For my birthday this week I purposely left my DSLR home and shot only with my iPhone for the whole day. Since I wanted to capture the memories of the day I knew that I would be forced to use it.
FARMER'S MARKET - Mallory and I spent the morning at the Farmer's Market.
Yummy Fresh Strawberries
Nearing the end of the Asparagus season
LUNCH - We had a tasty lunch at home complete with cookies from the Amish girls' stand at the Farmer's Market. Chocolate Cherry. Yum!
GRAND HAVEN - We spent the afternoon in Grand Haven, shopping...
Eating Ice Cream...
And RIDING THE TROLLEY, a yearly summer tradition we have done since Mallory was 2 years old.
Someday I am going to go through all our pictures and find one of Mallory each year on the trolley. That will be a fun trip down memory lane. I really need for her to stop growing up!
To end the day Glen met us in Grand Haven for supper, which I had intentions of taking pictures of, but once the food arrived I forgot all about taking pictures. Something I need to work on before the trip to Montana.
I know that there is a lot more that I can do with my phone, but for me this is a good start, and I didn't want to overwhelm myself with all the different apps, so I just kept it simple. A little Camera+, Snapseed, PicTapGo, and Instragram.
I am seriously considering taking Big Picture Classes Phone Photography Project which starts July 1 and runs the whole month of July. I love learning new things, and I know that my iPhone is going to be instrumental for posting pictures while we are on vacation. So a word of warning to my followers on Instragram you might be seeing a whole lot more of me over the next month.
BTW - If you want to follow me on Instragram and watch my (hopeful) progress, I am at (what else but) paisleyrainboots.
