A week or so ago I got a contact from Mashable asking for permission to use one of my images in an article focusing on iPhoneography and silhouettes. The contact came via Flickr – a timely reminder of just how important Flickr is for images to be discovered and published. I have to admit that for much of this year I’ve put Flickr to one side mainly because I dislike posting and not taking the time to comment.

Maybe I should be more selfish – or maybe now that I’ve discovered Flipboard my ability to view tailored media from multiple social channels will improve. I hope the latter. Certainly, I need to upload a large back-catalogue of images to Flickr.

This is the image Mashable selected…

Swans Silhouettes and Shadows

{ Swans Silhouettes and Shadows }



It was also exhibited at Intagramers London – My World Shared Exhibition at the East Gallery, Brick Lane, London on 22nd and 23rd October 2011.


The Feature

You can view the image at Mashable together with 9 other iPhoneography silhouette images in the article which includes the following excerpt:

Simple compositional constructs can make for incredibly effective photographs. Take silhouettes, for example. Relatively easy to capture, even on a cameraphone, the results can be stunning. We have found 10 impressive silhouettes shot by iPhotographers from all over the world.
