For the Lens-Artists #191 Challenge this Lily took that spot for this post. The challenge is *Curves* and this pretty little curvy Lily became my subject for this post. She reminded me of an actress from the 30s wearing one of those beautiful satin long dresses drinking a cocktail swooped over a white sofa…

It has been a while since joining in on the Len-Artists Challenges and this one was a romantic one for me. I love curves and flattering them a bit as I do in most of the photos so I hope you enjoy.

One more note, these photos were taken from my Samsung S21. I was out and about and had not brought along my Canon *woops*. But as I always say to those who want to start the camera up – use that cell camera in the meantime. I know the sizing can only go up to a certain amount so that is not a plus for photographers who want a large product, and if you look closely the sharpness is not as crisp as I would like, however, for a quick handheld capture, it is available in most of your pockets.

Til next time,

Responses to “~Curves~”

  1. I so see what you mean about the lady in the cocktail dress! Your photos are beautiful and I love the way you present them too – so clean and simple, like the images. Phone cameras are much better than they used to be and although it’s not the same imho as a ‘proper’ camera, you can still get some pretty decent shots as long as you recognise the limitations. These lovely images are proof of that!


  2. A perfect subject for the challenge – I especially liked the one you selected for the reader. Agree with you assessment of the camera we have with us although yes, real lenses make a big difference. But cellphone quality has really grown these past few years (as has lens quality!)


    1. Thank you Tina, and I am with you, I normally pack my lenses for the occasion lately and just pick a backpack. Through the years I am an old stinker and still like to pick and choose 😉 but sometimes… I just like the convenience of small. BTW I love your photos, I think they are beautiful!


      1. Thanks Kathleen. Yes, it’s hard to argue with the ease of iPhone photography. Some of my friends use lenses on their phones but I think that’s a bit over the top LOL


  3. I love your description of the actress from the 30s wearing a dress, so elegant. Phone cameras will I hope catch up to the image quality of the Nikon and Canon cameras one day.


    1. Thanks John, they are actually pretty good these days and the sizes are getting larger with each output of them. I work with Canon and have always been happy with the Canon line up and having lenses is the plus compared to a cell phone. Gotta have those lenses 😉


      1. Your welcome! I’ve tried many lenses and find that for my purposes, an 18-140mm zoom and the little 10-50mm lens are all I need on the Nikon Z50 body. Not a pro photographer anyway… 😊


  4. What a lovely study of a calla lilly, they are one of my favorites!


    1. Thank you. They are very pretty indeed.


  5. Lovely enveloping and smooth


    1. Yes, they are so beautiful. Thank you 🙂
