Too bad I don’t have a phone at all, let alone a smart phone (at the moment since some months) 😦
I’ll cheat a bit and take my old crap camera which I often take out at times with me usually in one of my pockets, similar to it.
It’s here: our first phoneography challenge!
To kick this off, grab your phone and head out the door. That’s right — get on your feet and go outside to explore — and document — where you live. I want to see your neighborhood: The path you take for your daily morning run. Your local coffee shop or dive bar. The nearby alley of street and community art. A shot of the intersection that perfectly captures the bustle of your own corner of town. Or a serene landscape view of your village:
For this inaugural phoneography challenge, document where you live with just your phone. I’ll leave it to you to decide how best to capture it; you can post a shot like the one above, or get creative with angles. Maybe you want to get low, as suggested by our recent guest photographer Christopher Martin, as shown in this street shot in Oxford:
Or perhaps you want to zoom out and show us a view of your entire city from a favorite spot, like this shot of Los Angeles from up high in the Los Feliz neighborhood at the Griffith Observatory:
For this challenge, I really encourage you to use your camera phone to snap a picture, then create and publish a new post from your WordPress.com app. (I covered mobile app basics in Wednesday’s “Blogging on the Go” post, so take a peek if you need a refresher and download the app you need to get started.) But ultimately, use any camera you’d like for this and future phoneography challenges — we won’t disqualify your submission if you simply can’t stay away from your regular camera.
In addition to your image, type some text in the editor screen, too — tell us about the snapshot and more about your neighborhood, town, or city:
You can publish a single image in your post, but if you’re looking for an advanced challenge, upload multiple photos and tell a story with a mini photo essay — created entirely on your phone.
In a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that reveals your NEIGHBORHOOD.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag. You can also link to this post to create a pingback here and to encourage more people to participate.

Sometimes the angle of a photo can say a lot!
Here’s an iPhone photo of some neighborhood kids. Captured by a woman with depression.
