A few weeks ago when our motorcycle decided to breakdown, I spent an hour at the side of the road waiting for help and snapping photos of power lines with my iPhone 4.
I am thrilled with the results! The day was a little overcast in places so the light wasn’t too bright. Perfect for sky shots of power lines.
We also just so happened to be parked by a really gnarly tree which made for wonderful juxtapositions. Organic vs man-made, linear vs curvilinear, simple vs complex… it made my heart happy when I saw the results.
What’s so exciting for me is that I didn’t do ANY editing on either one, including cropping (only the signature and a frame in Pixlr). That doesn’t happen very often with the iPhone. It isn’t easy to see what you really have on that little screen while you are taking it, especially outside. That’s why I take shot after shot. Well, I struck gold with these two, both in the same session. Woohoo!
It’s been awhile since I’ve joined up with the Look Up, Look Down Challenge and I thought these power lines would make a great entry. If you love taking up and down shots, I think you’d enjoy this challenge (here).
As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.
