52 Week Smartphone Challenge: 24 Who Inspires You?

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.

Anything to do with phones is this week’s Black & White Photo Challenge. I can’t imagine how to make a phone – of whatever vintage – interesting, although there’s a certain wry amusement to be gleaned from seeing a picture of what at first glance looks like a housebrick but on closer inspection proves to be an eighties ‘mobile’ (think Gordon Gekko).

Anyway, with modern day phones being largely generic in their external appearance, it seemed to me that what differentiates them is their personalised home page; so here is a screenshot of mine.

I would just like to point out that the background image is most definitely not a selfie.
