Best iPhone Photos of 2017

Leslie shared this with me. Unbelievable shots taken with an iPhone. Because I'm the jealous type, I said, "So lucky shots. All of them."

You can check out more photos here

I DID NOT TAKE THIS PHOTO (see below). It was taken by Sergey Pesterev of Russia.

I feel like I have to clearly state whenever I post a photo that I didn't take because of what happened to Leslie recently.

Les was erroneously credited for taking a photo that was shown on some TV program. The lady who actually took the shot found out, got all hoo hoo, and called out Leslie on Facebook. Leslie proclaimed her innocence and said that she didn't know how her name got involved, but the lady apparently didn't believe her and said something like, "Well, we'll see about that. I WILL get to the bottom of this."

Wow! Cannot believe the pics are from iPhone cameras.

I feel bad for Leslie. I'm quite sure things will work out. But the lady no need get that huhu about it. Sheesh!

Geez. Some people get all hoohoo for nothing. It wasn't like Leslie was making money from the shot or taking income from the ticked off photographer.

In polymer clay, some artists take other's classes and ideas and make duplicates. This would cause an uproar in the community by the teacher - that ALL credit and permission needs to go to them. I call those teachers or artists "one trick ponies" because one of the most creative artists said that if people copy her, she doesn't care. She just moves on and invents new ideas and products.

I believe, if you are good, you share, and you just get better. If you are mediocre, you hoard and obsess, and soon get forgotten.

For real yah, Izsmom . . . better pictures than I get with my expensive camera! I'm pretty sure that the lady did eventually find that Leslie was innocent.

I feel the same way too, Aunty. If somebody wants to claim one of my photos as their own, they can go ahead . . . I really don't care. And BTW, that photo that the lady took? It was just a snapshot to me . . . nothing special.

It did, Kat.
