Holding Hands [SS234]

In him, I’ve found the love of my life and dearest, truest friend.

   Togetherness

 My simple pleasure can be found in his touch, the warmth of his skin against mine and his fingers intertwined with mine. 

Togetherness in the Afternoon

 

I love just being with you. Especially during the simple times.

No plans, no noise.

Just us doing nothing.

I love this image. Holding hands is truly one of the simple pleasures in life, it is how we connect physically with our loved ones especially when out and about. It is the most simple gesture of a loving connection that I think we humans have and as such is terribly powerful. The fact this image was taken outdoors invites us into that moment with these two lovers. It feels intimate, real, loving and tender.” – Molly

Call Me [SS222]

Call Me

If you’re feeling sad and lonely
There’s a service I can render

PinUp Call Me
Tell the one who loves you only
I can be so warm and tender
Call me, don’t be afraid, you can call me
Maybe it’s late, but just call me
Tell me, and I’ll be around …

Call Me Pinup
When it seems your friends desert you
There’s somebody thinking of you
I’m the one who’ll never hurt you
Maybe that’s because I love you

Call Me
Call me, don’t be afraid, you can call me
Maybe it’s late, but just call me
Tell me, and I’ll be around …
Now don’t forget me
‘Cause if you let me
I will always stay by you

Call Me Pinup
You’ve got to trust me
That’s how it must be
There’s so much that I can do …
If you call I’ll be right with you
You and I should be together

Call Me
Take this love I long to give you
I’ll be at your side forever
Call me, don’t be afraid, you can call me
Maybe it’s late, but just call me
Tell me and I’ll be around …

Call Me

Flickr [A to Z Challenge]

Flickr.

I have been a member of Flickr.com since 2009.

I never really did much with it. I felt intimidated by the amount of professional photographers there. I had uploaded my photos there when I remembered. Then Instagram came along and I would share via IG. 

What I don’t like about that is, Flickr will tag it with “square, iphone photography” and a few other ones. I’m not to thrilled with the iOS Flickr app. There are a few things that can’t be done via the app. I like being able to look at someone’s full profile, which I can only see via the Flickr website.

During this year’s February Photo Fest hosted by Molly at Molly’s Daily Kiss, I decided to upload those photos to my Flickr account. The next thing I knew I was getting followers and comments. What everyone who is online wants. LOL. 

I explored Flickr more, I found that I had been missing out on a cool photography platform. There is so much I still need to learn about this website. There are options to edit, create galleries, browse photographs, leaving comments and creating groups. Sharing photographs with the groups you join, add to the discussions. There are also weekly prompts like #TwitterTuesday and #FlickrFriday. Those are always fun to take part in and seems pretty easy too. 

I will continue to use this website, uploading photos and exploring the site. I am hoping to buy my first DSLR camera soon. I used to be big into photography with my Pentax 35mm. I just have a point & shoot camera now, however I really want to upgrade. 

I like how it’s still a social site, like instagram but with more options.

Cell Phone Tripod Adapter [Review]

Since I’ve started getting into taking my photography a little more seriously BUT not too serious. I still have so much to learn. One of the first things I wanted to learn is to use my iPhone more than I have been. I’ve seen some really good photos done with just an iPhone. I’m in awe of those photographers. I want to have that “eye” that they have, knowing when, where to take a great photo. I want to practice taking more photos, editing them. Mostly have some fun with a renewed hobby. I thought maybe my iPhone just screwed on to my tripod. DOH. It didn’t! See, I didn’t know that!!! I started shopping around for camera accessories for my iPhone.

I looked for an adapter that I would be happy with. I settled on the “Cell Phone Tripod Adapter” from DaVoice. I wanted an adapter that would hold my phone with the Griffin Survivor Case still on. I like things that are not complicated to use, but super easy. This is super easy.

 

  • Just screw adapter to your tripod
  • Pull the tab to stretch out the adapter. It fits a smartphone from 2.8″ to 3.37″ up to wide.   The tab is bendable.
  • Insert your smartphone and release.

That’s it. Your smartphone is held in place. I did notice that the grip is not a super tight one. With my Griffin Case there is a bit of friction between both articles and that prevents the iPhone from falling out of the adapter completely. I’m sure that if it was hit hard enough that the iPhone would fall out completely.

I’m very  satisfied with this product. It was less than $10. I paid $6.95.  I would recommend this product to a friend. If you’re interested in supporting my renewed photography hobby you can browse my Amazon Wish List.
