I am very pleased with this photo (and the others taken that evening). This photo was ‘the one’ I wanted to take when we set out for our walk. I smile every time because the evening stroll with my family was beautiful but also I imagine what I must have looked like taking this photo. My knee was hurting so I was bent over like a giraffe and slightly twisted holding my phone taking this photo. 😉
This photo was taken on Lake Erie, from Rock Point Provincial Park, Ontario. Photos like this one; taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3, no special effects, just ‘auto’ photo setting…. these photos impress me because I remember when a phone’s camera was… well more of a toy.
There are other beautiful photos taken with phones (and other mobile devices ) kindly pop over to Lens and Pens by Sally to see them.
My mother is a big believer in being responsible for your own happiness. She always talked about finding joy in small moments and insisted that we stop and take in the beauty of an ordinary day. When I stop the car to make my kids really see a sunset, I hear my mother’s voice and smile. ~~Jennifer Garner
