Outdoor Photo Prompt ~ The Cell Phone Shot

From The Blackberry Camera

I have to admit, when I’m out and about I’m not always packing a real camera along. However, I usually have my cell phone with me unless I’m lucky enough to be in a no cell service part of the Great Outdoors.

On more than one occasion I’ve reached into my pocket, grabbed my cell phone and taken a picture of something I wanted to capture visually. Some of the cell photos I’ve taken are pretty bad, some are decent and every once in awhile I surprise myself by getting a great one.

This weeks Photo Prompt is all about the cell phone camera.

We want you to share the picture you’ve taken with your cell phone that you’re most proud of. Subject material can be anything you took a picture of with your cell phone that has an outdoor vibe. People, places, things, it all works for this prompt.

  • Post your camera phone photo on your blog
  • If there’s a story behind the photo, tell us about it
  • Copy and Paste the URL of your photo post into the comment section below so that we can all visit and see your picture!

    Sorry, but I have a stupid phone, not a smart phone. I can take pics with it, but not post online….

      If you can send your photos in text message, I recommend you get a photobucket account. They have a special number that you can text that will send your photo to your account online.

    I have a cell phone that will take pictures, but I have no clue how to use it. That’s why I ALWAYS carry my digital camera. And me being married to a Senior IT Tech. Oh well…..

    Droid X, took that right before I left the lake. Actually, all the android phones have awesome cameras on them :)

    Ok, I’ll bite. I’ve had this picture for some time and no real reason or motivation to publish it:

    All of the photos I used in this post are from my cell phone. My favorite one is the second one. I didn’t intend for the sunbeams to be there, they just sort of showed up.

    Not really a story, but we were walking around Phoenix and I snapped this photo of the Chase building. It was taken with an iPhone 3G. I love that the clouds can be scene, and it gives the illusion that the second building can be seen through the first.

    Quite often forget the memory card or batteries for the cameras… ah ha cell phone.
    BTW: It ain’t the camera it’s the ability to speak your vision.
    Keep chasing the dream!

    I finally had a moment to comment and wanted to just add that I have posted a couple of cell phone shots over on my blog. I haven’t used my cell phone for outdoor pictures a lot, but, looks like it could do a decent job. Here is the link

    Here is a great waterfall shot I took today in Green Lane PA at the Deep Creek Dam


    http://funcfish.com is almost all done with a Nexus One (Android) cell phone camera. I’ve been able to get some nice shots and some average shots. Course, when you are taking pictures of the fish you catch they are all good shots!

    I use my phone to make calls…but the camera is there if I need it.
    I’d really rather use my digital camera.

    Here are a couple though they are hardly my proudest moments…
    The first is from this week’s Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture Annual Partners Meeting. It is indoors admittedly but not all of the good work for brook trout takes place outside:

    I did capture a nice fall shot of my pal Dusty Wissmath teach at his fly-fishing school a couple of weekends ago:
