Blogger's Block

I seem to have Writer's Blogger's Block.  I'm not sure what to write about today.

So - I'm going to talk about Pioneer Woman's current photography assignment.  It is a toughy for me.  The theme is photos taken with your cell phone!

Well, I don't have a fancy cell phone.  I don't even have a fairly current cell phone!  I have had my phone since 2005 (I think....)  It is an LG EnV - not the EnV touch, or the EnV 3 that they are selling now.  Nope - it is the original.  I don't have any apps or even internet access.  The camera on the phone was fabulous when I first got it (a whole 2 megapixels!  At the time that was amazing!)  Now, with the iPhones and many others that are keeping up with the same technology, it's really no big deal.

BUT - it is a cell phone.  It sends and receives calls and texts.  It covers the bases for me!  I would like something newer, of course, but I don't need it.  There are many other things I'd rather spend my money on!

So - here are some of the photos I have taken over the years with my cell phone.  They are not works of art.  They were taken before I learned how to really use a camera and compose a shot.  But they chronicled my life before I got a DSLR camera.  It still comes in handy when I want to take a shot and don't have my camera!!!

What can your phone do??  Do you think I should upgrade?

It's a little hard to see, but I was driving through McDonalds for coffee one morning, and this truck was in front of me.  He had hay bales and lit-up Jack-O-Lanterns in the bed of his truck for Halloween!  :)
At my daughter's school this past winter.  Remember the 3 feet of snow in the Northeast??  Well, we didn't get that much, but we had our fair share!  The teachers decided to update these pieces of art!


Our show at Topeka Civic Theater, "Peter Pan", opens tomorrow.  Tonight is our last dress rehearsal and we will have an audience of family and friends.  It is so much fun, but tiring!  I think I will take the kids to the pool for some relaxing this afternoon before we dress up for the show!

Have a great Thursday everyone!!

I've got a fairly new blackberry and it doesn't get half the quality your pictures have. I think that the quality is more in the photographer than in any particular tool.

I agree with Bagman and Butler that it's more the photographer than the camera. :)

I don't have a fancy cell phone. I'm happy with the basics.
