Today is Wednesday so let's play along with Barb and the others at App Happy Wednesday. I have three photos today, all very simple.
Although I've had Distressed FX on my phone for a long time, I've never used it. Today I changed that. After using Camera+ to take the photo and then fine tune it, I played in Distressed FX until I got something I like. Then I took it back to Camera+ for a frame.
Our real daylilies have finally started to bloom ... just mere days before we leave for our week at the beach. I hope there are some left when we get home. This one is a conjoined twin. Yup! What you see here is a double bloom, the buds are conjoined. In all the years we've been growing daylilies, I don't think I've ever seen this.
Again, Camera+ was my app of choice to take the photo and to fine tune it. I played in Distressed FX but nothing suited so I went over to Brush Stroke.
And finally, this one.
Once more I used Camera+ as my camera and basic editor and then into Distressed FX. I can only tell you that I played in there until I got something that I liked. This is it, my favorite of the three. These Distressed FX photos are way outside my normal comfort zone. But it's all good ... we need to stretch.
The next two days will be busy. Today Campbell and I are heading to her favorite bookstore for book shopping. She still has money left on her gift cards so she wants to load up for the long car ride to the beach. After lunch at the bookstore, we'll head back home for whatever awaits.
And, since we are leaving for our trip on Friday, I'll be getting my camera gear ready and then I might think about what clothes and kitchen items we need. But it's first things first: choose, clean and pack the camera gear.
This may be my last post for a few days. I may ... or may not ... post from Kiawah Island. But I'll have plenty of tales and photos to share when we get home!
In the meantime, I hope you have a safe and fun 4th of July if you live in the States. For those outside the U.S., I hope you have a safe and fun weekend!
Lookout Kiawah ... here we come!
