Default Snapshots with a smartphone camera

As I have mentioned here, I have been taking pictures mostly with my smartphone in the past couple of years. I'll share some of them here with you. Feel free to comment if you want to.









Cheers

Very effective compositions in these shots. I'm intrigued by the zig zag lines painted on the street. What is the significance? Do they mean "no parking" or something like that?

Cem,

You’ve captured beautiful colors and tons of detail. No need here for a “better camera”!

I wonder if this is in Amsterdam on the approach to that fabulous bridge? On the left seem to be workman’s shops or more like open Middle Eastern markets where there is not a shop window just barrels of spices or tables of produce in baskets. Or else perhaps these are various machine shops.

I would love to know. The entire view is exotic and begs for a tour operator to tell us more before we get to that massive bridge ahead!

Asher

Cem,

The mood is enchanting. We feel the night! Not dangerous at all but no one around but the cyclist!

Hi Peter,

The zig zag lines are explained by Google as follows:
"The approach to, and exit from, a pedestrian crossing is marked with zigzag lines. It also means that you must not park on them or overtake the leading vehicle when approaching the crossing. Parking here would block the view for pedestrians and the approaching traffic."

This is a very mature and considered composition: Classicism and modernity!

Hi Cem,

glad to see you here again!

I use the smartphone quite often as well.

If I should pick only one of the ones you have posted here it would be the third one.

Best regards
Michael
