iPhonography. I began some years ago using a iPhone 5S, often with the Schneider Optics macro lens attachment. Then, iPhone 7 Plus with various add-on lenses by both Ztylus and Moment. Currently, the iPhone 12 Pro Max, sometimes with the Moment macro lens attached. Favorite editing apps include Camera+2, Carbon, Hipstamatic, Instagram and Photos.

On the left, a normal example of the tiny wildflower known as daisy fleabane. On the right, an example exhibiting fasciation. I had to do a little research! From Wikipedia: "Fasciation... is a relatively rare condition of abnormal growth in vascular plants... producing flattened, ribbon-like, crested, or elaborately contorted tissue."

A Poetic Relic
A grainy, low-light, no-flash, iPhone photo. I found this abandoned piece of patio furniture, a loveseat, sitting under a cluster of cedars on a still undeveloped piece of property here in my suburban neighborhood. I saw it and wondered: how did it get here? Did the trees, the brush grow up around it? Perhaps a couple sat in in when it was new and enjoyed the sun. Perhaps many, many times. Now, old, worn, crumbling, here it sits in deep, deep shade, empty and forgotten. Where is that couple now? Is one gone, passed into that undiscovered country, and the other sitting in deep, deep shade, alone and forgotten?
A personal favorite.
I found this broken side mirror while walking on a road near a major thoroughfare. The brokenness spoke to me. Even in this shattered state, it reflects the sky. And even in our own brokenness, we can still reveal beauty.
