Some nice pics from my phone

Postby haysi » Sat Jul 28, 2007 11:01 am

erm...dont get too excited LOL!

I took some pics when we were at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum last week. Here are some of them....I took the pics with my mobile phone.

These white heads are hard to miss, they always make me smile. One of them actually reminds me of my dad! (Can you guess which one?)

I love this sculpture 'Modesty', she looks so radiant.

Image

I also like this sculpture, again it has a certain serenity about it.

Image

I hope you like them.

Do you use your mobile phone to take pics?

Care to share :biggrin:

For a mobile phone, it truly took good pictures.

those heads are creepy! but cool and that's what i love about museums and art galleries!

i have a great mobile phone but my ONLY complaint with it is that it doesn't have a flash! GRRRR! so it makes taking pictures at night a special challenge.

i usually just take pictures of things to send directly to specific people. sometimes i take pictures of my niece and nephew to put up on my LJ. i don't use the camera on my phone as much as i'd like to.

I have never had a digital camera. I use my mobile a lot to take pics. Most phones come with the software for you to upload them to your computer. Also, you can 'bluetooth' them :shock: Of course I get help from my niece LOL!

When were those *heads* erected, Haysi ? I've been to the Kelvingrove but I don't recall them ! (and as you say, they are hard to miss!)

Hi Messy, the gallery was shut for a number of years for renovation. It reopened in the autumn of 06 (or thereabouts). We go through quite a lot, its a great place to visit.

I was a bit disappointed with the Egyptian room, as a child it seemed massive and full of treasures, but its not nearly as impressive as it once was.

My fave painting is still breathtaking

you know, it may not be you... i had the same experience until i was reminded of the fact that when i first went to the ROM [royal ontario], they had borrowed someone's exibition. [the travelling mummies?] also, the one in the british museum is pretty big, so maybe you were comparing?

I think one of my favourite paintings there was Rembrandt's Man in Armour - an awesome painting. Mind you, I am quite fond of Rembrandt's work so it's no surprise that the first place I headed for when I was there was the Dutch Art area.....

Wow, Pilvikki, I see what you mean ! You get the very strong impression that she is a seriously unhappy lady and that those two have been married to each other FAR too long ! :biggrin:

I love the Rembrandt Messy, its an exceptional painting. I am not a big fan of the Dutch Masters however I make an exception for that one.

I like Toulouse-Latrec, I hadnt seen that painting before.

My heart belongs to Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas and Cezanne. Oooh la la :wink: And of course Dali.

Jack Vittriano 'The Billy Boys' is a painting that I saw (in print) whilst in Blackpool recently and I fell in love with it.

i used to hate these as a kid for they're so morbid, just like their inspiration, the Kalevala, finnish epic of doom and gloom.

the good news: mother brings him back to life.

Nice pictures haysi!
I do use my phone to take random pictures at times. Usually when I am out and about at work and stuff. Here are a few I can share:

Fallen tree on the corner of Abbey Road after the bad winds in London a few months back:
Image

Gene Simmons on the steps at Abbey Road studios while being interviewed for the Family Jewels show:
Image

Just one of the many framed gold/special ed discs found on the wall of a customer we visit. otherwise known as the mother of Adam Ant:
Image

One of my favourite block of flats in London-lots of trees and nature all around. Feels like you are shut off from the rest of the hustle and bustle:
Image


Can we say Harry Potter?! The pile of brand new HP books I got to prccess on the day of release:
Image


A view from another place we visit-also known for being on a famous album cover:
Image



Rotterdam flower display. We never did find out the occasion I don't think:
Image

One of the 30 (I think) Gormley staues that can be found peering over the side of many a roof on Londons South Bank:
Image

Then last one from today-kitty curling up in a jacket that doesn't belong to her:
