Important: My vehicle was NOT in motion when this was taken! In fact, this was during a total standstill, which happened to afford a glimpse of resting gulls amid a view of leading lines in reverse juxtaposed with a pause in forward motion. Briefly. Shot with my iPhone, processed with the TTV Photo Studio app.
This space is usually reserved for single image Sundays/Saturdays, but this week, it’s bonus time with a look both behind the scenes and close-up.

Sometimes, the moment presents itself to you and it’s just your job to step up and be a part of it. Awesome when that happens. Bonus: a behind the scenes view of what goes into a shot like this. Not very glamorous, but interesting, perhaps.
I snapped this image at Reynolda Gardens with the Hipstamatic app, and I’m still amazed at the level of detail the iPhone4 can capture. Bright sunlight and a stationary subject also help to get a crisp result, so as a bonus, here’s a quick look from the full-size version.
What do you think? Have you ever had a photo opportunity present itself to you, and were you ready to get the shot? Do you make a special effort to have your mobile phone ready just in case? Let us hear from you in the comments.
