Faved: iPhone Photos of the Week, 09.14.13

Welcome to the latest edition of “Faved: iPhone Photos of the Week,” featuring some of the excellent iPhoneography and iPhone Art shared in Life In LoFi’s Flickr group. These are just a few of the thousands of works submitted to the pool this week.

The lede image this week is “Gaucin, Spain” by Tess Gomm. I love the warm tones she used, and the panoramic format works very well here. The expanse of the panorama adds nicely to the push/pull going on between the man in the background, who is looking one way, and the marching band, which is moving in the opposite direction. She captured a perfect “decisive moment” style photograph, waiting to press the shutter until the man was framed between the rows of the musicians as they passed by. It also calls to mind the expression, “He marches to a different drummer,” which lent some humor to this as well. Nicely done, Tess!

Cindi Hobgood raises our awareness of the plight of the homeless with her image “Nest 2.” This is part of a larger series that Cindi is working on, and I encourage you to seek it out in her Flickr gallery. In this particular image, I was struck by the iconic Macy’s sign – a symbol of America’s insatiable appetite for shopping and buying “things” – hanging above the “nest” of a homeless man beneath. Another photograph that is part of a larger series is “Umbrella 11” by Cara Gallardo Weil. I’m not a fan of umbrella pictures in general, but this series is delicious! Seeing the images all together in Cara’s Flickr gallery is truly a feast for the eyes. Her use of slow shutter here is brilliant, as it adds tremendously to the feeling of being out in the rain when colors all seem to run together. Working in a series as these two photographers have, gives them a chance to delve deeper into a subject over time, which adds a richness and depth to a subject that is often difficult to communicate in just a single image.

Also in this week’s showcase are a few masterful photo paintings, including “Notre Dame from the Seine River” by James Metcalf (ironartist), “Oil Patch 039” by Garry Ryon (gpryon) and “Memories Tend to Get Blurred with the Passing of Time” by Ale Di Gangi (ale2000), which  makes want to run out and eat a Popsicle! Another favorite this week, “Salthill” by Paul Moore (Mooro2), is a moody delight that puts me in mind of Ray Bradbury’s “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”

So many other evocative images caught my eye this week, including Veronica Hassell’s exquisite “She Forgot the Lullabyes,” and Souichi Furusho’s dreamlike “Image #79.” Alan Julliard’s untitled image with the model airplane as well as “Encore” by Paul Brown (Phoneographer) are like little stories waiting to unfold, and Paula Gardener (Jahsharn) calls up memories of childhood summers with “Buttercup.”

As with last week’s collection, it’s always a delight to discover new artists. This week, it was a pleasure to find compelling work by Kat Eye View and Chantale Roxanas. Outstanding images by Clint Cline (clix2020), Shel Serkin, Petyr Campos (petyrc), and Leon Williams (Apped.As) round out this stellar lineup of “Faved: iPhone Photos of the Week!” Stay tuned for next Saturday!
