A Photo a Week: Flare

From Nancy Merrill Photography:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO WITH SUN OR LENS FLARE (REAL OR ADDED). Sun and lens flares can be annoying, but they can also be a serendipitous happening. A well-placed or timed flare can add a wonderful hazy, sleepy feeling to an image. It can give a nice backlit affect.

The following are real flares, nothing added! All were taken with my iPhone5.

This picture above is of some Fourth of July fireworks. If there is one thing I’ve learned from trying to photograph fireworks with my iPhone and its zoom, is that it can’t be done. If anyone out there has discovered the secret, please share!

Sunday Selfies

This is my first time participating in Janet’s The Cat on My Head Sunday Selfies. This is Tippi, one of our seven indoor kitties. Sorry she’s a little blurry. She just did not want to sit still long enough to have her picture taken!

Janet has posted some information on an organization called The Lucy Pet Foundation. I do hope you’ll take just a moment to check out their website and see their commercial for the Super Bowl.

From Janet’s post:  The Lucy Bowl is a commercial scheduled to air on Super Bowl Sunday with a goal to raise awareness of the 80,000 U.S. pets euthanized each week due to overpopulation (emphasis added by me). The Lucy Pet Foundation’s founder, Joey Herrick, created the commercial. The mission of The Foundation is to reduce pet overpopulation by having mobile spay/neuter clinics across the country and to support causes that benefit animal welfare.
