We’re taking a rather broad view of “neighborhood”  for this week’s challenge –using the panorama function on the iPhone camera. Love the distortion the panorama provides, especially of the car rounding the corner at the same time the phone was scanning the scenery:

DOWNTOWN -- Traffic in downtown Ferndale, taken between sign posts.
DOWNTOWN — Traffic in downtown Ferndale, taken between sign posts. [Next time, I’ll try standing closer to the center of the intersection.] Main landmarks are Col. Mustard’s, a gas station/grocery and the Cutoff Corner Cafe and Dairy Bar. Behind the phoneographer is the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church.
DAFFODIL FESTIVAL -- The annual Wye Mountain daffodil festival draws thousands of visitors and an equal number of cameras.
DAFFODIL FESTIVAL — The annual Wye Mountain daffodil festival draws thousands of visitors and an equal number of cameras as doting parents and grandparents pose and photograph children and grandchildren in their Sunday best and cutest smiles. Wye Mountain is about 20 miles west of Ferndale.

Not taken with a phone, but just as a humorous coda for the photo above:

NEED TO KNOW -- Important instruction to heed when at a flower festival!

    1. The iPhone function does come with a handy little “horizon line” and arrow and if you can keep the arrow steady relative to the line as you move from side to side, it works pretty well. Took a little practice though! (Hard to beat a tripod though). Thanks for visiting!
