A few weeks ago we had an Phone photo competition at work. Instead of the usual competition where someone sets a theme that we can shoot with SLRs for the month, we were only allowed to shoot with our phones.
I'd always thought about trying to win a competition with an iPhone - just to prove its not about the camera but the person behind it. As it turned out, it was a level playing field because everyone was doing the same. Either way the challenge was set and I needed to make an effort.
It actually got me thinking that I drive or cycle past some really nice scenery on the way into work and it would be a good photography project. So I have dedicated a gallery to all such photos. My only rule is ... no SLR photos!
This photo was one I shot just off Matchams Lane, Bournemouth where there is a viewing point over what I presume is the Stour Valley, looking in the direction of Christchurch. The sun was rising through the mist and I tried to frame it with some overhanging trees. The photo was taken with my Olympus PEN E-PL1.
You can see how I got on in the JPMC competition by looking in my gallery of all JPMC comp entries. It's the black & white photo of someone walking down some steps at Southampton Airport Parkway train station.
