ripples and water 1 - looked a bit like edges of pages of a book - we all look at things through different eyes.


  1. Hope you never get bored with your altered images - once again these are stunning. I liked the first one best. Am intrigued by the suspended fish!

  2. SB- so glad you liked; and if you look really closely at the original one of the suspended fish you can just mask out fishing line caught in the tree. Though I think the altered photo looks like the fish is swimming. Go well. B

  3. The pontoon is great... and the fish, both are really intereseting altered - well, at least they're my favorites!

  4. Hi VA - I also like both the pontoon and fish - to me they both have a bit of a Japanese feel about them. Go well. B
