Sinking Rowboat.

I had FUN on my Vancouver Island photo adventure on my way home today, as usual, just seeing whatever I could see … and find. This iPhone photo is “hot off the press” today, part of my 50th birthday project, 50 Photos 50 Years : Number 9.

I have photographed this rowboat many times before, and it’s almost always full of water, but today, it was even more special for some reason, the angle, the lighting, and I could get just a little closer than usual, then once I added a few iPhone apps, I now have … ART! I’m thinking it’s one of my favorite pieces now (until next time).

It’s day 5 of celebrating my 50th birthday with iPhoneography, and this iPhone photograph was taken in my neigbhourhood, and is titled, Ships Point Forest Walk.

Although we appear to be standing still, we’re actually moving forward on a forest trail, as I captured this shot.

Day four of my 50 iPhone photos for my 50th birthday is Sasha, my little buddy, my neighbour up the street. I think she’s in love with me 🙂 I LOVE this little doggie … she’s such a sweetie, lucky me, I get to walk with her every week.

Day three of my 50 iPhone photos for my 50th birthday. This one is “hot off the press” taken fresh this morning, during my walk through a green forest my neighbourhood, yes, a GREEN forest.

After post-processing in the iPhone, I created this piece of art, which appears winter-like, titled “Snow Forest” because it’s supposed to be Spring! … and it is so fricken cold on April 15th on Vancouver Island. Where the heck is the heat? Come on Spring!

So … now that my rant is over, the gift of the cold weather, is this beautiful piece of art, which I love, and which actually blows me away … the amazing art that can now be created, simply with an iPhone. Love the softness. This is one of my favorites so far, I think 🙂

Bloggers, authors and creatives inspire other bloggers, writers and creatives. That’s what I LOVE about Social Media.

If you’re on Twitter, I’m using the hashtag #50photos50years

Yesterday I wrote on my blog about my intent to blog about and post iPhone photos for my project titled, 50 Photos 50 Years : iPhoneography and also yesterday, April 13th, my 50th birthday, I wrote on my Brenda Johima Art and Photography FaceBook page :

Starting 50 iPhone Photos over 50 days to celebrate my 50 years on this amazing beautiful planet:) #iPhoneography They will all be posted right here and on my blog. Stay Tuned.

Although I have been thinking of ways to celebrate my 50 years living on this planet, in part I have been inspired by (and am following) Alexandra Samuel, who is soon to celebrate her 40 years, and is posting daily, 40 blog posts for her 40th birthday which “tackle one key technological innovation for each year in the past 40 years”

My initial project idea was to photograph 50 dogs at the same time for my 50th birthday but, with a long story made short, that didn’t work out for a few reasons and I cancelled the event. I have another 50 doggie phoDOGraphy secret session up my sleeve, so stay tuned, that one is just postponed, to emerge in a new form in the future. I’m happy with my decision to cancel the original event.

My goal with these iPhone images, is part celebration, part expression via the art of 50 days, but also to discipline myself, to take one iPhone photo every single day for 50 days, and write about it, and on the many days that I take way more than that, then the creative process becomes a selection process. Also, my goal is to inspire others to simply take images, get out with a camera, any camera, and take pictures. My 50 photos 50 days … It Will Be FUN! LOVE iPhoneography!

So here is Number 1 in my new iPhoneography series: (was busy celebrating yesterday, so I’m one day late in posting this image)

We all have romantic ideas of what you are “supposed” to do on your 50th birthday, likely something wild and crazy and massively successfully popular with a gazillion friends and vacations and who knows what else society expects one to do on their 50th, but where did I end up? (*remember I live rural, Fanny Bay population estimated at about 760 or so)

Right around the corner from my house, at the Fanny Bay Inn with my neighbours. It was FUN, fantastic, spontaneous, lots of laughs good for the soul, and I felt loved and cared about. What more could one ask for? Simple.

So the image is an iPhone image of the sign on the building, post-processed using Instagram.

Happy,
