Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 24 March 2019

As a journalist of many decades, I’ve always been attuned to what is communicated to me and mostly I commit it to memory. I store up conversations and it is a treat for me to unwrap them at will. I may be in the bath, and recall a glorious conversation that made me laugh many moons ago and will laugh out loud, much to the amusement of my family. I may wake in the night and remember somber stories I have been told or witnessed and thus shed tears. But now there’s a new phenomenon too, to gather stories. Since the implementation of the mobile phone, people appear to have loud one-sided conversations wherever they may be. It’s good timing for me, because I have severe hearing loss and have only had digital aids for a few years. Since having these aids fitted, a whole world has opened up, or so it seems. It took me a while to progress to wearing digital hearing aids all day, when you have has spent most of your life without aids, suddenly hearing everything, can be really challenging, as with any radical lifestyle change. I remember sitting in a Drs waiting room one day and I could hear the other patients talking to each other. When my GP called me in to her room, I asked her if it was ‘normal’ to be able to hear other patients talking in the waiting room and she said, ‘yes, that’s normal’. And so, when on the bus the other day, I should not have been surprised to overhear a conversation that a woman was having with a friend. It appeared (to me) that she really didn’t care who overheard when she confided that her boyfriend had left her, for another friend (since renamed to ‘that slag’) and she was trying to sell a necklace on eBay that he had given her. The problem was, eBayer’s didn’t appear to believe the necklace was genuine and she was determined ‘not to give it away’. She said ‘I don’t wanna wear it anymore, I don’t want to think of him around my neck, touching my body’. One person who was interested on eBay wanted to see a copy of the receipt for evidence it was a valuable item. She didn’t have it because the necklace had been a gift from her boyfriend and she wasn’t going to ask him for it ‘now that he’s with that slag’ and so it went on. I have no idea whether she ever did manage to sell the necklace, for what she wanted but I was almost quite ready to vouch its genuineness after I got off at my stop. Of course, one of the advantages of wearing hearing aids, is you can take them out at will and remain in complete silence and go back to peace and beautiful memories.

Next week, I’m going to be in the gorgeous city of Paris for most of the week at a press event. I’ll report back,  wishing you all a beautiful week too.

Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group Showcase – 29 October 2017

This week has been an interesting one, half way through it I spoke with highly talented mobile artist, Jane Schulz on the telephone. Now hearing is not my forte, as many of you know, it comes with the territory of being severely to moderately deaf but I do try. I like to think of myself more as a listener. Anyway, between the bumps, silences and crashes of our telephone call, we discussed the ‘state’ of mobile photography and art today, not so much the talent, which rises each week but more the state of the community. To me, the community is the most important area, it’s one where we conjoin, work as one, support and nurture, laugh, share and take pleasure, together. Lately, it’s felt a little fragmented and there are an assortment of reasons for this. However, I didn’t really want to focus on those, I wanted us to focus on the positives and to bring it back and grow it even more. So, I steered and suggested to Schultz, we create a fabulous new post, honouring ThanksGiving, by thanking each and everyone of us, similar to our New Years Eve Resolutions post but with the emphasis on thanks. Schultz agreed and suggested we expand it across all of the spheres of the mobile photography community. Many of you would have received invitations from me to participate in TheAppWhisperer version of this – if you have not, then please take a look at our New Years Eve resolution page, and basing it on ThanksGiving, please think about what positive affects the Mobile Photography and Art Community has had on your life, send me a few sentences and also one image representing your thoughts. If you’ve received invitations from anywhere else within the community, please try to honour those too. Essentially, we are one and together we are a formidable positive force. #Together #LoveWins #RiseUP

Our Mobile Photography & Art Flickr Group is central to our community and this weeks showcase is literally a cathartic crescendo of togetherness, thank you all.
