After drooling over iPhone art by WordPress bloggers Rubicorno.wordpress.com and Painted By The Sun.wordpress.com, I had to try using my phone for more than just impromptu shots. Downloading Snapseed , Toaster, and Blendr has given me a wealth of new toys with which to play. Playing is definitely my favorite sport.
There is a park near our home that has been a labor of love for a couple over the past fifty plus years. In all seasons, something blooms. But more than that , it is their home and their accumulated treasures of local history.Several years ago, I had the opportunity to buy a frame that had hung in their house from her grandmother’s days. Victorian, it is a special reminder of a lovely lady.
In order to try my iPhone camera skills, I wandered the garden. Having taken many photos, nothing really resonated until I paid attention to a flower clinging to an oak leaf hydrangea. Delicate as lace,the shades of color and texture attracted me.
Combining techniques in both Snapseed and Toaster, I have taken my first wobbling steps.
Hopefully I will improve with practice.
Any feedback on tips, tricks or ways to improve would be greatly appreciated.
With a nod to The Little Prince, here are Oakleaf Hydrangea 1 and Oakleaf Hydrangea 2.
