January 28th - 2mp Cell phone shots, today


A pink flower I found on a walk today. This was taken with my cell phone's 2mp camera, which doesn't do well with closeups, hence the blurry flower. And, this one too:



This is miner's lettuce. I remember picking this when I was a kid, on a field trip in school, and eating it raw. I read about it a couple of years ago, and one of the things I read was that miner's used to eat it raw or cook it like spinach. So, my kid and I picked some and cooked it and tried it. Blech! Much better raw, in salads. :P Cute little flower in the middle, eh? :)

I love the wide angle of the flower shot!! From the point of view, I'm imagining you down on your hands and knees, aiming your cell phone at the flower! Mental image of a dedicated Frenzy-er!

I have never heard of miner's cabbage, but it sure looks like a really interesting little flower. The green leafy bit looks like it's part of the flower, which is very weird. And the little pink flower looks great too. Well done for phone photos.

Such a pretty pink flower. Too bad you didn't have your real camera with you as that type of flower has a really fragile petal, but you did really well for a cell phone.

They both have a very story-book feel about them. Like something which Alice in Wonderland would have come across.
