More Granada photos through my phone’s lens ~ Spain


Granada panorama

A few months ago, I added a short photo gallery of images I took of the beautiful city of Granada, all with my phone. Since it was pretty successful, I decided to do another round of images I have taken since then.

All photos are taken with my Nexus 5, and edited mostly in Snapseed (maybe 1 or 2 images in VSCO). I’m still having a blast carrying only my phone and making the most out of the small camera. It’s challenging sometimes, but with good lighting, composition and editing, you can create some great images too.

So sit back and enjoy a glimpse of the charming city of Granada.

    I think I was standing behind you when you took the photos during Semana Santa, as I have looked through my photos and they are almost identical, with the people in just the same juxtapositions!

    • Hah! That’s great.
      Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I’ll be around again this year :)

    These shots are simply amazing. And what is even more impressive is the fact that they are taken with a mobile phone. I find myself having complications when trying to take more photographic shots. I currently have an iPhone 6, which does have a nice camera lens, but still does not take the best portraits or landscapes.

    These pictures just make me more excited to visit Spain one day!

    • Hey Katy,

      Thanks a lot for the message. If you have the iPhone 6, you have a much better camera than I do (on the phone that is). I have a Nexus 5, which doesn’t compete with the iPhone 6. So you should definitely be able to take great photos with it.
      The secret is not only in taking the photo, but also editing it in different apps to get the look you want. All my photos are edited on my phone in Snapseed or Instagram.
      Hope you get to visit Spain! It’s a gorgeous and friendly country :)
