#iphoneography

I just discovered a terrific Twitter hashtag: #iphoneography.  (There are also parallel hashtags #iphonegraphy and #iphonography.) If you love photography, you’ll enjoy following this “conversation.”  You probably already know about it, in fact.  I’m usually late to the party.

Basically #iphoneography, et al., is post after post, photo after photo taken by mobile phones and posted via (usually) Instagram.  For some reason the clouds in this photo put me in mind of Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” painting on the ceiling of the Sistene Chapel . . .

. . . or, as Justin Bieber called it on David Letterman, for which he was then shamed by the host at about 8 minutes into the interview, poor kid, the “Sixteenth Chapel.”

Really beautiful photos.  It’s amazing what’s happening in photography today.

And, while I’m thinking of it, it’s also amazing what has happened in the past.  If you’re anywhere near Milwaukee before May 19, 2013, you should check out the Milwaukee Art Museum’s “Color Rush” exhibit, celebrating “75 years of color photography in America.”
