Taken with Motorola Droid X Using HDR Camera

Taken while climbing over the rockslide that occurred back in 2008 or 2009. I can’t remember the exact date that we were told but the path was definitely blocked off. We just ignored the signs and walked through anyway. Definitely worth it.

Taken with Motorola Droid X Using HDR Camera

In anticipation of Instagram on Android, I present to the world: A vintage style picture from Yosemite National Park in January.

If you look in the very back, you can see part of Half Dome.

Oh, and I’m now a community manager over at, the office is awesome and I’ll post a picture soon.


The First Photo that I Ever Took with a Cell Phone

First Cell Phone Photo I Ever Took

Taken using Sony Ericsson W580i

Welcome to Peregrine Platforms. This is a blog dedicated to anything presented on an usual, or peregrine, platform. Specifically, awesome pictures taken from cellular phones. And for for the most part, that’s exactly what you’ll find on this site.

I got my first camera phone back in 2008 and this is the first picture I ever took with it. I remember looking at it afterwards and thinking “damn, I don’t even need a real camera. This is awesome.” Ever since then I’ve been using my phones to capture my daily life and adventures. And not only have I gotten better at is, but the technology has made it exponentially easier and better as well.

Mobile phone photography has become a lot more mainstream with the introduction of things like Facebook and Instagram as of late, however, the platform is still relatively unconventional and limited. Which means there is a lot of room to grow, experiment to accomplish awesome things.

So here’s to hopefully curating some of the most fascinating, unique and quality photographs taken with cell phones. It will be interesting to see how the field of mobile phone photography evolves over the next couple of years with the introduction of more powerful technology, apps and accessories. What direction do you think it is headed in?
