March Phoneography Challenge: TOYS

Here are some more iPhone shots, edited with Camera+

There isn’t a lot to shoot around my drought stricken yard yet; I’ve been keeping my eyes on the budding trees, just waiting to capture some color. So in the meantime, I turned my iPhone to the toys that my grands left scattered like last autumn’s fallen leaves around my place. 🙂

I am adding this image to this blog, because it doesn't fit anywhere else. I shot it a couple weeks after the other toy images, but I really liked it and wanted to add it to my challenge!

I love the way the light plays over the new batch of chalk that I put out for my grands on Easter morning! Shadow and light make even the most mundane subject spectacular.

These play garden toys lay were they were left by my grands after playing in the dirt. The red is what is common for dirt here in Oklahoma - hence, The Red Dirt State.

The same wheel, but I wanted it in sepia tone so had to take it into photoshop to edited and save this way without losing the original. That is the only drawback of Camera+, you can only chose one feature to save.

    Great photos. I like the first photo, (The Red Dirt State.) When I first saw it I thought of, children archaeologist.

      That is a great idea, I wished I had thought of it! They are definitely diggers. They dig the dirt. They build with the dirt. They throw the dirt. And then they cry when it gets blown in their eyes with our wickedly awful Oklahoma wind.

    Great photos. We have red dirt on the ‘other side of the hill’ at our farm. You can actually see the line where the red dirt and the black dirt meet. It’s amazing!

      Thanks Dianne, I would love to see a pic of that! I thought oklahoma was the only one to have that red clay-like dirt! It sure messes up your clothes!

        It’s not under our house, but you can clearly see the line from my veranda. Hubby’s cousin lives where it is and she hates it. I’ll have to wait until later in the year when the cane is cut to get a good pic, but I’ll definitely post one here. Apparently it’s volcanic soil 😉
