Pictures for the Facebook Challenge

Back in November, there was a 7-day challenge on Facebook, “Seven days. Seven black-and-white photos of my life. No explanations,” where people had to share black and white photos of your life. The only rules were that the pictures couldn’t have people in it and you couldn’t explain the pictures.

There is an author, Stacey Longo, who participated in the challenge then wrote a blog post about the pictures she posted. You can find her blog entry here.

I decided to post all the pictures I used in the challenge in this blog post. I will also post ones that never got used. When I decided to do the challenge, I started thinking about what types of pictures I could take.

I took all the photos on my iPhone 8 Plus and changed the color on them through the native photo app on the phone. I did use the Metapho app to strip the meta data off the photos.

The seventh day I posted two pictures. The pictures were of the same object, but I liked both of them. For me, it’s tough to decide what ones to use.

There is one picture I had taken for the challenge that was never used because the turtle pictures took its place. The below picture was taken in Hamden, Connecticut during my travels as a merchandiser and was never processed for the challenge.

I love taking pictures with my phone. Sometimes, I wish there were more reasons to do just that. I love it when these types of events come up.

Battery Cases

I’m always looking for more battery power for my iPhone. It’s not like I need it though since as a merchandiser I’m in my car a lot and can charge my phone in it. This has’t stopped me from buying battery cases though.

The last one I bought was the Nohon 7500mAH iPhone 7 Plus battery case. I had it for a month when it started acting up. It stopped charging my phone and the case itself wasn’t charging either. It’s too bad it started acting up because I was going almost two days without having to charge my phone and the battery case.

The design of the Nohon case isn’t the greatest. The placement of the button to turn the case on is on the back of it. This isn’t the worse placement since other battery cases have buttons there as well. The problem is that it only takes one press to turn on the case. This can cause the case to be turned on accidentally when it isn’t needed.

I have gone back to the Mophie Juice Pack Air. It has never given me any issues. With Its design, it can’t be accidentally turned on either. Wireless charging works with it as well.
