Sandy, nice work so far!
It's been discussed on various forums, but the reason your photos appear sideways is that they were taken with an iPhone and you took them in "portrait" mode (with the phone held vertically). The iPhone shows them in the correct orientation because it reads metadata that is part of the picture file, and knows how to orient them. When the photos are uploaded to another platform (like this forum), the metadata is stripped away. The photo appears sideways because there is no instruction included in the file on how it should be oriented.
The answer is simple. Save the photos to a PC. Then, with your PC's photo editor, rotate the photos so they are in the correct orientation, and save them. Upload the photos from the PC and they will appear right side up.
Or, always take your iPhone photos in landscape mode (with the phone held horizontally). They won't be flipped when you upload them.
