Flickr Group Showcase – January 20, 2013 – Mobile Photography & Imagery


We have put together another very special Flickr group showcase , our third of 2013 with some of our favorite images submitted this week. The quality of submissions continues to rise every week, so we have decided to make our showcases that much bigger to incorporate as much of this stunning mobile art and photography as we can and to get it out to a wider audience.

French Lyrics



comme tu veux
comme tu vois
comme une vague qui roule et roule tout droit
comme il faut
toute sa vie
jusqu’au jour où elle change d’avis

je voulais me reculer
me perdre dans un coin noir
comment peux-tu t’avancer?
sans direction sans savoir

tous ces détours
tous ces jolies aventures
c’est pas ma faute
c’est pas ma faute
si je vois la mer à travers mes serrures

c’est comme ça, ce monde à moi
de temps en temps j’entends des voix
des sirènes qui me tirent
je peux plus m’empêcher de les suivre

je voulais reculer
(me voilà plaquer contre le mur)
mais il faut s’avancer
à toute allure

tous ces détours
tous ces jolies aventures
c’est pas ma faute
c’est pas ma faute
si je vois la mer à travers mes serrures

chaque détour me plonge
dans une jolie aventure
c’est pas ma faute
c’est pas ma faute
si je vois la mer à travers mes serrures

tous ces détours
ces jolies aventures
le tour du monde jusqu’à ta porte
où j’ai vu la mer à travers tes serrures

…c’est exactement comme tu voulais…
chaque détour…et je vois la mer à travers mes serrures

English Translation



as you wish
as you see
like a wave that rolls and rolls straight forward
as it must
all its life
until the day where it changes opinion

i wanted to withdraw
to lose myself in a dark corner
how can you grow?
without direction without knowing

all these detours
all these beautiful adventures
it’s not my fault
it’s not my fault
if i see the sea across my locks

its like that, my own world
from time to time i hear voices
sirens that pull me
i can longer resist following them

i wanted to withdraw
(there i am against the sea)
but you’ve gotta respond
to every call

all these detours
all these beautiful adventures
it’s not my fault
it’s not my fault
if i see the sea across my locks

each detour plunges me
into a beautiful adventure
it’s not my fault
it’s not my fault
if i see the sea across my locks

all these detours
these beautiful adventures
the turning of the world up to your port
where i saw the sea across your locks

its exactly as you wanted
each detour… and i see the sea across my locks

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said.
Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London.
Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art.
Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both. Please contact her at:

Fantastic selection of images Joanne!
Such a varied selection of artitst, it is nigh on impossible to choose a favourite.
Valeri’s “Dystonic Storm” is just captivating and moving.
