I managed to photo Jupiter last night, and I got detail! Look at those cloud bands!!😭😭
I nearly cried and did a happy dance.
Buying my scope was SUCH a good decision! She's showing me such amazing things!
Photo taken on my phone so it isn't the best, but it's mine.💜
#SkyWatch #Astrophotography #PhonePhotography I wasn't feeling well enough last night to set up my equipment so I used my phone on a tripod to capture this image of the Orion constellation. It's easy to find if you look for Orion's Belt, the 3 stars in a tight row in the middle of the image. Then find his sword, his shield at the top, his feet in down to the right, his shoulders up to the left and his head above his shoulders. I am amazed at the capabilities of this phone camera.
Walked out of the house about 8:30 today to go on a bagel run. Noticed our neighbor's tree had turned, seemingly overnight. Some fleeting nice light lit it for a moment. Had to take a snap.
I miss living in the northeast for those wonderful fall colors. But here's not so bad.
I enjoy looking for and taking black and white photos. This is a deliberate b&w iPhone photo using the #RitchieCam app #DramaticBW simulation.
Love the Silhouettes. Shot at the Ivywild school in Colorado Springs. This old school has be re-purposed as an eatery, bar, bbq & brewery joint with the classrooms still in place. Very cool and very well done.

Made it. It's not the top of the mountain but it's as far as the path goes, and that's far enough for me today 😁
Stopped on the way up to look for Kingfishers but nothing today ☹️
I'm heading up into that mountain, I'll post a pic when I get there looking down into the valley ( and add alt text when I'm home later😊 )
I need a tripod that can hold a phone, sit on a tabletop, & shoot straight down without getting its legs in the shot so I can record myself working & animate my paintings. Right now my "tripod" is a stack of #Discworld books. It's wobbly & gets my #books closer to water than I like
Please, give me your recommendations!

Further foibles in my quest to escape Samsung -
Pixel 8 - meh. 🤷🏻♀️
#Pixel8Pro - well geez, that looks fun. 🤔
Was thinking #OnePlus originally, the 12 should drop around February
I tend to think the Pixel 8 will probably outperform the OnePlus on pixel-peeping. But that lack of manual camera control is almost a deal breaker for me.
I know the camera app is due an update, but by how much? 🤔
My cell phone is 7 years old and the screen is cracked from top to bottom and side to side. When the camera started started to fail, I decided to get a new phone since there have been big improvements in phone cameras. These pictures were taken at 0.5x magnification, 1x mag and 5x mag with the newest iPhone. Apart from cropping, these pictures are not improved. I think this camera will be fun to use. #photography #phonephotography #sky #flowers #berries
A short soggy wander in my local woods yesterday. It was much too wet for my camera so these are all with my phone, a Google Pixel 7
Out and about photographing some reflections today. These are phone pics taken in a car park of an old abandoned factory ( The factory building is long gone). I love wandering around there, it's a great place for photography but the ground does often get very slippery when it's wet
This Window Friday goes for all of you who are at a hospital.
I have a jillion pics like this one, taken during a long time when I was hospitalized. It helped me to try and find some beauty around me. I was lucky to have that window, and the fact that the sun set precisely behind the tallest building brought me some unexpected joy.
Good luck, stay strong and, if you can, fight for public universal healthcare.
We often thank people for writing image descriptions here. And we should; they're awesome! So please consider this post as only applying to those awesome folks who describe their images, and those who only do not because of their own disabilities, especially if they use firstname.lastname@example.org or the Alt4You hashtag instead:
Thank you, too, to those of you who properly tag your posts. If you use any of the below hashtags (and I hope you can forgive me for pinging them this once), thanks! Or, of course, any other image-related hashtags that I just haven't encountered yet!
They give your post more reach, of course, and that's very useful to artists. But they also make your post easily filterable. This means that sometimes, when there is a little too much of everything, I can temporarily lessen the amount of images on my timeline.
Please do not take this as proof that image descriptions are useless. They're not! I for one still very much enjoy them. There's a reason why #Caturday, #CatsOfMastodon, #DogsOfMastodon, etc. are not in the below list, though tagging those is still great! It's because I cannot imagine a day when I'd feel overwhelmed by cute animal pic descriptions.
But ... while I often want to be a part of your world, there are days when I don't feel like it. When I'd rather enjoy the text that is common to all of us, the reason I came here. Or perhaps all the cool audio stuff my friends are posting (which should also be described and hashtagged for deaf and hard of hearing folks!) Filtering allows me to do that on a platform that doesn't support blocking media, while still recieving some images that I *am* interested in, and not having to mute any of you wonderful people.
I know "thank you for letting me filter and ignore your stuff" is not the kindest statement, but ... yeah, still.
