The great irony this week is that the theme for the Smartphone Challenge is ‘who inspires you?’ and I have rarely felt so uninspired in my entire life.
However, to get round the inherent difficulties this week I have – and I freely admit it – cheated. Here’s how.
If you have ever looked at my other blog you’ll have quickly picked up that I am a huge fan of the Grateful Dead and I truly do find their endless inventiveness an inspiration. So, using my smartphone, I took this screenshot of a photograph of Jerry Garcia.
And that’s what you’re getting for this week.
52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 24 Who Inspires You?

A month or so ago, during the school half-term holiday, we went with our ten-year old grandsons to an indoor climbing centre.
This photograph was taken with an (old) iPhone, so not the best quality, but it certainly conveys a message to match Frank’s theme for this week.

Having a camera means seeing the world with a photographer’s eye. It can also mean being able to see things that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye. That’s inspiring.
This photograph illustrates the point. Last weekend was the annual airshow (‘estevol’) at Blond. It was a cloudy, overcast day which at least meant that the sky provided a good neutral background. It was also very windy.
One of the regular features of the estevol is a very colourful display of kites. The wind was perfect for flying them, but it took a camera – and only 1/8000 of a second – to ‘freeze’ this particular ‘cerf-volant’, which otherwise would have been just a blur.
