You Capture: What the Heart Sees

If there are two things I love (I mean, other than my handsome hubby, my darling girls, my cute know, all that kinda' stuff) it's
1) A photo challenge and
2) My iPhone camera.

The problem is, you can't really win a photo challenge using an iPhone (well, unless someone was having a specific iPhone Photo Challenge...which, by the way, would also be very cool). The picture quality you get off a phone just isn't tha-a-a-t great.

But, there is something about the pictures I get on my iPhone that I just love. There is something about them that is very charming to me. Maybe it is the rough quality of them that reminds me of photos from my childhood. Who knows...but something about them just makes me happy.

Enter the weekly photo challenge held over at I Should Be Folding Laundry! There is no winner for these's just for fun...a little something to spark our creative juices. Perfect!

So, if you all don't mind, I would LOVE to participate using just my iPhone. I have a blog for my "real" photos over at Stella B (that's my dog's name...I could NOT think of what else to name my future photo biz! And, I've been struggling with it for weeks!! So, that's it for now). You can head over there if you'd like to check it out. Lots of cute bay-beees... ;-)

here are my entries then for this week's YOU CAPTURE photo challenge which is "Up Close". While these, of course, are not true macro, they are getting in close. And, i have to say that these are actually my very favourite type of photos! I love this because when you get in really, really, close you are forced to include only what really matters to the photo. If you will allow me to get a bit mushy-gushy for a moment...there is nothing else to distract from what your heart sees.

I know, very mushy, but that is how I feel about it, anyway.
And this is a little bit of what my heart sees...

Thanks for stopping by!!!
This was fun.
And Have a Wonderful DAY!
