Thorn and Glass - My Mobilography For Sale

My Entries to The Android Photo Awards

  • The Android Photo Awards

Well, I lost. And I also won. Alina Rudya was the well deserving first place winner of the Android Photo Awards. I am happy to say I won the first quarter, had a number of images in the category shortlist, and won the travel category. I am both elated and honored. There was really strong competition. A wholehearted congratulations to all those who participated!

To celebrate, I am publishing here those 100 images that I entered into the Android Photo Awards. I am doing so to share what I have accomplished over this last year or so in mobile photography.

  • The Images

I place them in that order I roughly entered them to the Awards, as I find it enjoyable to see them fairly chronologically, as I developed (or digressed) in skill. Some of these were later modified, for entry into the contest, but I include some variation of them here. Some of them have my JMD watermark, as they are a bit older. I have renamed some of them, finding that time has caused my thinking about them to have changed. Some titles have been changed simply because the entries, in the APA, would be out of context, and so, wouldn’t make sense. All of them were shot and edited on either my Galaxy S3 or S5. I place them here as a sort of portfolio of the variety of my work. I hope you enjoy the collection. I began my entries to the Android Photo Awards with one of my signature works, In Black and White.
