Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black and White (Today Launches a new Title for the Challenge)

lensandpensbysally has renamed her photo challenge from ‘Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge’ to the snappy ‘Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge’. I keep meaning to participate, but I think you are all beginning to twig by now that I do not always do what I think I’m going to do. 🙂

Both photographs taken at Yosemite National Park with my iPhone 4s, April 2014.

Let me know which you prefer and why. I suggest that you click on each image to enlarge.


Instantly, I recall that moment of true love. It is one of the most emotional experiences from my mental archive where I meander through memories about nature in places wild or tame, private or public. To enter Yosemite National Park is to put one’s mind in total spiritual and visual awareness. My senses were tantalized and thrilled, resulting in tears that surfaced with tender and paramount forces. I felt my kinship to John Muir.

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

      Today I’ve started setting up the plot-lines for the next two novels. I decided a trilogy would not probably be enough to develop everything I want to accomplish in my story and I thought it best to flesh out the future in actual words, before investing too much time in the current rewrite. I will need to include some sort of foreshadowing for future volumes and I need a little more world-building and some fine-tuning of my magic system. 🙂


  1. Thank you for reblogging my post–I do appreciate it. Please do join the fun. No pressure, and it would be a pleasure to have you participate. The challenge is a chance to join the photo community of those who experiment with the current toolkit of our Smartphones, iPads or iPods. Again thanks.

  2. Your words and photographs capture Yosemite wonderfully, a place I now well and treasure. Of the two amazing photographs taken with an iPhone, I’d have to say I prefer the one of Yosemite Falls because that scene means Yosemite to me.
