I was home sick most of this week and didn’t feel like using the camera and spending the time to review, edit, and post each day. Instead, I used my camera phone and posted directly to tookapic.com. It was my first time using the filter feature on the iPhone camera, and the photos turned out more interesting than I expected. I really like them!
Interstitial 105: Window Light. Sick in bed; happy for the light that comes through the window.
Interstitial 106: Dreamscape. Making use of the iPhone’s camera features for an interesting shot. The “process” filter creates a dreamy effect. I rather like it!
Interstitial 107: Hey. Driving home I saw a pocket of fog up ahead so I drove past my street and pulled over to investigate. The trees in the background on the left are part of the Scouter Mountain Nature Park I often visit. You have to pass this field to get there and are sometimes greeted by horses.
Interstitial 108: Blooming Barberry. The barberry bush buds are opening and there’s so many more tiny leaves!
The tiny berries are no longer on the barberry bush. I touched them and they broke off the stem onto my finger. Oops!
Guys. The tiny berries from the barberry bush are still there! They have persisted through the roughest part of our winter; enduring snow and ice we rarely get. We can learn so much from nature.
I enjoyed watching the bare barberry (sounds like a name for a distillery) branches light up in reddish brown tones when the sunlight shone through the trees. The contrast with the snow was delightful, providing a nice background. I was very careful to not smoosh my face too close – those thorns are sharp!
I have included these tiny berries in my daily shoot twice before today. I first took notice of them – the only remaining berries – nineteen days ago when they were encased in ice. I can’t say that I noticed them before. Since starting this project, I check on them almost every time I walk by.
