Paul McMenamin (AKA Pablo) is a cell phone photo artist and was truly upset he couldn't submit his photos from his last phone, the superior chocolate slide phone from Verizon. The pictures were hilarious... BUT he is starting anew with his sophisticated iphone. The picture above is of the Kings of Leon concert on April 19. 2009. Pablo's distiguished career in cell phone photos is sure to put him at the top of the list as he plans to submit every week!!!
So it has to happen before anyone else tries to do it...a cell phone photo show!!!
Since this blog has just planted its roots, we would love for our followers, friends and artists to contribute to the blogs ultimate "look"!
Send us your photos (that MUST be taken with your cell phone ) along with a short bio of you, a story of the picture, make and model of your phone and anything else you want to share. One to two photos will be chosen each week to be displayed on the blog along with your bio and story! This could lead to bigger and better things I tell you, bigger and better!!!
I thought I would start this week out with a pic from my iphone....
I am an artist who paints mostly city-scapes in oil, acrylic, house paint-whatever I can find often using mixed media. This picture (adjusted to my liking in iphoto) is of the MGH stop and the inspiration for the painting I am working on now. I wish there was a funny story behind it or some crazy thing happened here... nope, just a cool pic!!
