More brilliant shots with the Nokia 808 PureView
It's been a hectic week at work, so not much time for updating. Yesterday I found a few brilliant shots in my Twitter timeline I can't resist to share in a post. These are resized version, you will find a link to the sources directly below.
First, I'd like to share this Eye mirror, picture by Abdul Rehman.
You can find it in several formats on his Flickr page. I have to be fair though, we have seen a similar effect in one of David Detko's fantastic pictures (links to the colour version on 500px, I advise you to have a look at all his pictures).
The timestamp on Rehman's picture is a bit strange (january fist) but I have no reason to doubt is was shot with the Nokia 808 PureView (and I suggest to have a look at his photostream on Flickr as well)
Next up is this cropped close-up of drops on a leaf shared by Alejandro Addier.
You will find the full-resolution here.
Then there is this absolutely brilliant panorama by Juha Lappalainen from 5 pictures shot with the Nokia 808 PureView, stitched together using Photoshop.
Last up is a gorgeos red heart-shaped lock on a bridge, shot by @Grimtech, who asked what it was supposed to mean. I replied it was a symbol of love, and @moaskefoto added "It's from an Italian romantic movie where the lovers did this to seal their eternal love".
Intruiged by this, I looked into the story a bit more (Google is my friend, too :-) and found in fact it started with an Italian novel - much more pics in the link, describing how bridges can sometimes hardly carry the weight of those "romantic padlocks").
Anyway: here someone started this modern tradition on a new bridge somewhere it seems. I wonder where.
So that's all for now, hope you like these shots as much as I did finding them in my timeline. I do retweet shots like these as well, so don't hesitate to follow me on Twitter: @PureViewClub
