Interstitial 127: Dud

Mt. Hood looked fabulous on the drive home, but had begun to darken by the time I reached this viewpoint. What a great excuse to play in Photoshop! This photo was leveled, grayscaled, and filtered. For some reason, I’m drawn to this grainy look.

Interstitial 113-116: Bunny, Sweet, Tiny, Rainy

I’ve posted daily on tookapic and instagram, but not here; it takes a little more time to post on WordPress. I was busy with a special guest, my Mom. She arrived Thursday and left Saturday morning. We ate at IKEA, walked in a nature park, and saw Agnes Obel. My Mom turns 70 this year. The importance of spending time with her has increased greatly.

Interstitial 105-108: iPhone Series

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!
