Urban Jungle Bloggers – Green Festive Vignette

It’s Friday afternoon and a few drops of rain are falling on Madrid. Funny, I hadn’t seen even a glimpse of cloud in the past two weeks and honestly didn’t miss it. The kids were both sick for over a week and kept me busy. The week was filled with workers visits to the house to fix some minor issues which minor as they were took  time to solve, hence the absence here.

I try to follow quite a few blogs via bloglovin and although I follow Igor’s Happy Interior Home had missed out on the Urban Jungle Bloggers series launched with Judith of Joelix. I incidentally discovered it through Ilaria’s blog yesterday. I absolutely loved her images and couldn’t resist the urge to style a few vignettes myself which I shared on Instagram (yeahhhh I have finally jumped on the wagon. About time don’t you think?). Our camera has a problem with the lens and I used my phone. This morning I went for another round quite different and the pictures that you are about to see were taken after picking up my big boy from school. I hadn’t planned on the fall theme going on but while I was taking the pictures my son interrupted me asking to eat some nuts who landed on the brow paper I was using as background.

Like Ilaria, we won’t be spending Christmas at home and while we are slowly settling in, the house is nowhere close to where I want it to be in terms of decoration. We probably won’t get a Christmas tree for the week we have left before we leave and I really only pulled out a few Christmas items for the shoot. I used a few cactus and plants recently purchased as well as some leaves from our garden.

I am really surprised how well the images turned out considering that I only used Camera+ for Iphone and didn’t edit at all afterwards except for some cropping. What’s your experience with phone photography?

  • This is awesome, Corinne!!! I love what you did with your little cactus and “the little things” you had , as you called them! I’m pretty impressed by the quality of your phone pictures … I guess I should have had the latest iphone in my letter to Santa since mine doesn’t do such nice pictures anymore … or maybe just add the app you use would be cheaper 😉 I hope your kids are better. Enjoy your week-end xxi.ReplyCancel

  • Thank you so much for your kind comments Igor and Judith. So happy to be taking part in this edition.
    Ilaria, I don’t think it’s the phone, I just switched from an Iphone 3 to an Iphone 4. Camera+ might be worth the try (2 or 3US$ if I am correct) and it’s great because you can set the exposure. Yes the kids are finally feeling better. Have a great weekend as well 🙂ReplyCancel
