#phonephoto Week 1 : White


I’M SO EXCITED! The photos for week 1 of #phonephoto turned out fantastic! The theme for this week was WHITE and I love the different shades, hues and interpretations. Each set contains wonderful photos and I’m so astounded at how lovely they all look together. Each set also links to the photographer’s site (if provided) My favorites are Riette’s, Sue’s, Sharon’s, and Ballookey’s! Which sets are your favorite?

Next week’s challenge is to submit a set of four photos based on the color red. You can see all the details here if you want to join in. All submissions are due by Sunday at 8pm. Happy snapping!

    I love this and realize how much more I am drawn to the sets where the color palette/filter is the same for all four photos.

      I agree Kate. It’s crazy how many “shades” of white are represented.

    Layla, Sue, and Reitte’s compositions are astounding! Lovely job everyone!

      Let’s hope you can get in for next week!

      Candace, will you do next week’s red challenge?

  4. Martín on February 7, 2012 at 12:59 PM

    This is great! A love some many pictures from this post. I’m happy I was able to get in at the last minute!

    I hope to get better for next week’s theme and work it more as a set!

    It’s hard to choose a favourite but I love what Balookey and Riette did with their sets. :)

    Oh my! These submissions far surpassed by expectations! They are all so wonderful!

    They turned out fantastic indeed, I’m impressed!

  8. Kit on February 7, 2012 at 3:10 PM

    I love Leyla, Allie and Riette. All really beautiful, what a fun idea!

    • Allison on February 8, 2012 at 2:31 PM

      Thank you, Kit!

  9. Ballookey on February 7, 2012 at 3:37 PM

    Thanks for the kind mention! I really like Allie’s because the images are really very full of color, but the theme comes through anyway. There’s such great variety in all the submissions, though! Cool!

    • Allison on February 8, 2012 at 2:32 PM

      Thank you for the compliment!! Loved yours as well!

  10. Jessica R on February 7, 2012 at 6:19 PM

    I love Ballookey’s as well – So cool!

    I love the entries by Allie, Riette, Leyla, and Stephanie. My favorite individual image, though, is the snowfall photo by Ellen. So many beautiful entries, everyone!

  12. Riette on February 8, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    I think everyone did a great job, but I must say I love Allie, Sue, Leyla and Sharon’s compositions. This turned out to be so much fun to do and to see everyone’s interpretation. Can’t wait for RED!

    • Allison on February 8, 2012 at 2:35 PM

      I agree–red will be so fun and bold! Thanks for the compliment :)

    I have been starring at these photos since you posted them… I cannot pick a favorite. Evey time I think I have a favorite, I look again and see something else I love…

    I do agree – I never imagined there were so many shades of white.
