Procastination or something like that..

It has been a long time since I updated my blog.  Some people are natural-born writers and can’t wait to get to the computer to post a new blog.  I get so tongue-tied just thinking about what to say. I would promise to do better, but I know me and I hope I will but I am not sure.

I love to talk with people, but writing for people–whole nother ball game!  What is it that causes one person to be so anxious to put pen to paper or in the instance put type on a blog page?  I sure wish I knew.

I want to be that person who is anxious to write, to tell you all about my photography exploits, my experiments with different genre and how I feel about what i do or did.

Can I do that?

Here goes:

Recently I have been experimenting with iPhonography.  I love the apps and all the things they do to an ordinary picture.  I admit that I do over process from time to time because I like to experiment. My progression goes from a simple photograph–to abstract art.
20120926_iphonography_0446This is photo is from the beginning of my iPhone adventures.  Just a photo taken on my iPhone.  Nuf said!20121125_iphonography_0272I took a risk and added a cute little crown to the king of coffees. I also did something else to the photo to make it look more vintage.

  20130110_iphonography_0177 This image was made using an app called Moku Hanga–A real fun app to play with. Now I am starting to get into the editing period of my phone photography.

20130205_iphonography_0092I used several different apps on this photo–a small tree just outside the fence in my daughter’s back yard. Enter c2013-4-14 iPhone pictures_021813_0425Ok, now I am really into using multiple editing apps on one photo-can’t even name them all or number them                                                                               Enter c2013-4-14 iPhone pictures_022413_0367I used my phone to take this at a wedding I was shooting with my dSLR.  I wanted to be the first to post a picture of the wedding. I used an app that creates light rays enhance the photo. Enter c2013-4-14 iPhone pictures_032613_0206Now I am getting so much in to editing with several different apps that my little primroses look like abstract art.   Enter c2013-4-14 iPhone pictures_033013_0169A hole in the heavens surrounded by stars?  No not in the least.  It is a puddle in the parking lot at church surrounded with little cherry blossom petals and amazingly only one floating in the middle of the puddle.  Again, I used a light flare app to enhance it.

Now you see how fun and addicting apps can be.  I bought two books to help my in my adventure one of which is not even released yet, but I see the works of one of the photographers who contributed to the book and I am amazed with her work and I want to learn how to do what she does.

Any questions?  I would be more than happy to answer them.  Leave them in a comment or email me @

Thanks for stopping by.  ( Hopefully, I will post an update to my blog by maybe next week–I am determined to be a good blogger 🙂
