Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge

Some of you saw that I published a strange untitled post this morning. Well, I was flying back home when it happened, and only now reading comments, I found this out. Thanks for the hilarious comments, but I confess that I have no idea how I have possibly scheduled it.  The only clue I have is that I did it by accident as I scheduled several posts for the days of my travels, and perhaps also the draft post I used to upload some photos while using WP app.

But as the photos went out anyways, I deleted the wrong post and made this new one.

I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge.

The schedule theme for this week’s challenge is: Editing and Processing with Various Apps Using Themes from the Fourth Week (Pick One: Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel).

I used Olympus app to post edit these photos shot with an iPhone 5.

I chose a mix of animals with street life. I will tell you why.

I saw these dinos alongside the parking for the Amsterdam Zoo, called Artis. They were not accepted inside the zoo, so they live in the streets in familiar terms with humans. As you will notice, there is even a lady reading a book for a baby dino.

  1. Lucile, that last image really caught my attention, but, of course, the first sighting of that wild creature was the other day. The last image has a cartoon-like effect that coupled with the way the dinosaur stares at the woman reading is such a telling fun-filled commentary. Happy Photo Challenge.


    1. Hi Janet
      At least this unplanned post delivered some laughter after my mistake. I had selected other photos for Sally’s challenge but after this happened I changed my mind.


  2. This was fun. I didn’t quite now what NI photos were, but figured they were something my camera doesn’t do. The woman reading her book while she has a monster coming toward her totally cracked me up! Must be a real page-turner she has there!


    1. How funny! You saw it too! I was a bit embarrassed as it looked odd.
      I loved the sight of that woman reading in front of the dinosaur too.
      I just used filters from Olympus. There is a mobile olympus app which does that. Simple app with some nice effects.


    1. Well, I trashed it. No, I used my phone for post processing. I have the olympus mobile app on my iPhone. I sent the photo via wifi from my camera to the iPhone. Don’t start saying that it’s complicated because it’s not. Even I can do that without reading a manual.

      1. Today. Today. Today is the day I’m going to go out and buy a smartphone with a camera. Or…maybe tomorrow. But, I’m going to need the manual, or a tutor.


          1. Ha! I can’t find the Sony RX-10 manual online, except for the basic one that doesn’t tell you HOW to do, just tells you that you CAN. I’ve pretty much decided on the iPhone, but I can’t promise (1) that I’m actually going to get off my butt and buy it, and (2) well…we all know behaving well is as relative as everything!


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
