iPhoneographymy obsession with taking pictures - daily pictures, weekly pictures, photography link ups and a bit about expat life along the way
For the first 4 years of this blog all the images were taken with an iPhone. Initially the iPhone 5 and then in autumn 2015 an iPhone 6. Over those years my photography has developed and I’ve learnt so much. From joining in daily photo sharing on Instagram to sharing pictures of every day life on the island.
Moving forward I’m now using, more learning to use, a Nikon D3300. The iPhone will still come in useful as it is an excellent camera and always handy in my pocket or bag. All the Instagram images will continue to be taken with the iPhone and many for Facebook but the Nikon is now taking over more.
Here you’ll find a portfolio of my favourite images taken with the iPhone 6 and links to articles where photography and learning to take photographs are a part of the blog.

Spring is here and it's time for me to get back to the blog. I'm starting with a roundup of the pictures I've taken this week. They are just a little snapshot of the island and our life here. I share pictures regularly on Facebook and Instagram but realise that not...
This picture was taken on Friday afternoon at Rhodes airport arrivals. October is the last month of the summer season here, direct flights from Europe and further start to dwindle as the last few visitors come across to enjoy the glorious weather at this time of year.
With a few clouds in the sky, warm sunny days and cool evenings it amazes me how few people visit in Autumn. The sea is still warm from the months of intensive summer heat and the beaches are quiet.
Sometimes there are moments that are captured on camera that really tell story. I regularly see this man driving his handmade contraption around the village roads and in the hills. Often his wife is sat by his side, they are always smiling and greet everyone with a wave as they pass.
It’s not a perfect picture. The light and shade were all wrong. For me though it’s the story that it tells.
