Ok ok, here I am. With an excuse: I am lazy, and often don't bring my camera with me when I'm out and about. What can I say, it's generally just easier to shoot with my phone. (Don't judge me, hahaha!)

I took a walk at Sonoma State University (our local college, which has a beautiful park-like campus) on Saturday. I love walking around the ponds there and through the quad, under the shadow of these behemoth concrete buildings.

These were all edited in-phone (ha!) with an app called Instagram. Another app I like to use Snapseed, by Nik Software.

@Mike, ah, I'll never tell...

@Amandapanda I love the MC Escher look of the second shot and the trees are very cool in color. iPhone or not it's the person that takes the image not the camera. Nice set.

Hooray for more photos! And really Amanda, the shots you can get with your phone are amazing. So you do always have a camera with you. :-)

I love your second shot, definitely agree with Tim, and Escher-esque aspect to it. The contrast seems perfect and great placement in the shot. It makes me feel like I'm looking up, even though I'm not.

TP - both her mother and I went to Sonoma State University, where Amanda shot those shots in the early '70s. Those walls hold a few memories for me but honestly, Amanda got a few angles there I don't think I ever saw even in some occasional altered states of reality...nice work.

I'm doing a project for class on the 'Decisive Moment' theme. These are a couple of my feeble attempts at it. Both shot with 645 and Illford FP4 ISO125

Hehe, I vote "modern art"... clearly that's an art display.

While I really wish I could love "Athena at Night", I also wish that flag wasn't sticking out of her head. It would otherwise be a fantastic picture.

A couple more submissions from today. We went out on the ice today to get some shots of ice fishermen (fisherwomen? fisherpeople?) I only had time to quickly process a couple of them so far. I'll have more for the next TW3.

Deep Dark Pit


Fresh Hole

Nice B&Ws Tim! I like Two a lot, something about the framing I think. The large section of water with the encircling crowd really works. I don't know if there's a defining moment there, maybe with the GWC?

I like the simplicity in your art shot as well, nice use of shadow and texture.

FP: Wow, you really got some nice texture in the snow in Pit, and now I see why you took that shot on your belly, seeing the background in that shot really adds to it. I like the story Fresh Hole brings too.

I need to get to work processing mine too!

Dad the Athena shot is terrifying. Those black hole eyes are haunting. I could also do without the flag...remember how I'm always telling you to de-clutter? :-)

Athena...yep, I shot it with the intention of including the flag and lights as I wanted a cross thing from it. I intended it to look odd and the dark eyes were something I was going for. I have a lot of images of it and just did another roll Tuesday on it. I appreciate the de-clutter comments and will take that into consideration when I print my final print of the face (most likely from a different angle) something like this one (not for judging) and yes there is a light trail from cars passing by.

FP I do like the Fresh Hole shot. It's minimalist in a way and the framing of the hole and receding distance tells a story. Nicely done. Good luck Tiffany on figuring this TW3 out!

Thanks Tim, it will definitely be a challenge with some strong submissions coming in late.

Regarding the ice fishing photo shoot yesterday, I have a fear of drowning, specifically drowning under ice. So walking this far away from our vehicle and "safety" yesterday was a pretty big step for me.

The little shack far,far behind the truck is land


FP was very helpful, jumping up and down on the ice to show me how "safe" it was...

Near and Far


The rational part of me knows that if I can take this shot, then yes, it's perfectly safe to walk and drive on this ice.



But growing up with dire warnings of never walking on what looks like frozen rivers still rings through my mind. Where I grew up if a small river froze for a week in winter, it was a cold winter.
