iPhone Photo Challenge – Week 1
by Val O. Morris | Apr 8, 2015 | Photography |
Welcome to the week 1 recap!
What an interesting week it was. The week started off with a rainbow but also a death in the family. In times of grief, it’s easy to only see the negative, and this photo challenge helped to remind me of the beauty in our lives. The warmer spring weather also lent itself to playing outside with our dogs. You’ll see a couple of photos of our chocolate Lab, Ryker-Man. Our other Lab has the attention span of a fly on crack and usually won’t hold still. Getting a good shot of him will make a great photo challenge in itself! It’s been a varied week, but I’m happy with the visual results. I’m determined to continue this iPhone Photo Challenge until the end of April. It’ll be great to challenge myself with different types of photos.
“Following the Rainbow” – What I like about this picture is how the road curves to the left, while the rainbow veers off to the right. If you look closely you can see not only a faint double rainbow but tire tracks that appear to be following the rainbow.
Hiiiii! As soon as I lowered my iPhone, I got a slobbery kiss.
A beautiful yellow rose from a funeral flower arrangement. Especially in a time of grief, it’s important to remember to stop and smell the roses, for there is beauty in the world and in our lives.

Getting ready for a hike! These Sawyer mini water filtration systems are super cool. So small/light!
Macro is one of my favorite ways to practice photography. There’s beauty in the smaller, more intimate details.
Ryker-Man posing with his ball. He was rewarded with a game of fetch for sitting pretty for me. Even at 8 years old, this picture reminds me that he’s still very much a puppy at heart. Aren’t all Labs?
