iPhone Wednesday # 48: Suspended Animation


Suspended Animation

Oblivious to the panorama of the bay and city skyline behind her, a school girl on an end of the year outing with her class climbed an arching ladder of a play structure and hung upside down while chatting with her classmates.
It's my iPhone Wednesday shot for you, where the image and any editing are done using an iPhone and available apps.

That's stunning, Kim ~ I know zip about the techniques, but I love the end result.

Gosh, the things you can do (How would I know?) with an iPhone. Hmmm...should I get one? Excellent shot.

Excellent shot and work indeed. What a great angle to enjoy Seattle's skyline...

I love her upside-down nonchalance! It's incredible you can get this kind of photo with your iPhone-- I'd be tempted to get one, but I know I wouldn't learn how to use it to this effect!

I'm hoping to come down to your neck of the woods sometime next month... although knowing my kids, we may just end up going to the zoo! I'll let you know, though. It would be fun to meet up!

Ahhh... the carefree days of youth. Nice iPhone shot!

Julie said...

Beautiful shot, it makes me nostalgic for my own monkeybar days.

Thanks so much, guys! Really, the iPhone is the ultimate in point and shoot. Depending on what app you use, the effects are usually "built in." For instance, this application called Hipstamatic offers 7 lenses and 8 film types and several flash effects. These are effects, not real settings. You can pick and choose, or, like I did here, simply turn on your iPhone, choose this app, shake the iPhone and the app will randomly choose which effects to try. This took no thinking (other than seeing the frame within a frame composition) and all of 3 seconds to produce. . .no editing afterward. Shake it again and you get something new on the random setting.

That sounds like an incredibly cool app! Great pic!

Kim - this is simply one of the best photos I've ever seen on CDP. The composition is brilliant and the image itself is haunting. I generally don't like the mostly B&W - bit of color style but it works here. I'd buy a print of this (or swap you one).

this is a wonderful photo. It works on so many levels, not the least of which is emotional.

Beyond "cool."

Wow. After reading the legend, I looked again. I had not seen the girl.

Wonderful shot Kim!
Great spontaneity and freshness.
