Good morning from Bird’s Eye Cove




Hardly ever carrying a camera, the phone is mostly it. This phone has a decent lens but lacks proper zoom (major drawback). The camera of course shows better enlargement and image definition. One should use a phone for on the spot near by photography, but the pictures I show are mostly of a scenic nature. Vignette is the program I have used in these photos. It is an app available through the Android Market.

Yesterday looking out over Cowichan Bay just beyond the old CPR Docks toward Cowichan Bay, straight into the sun (and it was actually raining only where I stood), I recorded this image (the options in Vintage are incredibly diverse for manipulating the final image. Once I change them they stay like that for a while depending of course on the needs of the photographic situation).

Another photo taken at that time turned out too bland to show even though I couldn’t bring myself to delete it yet. Altering it made it more exotic perhaps.

All in all a great time of the year for photography. Doesn’t matter what camera you use, photographers wanna have fun!


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

    I like the soft focus and misty quality of these – especially the first image. Dreamy.
