Pictures of fall leaves taken with my cell phone while driving in the car

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



























And the photostory is: I was driving through a local neighbourhood and I was impressed by the number of leaves on the ground. So I decided to snap some pictures. Don't worry... No cars were harmed in the taking of these shots - I slowed down and, in most cases, I even came to a complete stop before using my camera phone.

Now I just need to get a real camera. Although I kind of like how the phone wonked out that last shot. The perspective is so out-of-whack it's kind of cool. I also like the quality of the light in the shots... I think it looks the way it does because the sun was filtered by the coloured leaves on the trees and - as an added bonus- because the camera phone blurs the image slightly with any movement. I like how they turned out.

Cell phone or no...awesome photos.

I am amazed you could get such good pictures with your cell phone. It is just now in the 60's here in Oklahoma and the leaves are still green! That was a beautiful neighborhood. I would be compelled to photo it also!

Deb said...

these photos are amazing! what kind of phone do you have? my lame blackberry only produces blurry, monochromatic stuff. but it is probably the photographer and not the camera.

i love love love this time of year. the colors are gorgeous.

Those are some beautiful leaves! It amazes me the quality of pictures that camera phones will take now. They're better than my first digital camera was!

For a camera phone these look awesome! I recently got a blackberry and it takes probably the best phone pics so far out of all the phones I've had.

I love Fall pictures!!
