Galaxy-S2 Portraits

Taken yesterday on a Samsung Galaxy-S2 Smartphone, Janette (81yrs last month) was just being her charming self when I didn't have an Oly.

These were the nicest of a dozen frames spontaneously shot without much thought except to catch the bouyant mood.

Very very nice Mark. Sometimes I'm inclined to think we all over complicate things.
I really do like these very impromptu but very genuine portraits. Well done.

Re: Galaxy-S2 Portraits

Thank you Seonnaidh. I totally agree. Digital devices are becoming unecessarily complex and failure prone. A car radio for instance was once a simple thing with two knobs, a tuner and volume control which the driver could easily manage without taking his eyes off the road. My Alpine is a masterpiece of digital madness, I'll spare you the detail.
Melbourne's rail, tram, bus network created a smart card that you buy and register then swipe when using public transport, the system is plagued with failures.

Four lovely portraits of Janette, Mark. My own favourite is the third one - very nice!
