Welcome to 1000 Words Showcase for Windows Phone via the Windows Phone Experience Flickr group.
This group has many great artists and photographers and along with many mobile photography communities is rich in story.
Grryo has asked these great photographers to help curate this showcase and are very happy that they agreed. Please put your hands together for Aman, Sony, and Jean Brice. Their bios and contacts are below.
We hope to showcase the great diversity and beauty of the work shown to continue to inspire other mobile (connected) photographers/ artists within our community. 1000 Words is titled under the premise that “a photograph says a 1000 words.” Grryo believes that mobile photographers/ artists tell stories through the photographs/ images and art that represents their families, their environment, themselves. This is important because of the level of communication that is portrayed in imaging today. We look forward to you and your art. We thank you for your contribution to the mobile photography/ arts community.
If you are a Windows Phone photographer please feel free to contribute to the Flickr group.
Hot Air Balloon by Antti Tassberg
Nokia Lumia 1020
I was on my way to a near by lake to capture some sunsets when I spotted a balloon grossing the lake very close to me. To get a better view I quickly run to another location but I was late. The balloon was already too far for a wide angle lens of my mobile. Luckily an another ball flew the same route soon after the first one. I had time to plan the composition and capture a few shots before it too was too far.
Only very moderate editing has been done. Clarity and vibrance has been slightly added.

Good Morning Saigon by David HKM
Nokia Lumia 1020
Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City – HCMC) is a city full of photographic opportunities. There’s so much going on all over HCMC that it’s hard to know where to focus your attention at times. But I’m so passionate about street photography a lot.
Because HCMC is such a densely populated city and very mixed use in regards to residential/work/dining/entertainment all being lumped together in the same areas, it’s sometimes difficult to know what is what. An example is in this photo. A lot of newspapers and magazines is put down on the alleyways right at the city downtown.

Thinking Far by Andrei Mihal
Nokia Lumia 1520.
I was coming back home from a hard day, with a lot of things on my mind. The subway arrived and I remember I said to myself: “Just my luck, traveling on the old wagons”. As I was watching the near wagon I saw this man thinking far away. I was an impressive scene because you could see a of mix emotions on his face, the result of many things hanging from his soul. I just took my phone, shoot and promised to myself never complain about traveling with an old subway train.
Used Fhotoroom to add the BW filter.
It’s a dogs life! Surfers Paradise by Tony Coney
Nokia Lumia 1020
The east coast of Australia, one of the most precious beaches in the world. Located on the glitter strip of the Gold Coast.
Every Morning around 6am I did my morning walk down the beach as the sun rises up. On this particular morning as the sun warmed the air it caused a natural affect of beach spray. It looks like fog but its natural water vapour in the air warming as it crosses the land.
As I walked closer to Surfers Paradise I came across a wondering dog in search for some company. I followed him for some time until he spotted a seagull and darted into the coastal bushland.
I took this photo on my Nokia Lumia 1020. I used the auto settings on the Nokia Camera Beta App. Most of my photos are shot just using the auto settings. I rarely need to change setting unless I am taking close-up which I then use the manual macro settings.
Foggy Sunset over Norris Dam by Tad Reeves
Nokia Lumia 920
This was taken at Norris Dam, just north of Knoxville, Tennessee. I had just finished a group mountain bike ride with my co-workers in the sweltering heat, when suddenly a cold-ish wind blew through and ended up whipping this bizarre, thick mist on the lake. The sunset trying to peer through it all made for an absolutely surreal scene.
I applied just a touch of sharpening in the phone to bring out the sun rays a bit, but otherwise it’s right out of my Lumia 920.

I like to see everything from above it to the little. I’ve taken two steps and pairing them with photoshop.
Shooting the Rapids by Massis Sirapian
Nokia Lumia 1020
The story of the picture is that I spend most of my summer holidays in Finland, to see my family-in-law (and also because Finland is a great country!).
We go to North Karelia and there is a very famous spot for rodeo kayaking and shooting the rapids: Ruunaa.
We had shot the rapids a couple of years ago, but this year, I wanted to test my special gear, attaching ND filters to the 1020. But when I saw this boat arriving towards the bridge from where I was capturing the rapids, I quickly dropped the ND filters to shoot them, handheld.
I used Nokia Camera (I only shoot RAW), underexposed a bit, and used tap to focus.
I processed the DNG in Darktable (I use Linux on my desktop PC, and darktable is a GPL equivalent of Lightroom).
And that’s it 🙂
Family Stroll by Christophe Brutel
Nokia Lumia 1020
I went that day to one of the two local lakes to execute one more shot in my#365withLumia1020 project. The sky and reflections were beautiful as usual, and I was actually focusing on the sky, the boats ashore and tree silhouettes when I noticed the ducks slowing coming in my field of view in what seemed to be the perfect setting. I just had to press the shutter button, post process and here is the result.

Born in Ethiopia, escaped from a civil war as a child in the end ‘70. Grew up in Germany… loved the Nokia N95 8GB with its fantastic Image quality back then, but my real mobile photography obsession began late december 2012, when i bought the Lumia 920. I shoot to freeze the moment, …addicted in details. There’s no real concept behind my photos… i see the moment and love the fact to have my weapon in my pocket to catch that moment…. Any where… any time.

By profession I am a Software Architect working in Banglore, India. I am very passionate about photography. I started clicking from 2007 when I bought my Nikon DSLR camera. I never explored mobile photography until I bought the Nokia Lumia 920, it got an awesome camera. I realize the power of mobile photography and I kept my DSLR aside and started shooting in my Lumia 920. I love street photography and majority of my photos are from the streets of Bangalore.
