CAMOUFLAGE - what was i thinking?


While I am intrinsically drawn to more earthy, natural elements I have realized that there is a practical reason for choosing something like a colourful daylily for my iPhone case.
Like this shot.

Or this beauty.

In these days of mass customization it made sense to me to get something made from one of my own photos.  

I chose this close up of moss I took at the family cottage while making my new moss and spruce garden.  The juxtaposition of something so natural, age-old and static covering something so modern and on-the-go appealed to me.
I thought I was so clever until an observant, well-meaning critic asked me how I would find it after putting it down out in the garden.  Come to think of it I am not sure I will. 

Yikes. 
I just might end up with 2 'seasonal' iPhone cases!

    1. LOL< I just wasn't thinking about being in the garden when I had this made in the middle of winter.

  3. Actually I love peace and quiet when working in the gardens, and hardly ever have the phone with me. The lily would work much better, very eye popping.

    1. I usually have my phone with me in the yard because it is also my camera. Even then I often forget to take "before" pics...

  5. Practical or not, it's still a beautiful design. Wouldn't you tend to leave your phone face up anyway? I know I would.
