Email ( most interesting travel photos captured by your mobile phone and tell us something about it. I will post them all here.  :-)


The Waiting Game by Laura George

“It’s called “The waiting Game”. I find it interesting because we’ve ALL been in this position before. :) “  -Laura George


Gyor, Hungary by Charlotte Tai

” It was taken in Gyor, Hungary during my recent trip there. In the photo you can see thick dark clouds in the background but the sun was very bright in the foreground. The weather was very weird that day, we had bright sun light, snow (in April!) and gloomy sky within 2 hours. I took this photo to capture the weather that day =)”  -Charlotte Tai


The City Wakes Up (Bhaktapur, Nepal) by Teri Lou Dantzler

“As I sat across the street from this store front I watched many people pass by. Some were walking to school, some were riding there bikes to work, some were on their way to the square to fetch water. However my favorite scene was of this man sweeping his part of the street. All the brooms were short like this one. There was much pride in keeping things tidy.”  -Teri Lou Dantzler


McClure's Beach By Victoria Porter

 This image was taken in the late afternoon under a cloudy gray sky at McClure’s Beach in the Point Reyes National Seashore in California. It was taken with SlowShutter camera set for an 8 second exposure with my sunglasses in front of the camera lens (technique learned from Harry Sandler and Teri Lou Dantzler at the Napa location workshop for iPhone photography). Post processed in Iris with Retro filter applied first and then Dust ‘n’ Scratches Grunge Frame 2 applied with masking. Signed with Impression. -Victoria Porter


Pirate Ship by Sarakin

“I took this shot during last holiday spent with my girlfriend. It was the last day of our stay in the seaside town so we decided to go to the pier to see the sunset. We had beautiful weather. We were standing on viewing terrace and waiting till the sun come closer to the horizon. Suddenly I realized it was the last chance to get on board of the pirate ship that day. We didin’t have enough money to buy 2 tickets for an one hour cruise so we decided to wait and capture the moment when pirate ship is leaving the port.

I decided to decrease exposure value to reach the shadow effect of the ship on background of setting sun. Holding my HTC and having -1 EV value I captured one of my best shots taken from mobile phone.

As a curiosity I want to mention that each time when ship were sailing from the harbour they turned on that pirate song loudly from the deck:” -Sarakin

By Aubrey Badeau

“This was taken in NY’s Battery Park. I find it interesting because of all the elements. The trees, the ground cover, the East Coast Memorial, and if you study closely the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.”  -Aubrey Badeau


By Esther Diaz

“Cao Dai Temple in Vietnam. The curious thing about this Temple is that is a syncretist Vietnamese religious movement that incorporates aspect of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and even Catholicism. Cao Dai draws upon ethical precepts from Confucianism, occult practices from Taoism, theories of karma and rebirth from Buddhism, and a hierarchical organization (including a pope) from Roman Catholicism.
The exterior and interior of the Cao Dai Temple are both extravagantly decorated, incorporating symbols, abstract designs and images of saints.
There are four ceremonies with chanting each day: 6:00 am, noon, 6:00 pm, and midnight. An orchestra of 10 musicians and a choir of 20 youths lead the service in prayer and hymns. The hymns sound western, but the accompanying music is traditional Vietnamese.”  -Esther Diaz


By Keith Brock

This pic was taken on a late December morning driving East on Interstate 90 in Northwest Washington State. I noticed the lighting was of particular interest because the mountain side on the right was blocking most of the sun but the trees were allowing some of the fresh light through and lighting up the left side of the highway – it just looked surreal to me. So I pulled out the iPhone and began to shoot randomly, I like this shot out of the lot. -Keith Brock

    For a long time it has been one of my ambitions to go to different places just to take awesome pictures. It is my dream to come home with something that I can hang on the wall. This dream of mine will surely come true using my mobile phone. I’m using Nokia N8 and the pictures are truly amazing.
