There are a lot of things I haven’t done a lot of in the last year and more. Numbered high among those are exercise and photography. Given that it’s the new year, a time for fresh starts, yada yada yada, I thought I’d go deposit my paycheck on foot today, a walk of a whopping .6 miles (one way). I brought along my iPhone, determined to take a fresh look at my neighborhood around me. These photos comprise what I saw along my walk.
I have not actually done that much with iPhone photography since I got my camera in August (it’s a 4, not 4S or 5). I do have an Instagram account, but the latest kerfluffle has made me a little reluctant to use it. So tonight I downloaded the Flickr app – and scored a 3 month pro account for my trouble!
These photos were all taken and edited with the Snapseed app, which I highly recommend.
I like filters. I like changing what I saw into something new, something that is not-quite-real. It’s a special kind of magic.
Some end up more edited than others. I guess it depends on what I think is most important about the photo. And…the mood I want to create.
Even ordinary things become eyecatching.
The last one is not from my walk, it’s our tree at home. But I thought I needed a seventh to round out the set.
So, seven new photos and 1.2 miles to start off the new year. Not a bad start!
