Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Nature (Fall in my Backyard)

iPhone Monday 12-1-14

It’s hard to believe December is already here but it’s the first Monday of another month and time for Sally’s creative Phoneography challenge:  Nature.  I’m happy to be back from a busy few days filled with Thanksgiving visits, half-finished home projects and the general stuff that piles up when I try to do too many things at once and I’m really looking forward to catching up with my reader and discovering what happened in your world while I was away from the computer.

Last week our weather was full of beautiful blue skies and moderate temperatures but Saturday morning came in with a cold north wind and a stubborn crust of icy snow that is still on the ground today.  Instead of sharing a photo of my wilted and frozen garden I have this little image from last month showing one of the plentiful white mushrooms before the squirrels decided to have it as a snack.

  1. This picture looks like Christmas, Lisa. I don’t know why a mushroom looks like the holiday, but maybe I had too many margaritas in Mexico. I hope you had a lovely holiday with your family. Please tell Ryan I said hi.


    1. I can see the Christmas in it too, Andra. There are pine branches and red berries for color and it certainly smelled like a tree farm. 🙂 I had a great holiday and hope your sunny Mexican adventure was wonderful. Ryan just got a huge smile when I shared your “hi” and sends one back to you. 🙂


  2. Lisa, what a wonderful picture and yes, the mushroom looks as though it’s decorated. When I was in France, I kept taking more and more photos of mushrooms/fungus because they’re fascinating to me.



  3. [Gasp !]
    Amazing, beautiful, fascinating, Lisa ! I trust you intend to negotiate with a gallery re giving an exhibition, some time …?!


  4. I’m so glad that I decided to check back to see if I’d caught up on all the reading I missed, because I hadn’t seen this one. WOW. WOW. WOW. You seriously took this quality of photo with your iPhone?? WOW!
    I just love this, Lisa.


    1. It’s great to hear you like it, Nancy and yes, this is an iPhone photo. 🙂 I took it in Hipstamatic then processed a little with Snapseed and Perfect Photo Suite 8. I hope you’re doing well during this busy time of year!


      1. GAH! I’m barely staying afloat, Lisa. Finally getting around to posting something. I’m headed to Vancouver tomorrow, where I’ll spend the week. Not a single break in the schedule before I fly back home Friday morning. 😦


      2. So close to me, yet still too far!!! I hope you have a great trip though and can find a few minutes of freedom to enjoy Vancouver. 🙂 Wet weather early in the week but improving by the end. 🙂


      3. I’ll be traveling with my peer from Atlanta, so I’ll have a sidekick for the entire week (even outside work hours). He’s great, so it should be fun, but it did put the kaibosh on plans to meet up with a Vancouver bloggy friend. Next time!
