There are a few factors at work here. This was shot in low light out of a dirty bus window on the move. So there was plenty of noise. I shot it in color, actually haven't tried b&W out of the camera. As far as post production, I put it in Lightroom and then converted to b&w using whatever colored filter gave me the smoothest noise and then tweak for light, dark, contrast, etc I can't remember which I selected for this. I'm new to Lightroom, so haven't strayed too far from the presets.

I'm so ready for spring. I've been going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. The days have just started to get a little longer. It seems like we've only had 4 sunny days since October. I long to take a photo with a blue sky again.

I got a cell phone with a camera just this last Monday. It's still light when I get on the bus, but not light enough that I thought it warranted bringing a camera along to work, but now that I've got one on me all the time, I'm noticing a lot more opportunities.

Granted the image quality of the cell phones are nowhere near that of most of our "main" cameras they still allow one to work on composition and in my opinion most well composed photos don't need the highest quality to look good. When it's good, it's good.

This thread reminded me to start using my iPhone again. Here are a few from when I first got it:

I've only got an LG phone of some sort!

This photo was taken in my works car park during some heavy rain. Most of the distortion was caused by the rain running down the windscreen. All other work was carried out in phone.

I've seen many pictures of urban decay, old abandoned gas stations in towns long ago passed by the interstate, barns well past their prime, and rusted heaps of old cars. These all show the march of time, a forgotten era, and the images have some emotional appeal.

What I've taken on as a project is taking pictures of modern objects falling into neglect. Most specifically, lighted signs where some of the light bulbs have burned out. Some can be humorous. The best time to take a picture of these signs is at sunset. I happened across this one at just the right time of day. It was next to the Interstate highway I was on, so I took the next exit and headed back. The "real" camera was loaded with black and white, so the cell phone camera was pressed into action.

I call this one "Goo."

I got a Motorola Droid X late last year and have been enjoying many of the Droid apps. Some aren't as good as the iPhone apps, but many offer wonderful options.

haha, thanks, rondo. it was a proud day when my girly-girl got her first skinned knee. she's not very rough and tumble and she totally ate it on the asphalt while riding her razor. ripped both knees on her jeans and everything. it's the closest i'll ever be to having a son.

the iphone is so much fun with all the weird apps you can get. not sure which of the may "retro" apps i used but it might have been a combination of a couple.
