Saturday, March 9: This week WordPress decided to do something different with the Weekly Photo Challenge. They are calling it a Phoneography Challenge because we are supposed to take pictures of our neighborhood WITH OUR PHONES. I don’t have a smart phone, but I do have a new iPad, so I figured I would take the pictures with that. The challenge is this:
To kick this off, grab your phone and head out the door. That’s right — get on your feet and go outside to explore — and document — where you live. I want to see your neighborhood: The path you take for your daily morning run. Your local coffee shop or dive bar. The nearby alley of street and community art. A shot of the intersection that perfectly captures the bustle of your own corner of town. Or a serene landscape view of your village.
I also went out after taking these photos with my iPad and took a few with my Olympus PEN EPL-1.
And finally, this picture I took outside my back door a couple of nights ago as the sun was setting. This one I took with my Olympus camera.
Ok, which do you like better? The ones taken with my iPad or the ones with my camera? I would prefer to use my camera, as the iPad is very cumbersome and awkward. Since I don’t have an iPhone, I cannot take pictures using my phone! I have to say, I’m not really keen on this new challenge, since WordPress is specifying equipment that leaves some of us out of the field of contenders!! 🙂
