PHOTO: Challenge #23 Cellphone FavoritesAugust 18th, 2010 by Meegan Reid
Since Derek is/has been uber busy with stories he’s left it up to me to post our favorite cellphone photos from last week’s challenge.
Here’s what you should know, I do not use the camera on my cellphone, nor have I ever used it. Okay maybe I took one picture one time but it’s still on there because I don’t even know how to get the photo off of the phone.
I am not against cellphone cameras, if that’s the only camera you have, well by all means photograph away! It’s just I usually have between 1-3 cameras in my bag or on my shoulders most of the time, so my need for a cellphone camera has never been that great.
But I digress here are our favorites for the week:
“Oscar” by ladypoohbear
That’s right it’s a little dog in a mailbox and gosh darn it it’s pretty darn adorable! Aside from the silly cuteness of it it’s just a well composed photo but maybe a better title would have been “The Mailman’s Worst Nightmare” or something along those lines.

Who needs room in their kayak for all that fancy camera gear when a small cellphone camera captures such a beautiful scene right in front of you?!?! This photo has a nice perspective with the nose of the kayak just off center of the frame and the sun just off center of that- really just a great use of the rule of thirds (which happens to be this weeks challenge hint hint).
“Warhol Bainbridge Ferry Dock” by Warrick Wilson
Some might think that a picture of the Bainbridge ferry dock is well frankly just a picture of a ferry dock, but when teamed up with an in-phone photo editing application it becomes a real work of art ready to be hung on the wall, or used as screensaver for your phone.
