Making a Photograph...

"You don't take a photograph,
you make it."
Ansel Adams

I recently got a new iPhone 8+.
My friend has a new iPhone 10 and is enamoured
with the camera.  She kept telling me what a great
camera it is and that my iPhone 8 has the same camera.
So...we're walking in our nearby botanical gardens,
and I'm playing with my phone camera.  She shows 
me how to do her favorite..."portrait mode".
I just happen to accidentally put the camera
on Portrait mode, Stage Light Mono....
And voila!!!

OK...I'm a die hard Nikon user 
...and now... 
I'm pretty impressed with my iPhone!!!

For more Black and White on the image below!

And for more little corners of the world...


  1. That is just gorgeous! Nothing more to be said :)
    Mine is the iPhone6, and the camera's only any good for snaps. Hubby has the Samsung S8 - now THAT'S a camera!

    1. Amazing how good our darned phone cameras are!!!

  2. Beautiful! I also have an 8+ and love the camera. The only quirk I've found is I often have to correct the white balance on indoor photos.

    1. I agree Brian! Although I found that the ap options didn't always work the way they were supposed to. Still, it's a great back up camera!

  3. yes, phone camera's have come a long way, you've made a beautiful photo!

  4. Great picture. I wonder how long it will be before that 'huge DLSR' things we carry will seem as old as plate cameras? Sooner that I expect probably!

  5. I was thinking of switching to Nikon but I couldn't swing the price so settled for another cropped sensor Canon. Funny, I was thinking what a professional looking photo this was and that it must have been taken with a full frame camera.

    1. Haha! I usually shoot with a full frame Nikon...the d750... But here I was at the gardens with only my iphone! The best camera is the one you've got with you!

    2. So true my friend. I had to take another look at this photo I love it so much.

  6. Awesome macro work here! So good to see you back!!

  7. Well, you sure "made" a great one!

  8. ...Katherine, this fabulous! Thanks for sharing.

  9. Thanks for your comment on my blog.

    I love your photographs on 'The World in Black & White'.
