As always the fog was elusive. Around my house there was little to be seen and even a walk to the normally reliable West Common proved fruitless. Lincoln has two distinct areas ‘uphill’ and ‘downhill.’ I live downhill. On my way in to town I noticed the view of our mighty Cathedral at the top of the hill was almost completely obscured. I was dubious but I headed uphill anyway. There was fog but it only really got interesting when the light started to fade. These images were captured in quite poor light, some using my Olloclip wide angle lens for the first time.
I was really happy to see my iPhoneography image ‘Castle Hill Club’ featured by both iPhoneography Central and Mobiography. It is an atmospheric street scene captured in foggy low light conditions in the ancient historic area of my home city of Lincoln.
There is an alternative version of the image on my VSCOcam VSCO grid. That can be viewed here.
This week’s Apps Uncovered includes a fabulous variety of images and styles, from street photography to landscape and the surreal to the highly realistic. Vadim’s (smuta2006) compelling image of the aftermath of revolution in the streets of Kiev leads off this week’s Apps Uncovered with a striking image of a lone red flower, left behind on the barricades (with Ukrainian flags highlighted to retain their color). Contributors this week include newcomers Boris Schultz, Ann MK, Martin Schiele, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Dale Smith and Manuele Sangalli as well as returnees Jack Webb, Skip (Skipology), David DeNagel, Anne Highfield, Stephanie Roberts, Susan Tuttle (check out her course on iPhone self-portraits) and Geri Centonze.
