Sally D’s Mobile Photography: Street Scene and Still Life in Nature

Multiple Exposures@0,25x

Good morning from a chilly Hastings morning.

So, it is now Tuesday for me here in the future.  Which means it is time for Sally’s mobile photography challenge.  I have been enjoying her editing with Pixlr.  It is just so much fun.  To the point of having to make an effort to stop.  Today it is 4th Monday, which means the Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Panorama, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel).

So here is a street scene, taken during the bewitching hour of a sunset.  It is a montage of the same image added three times with different filters to get this zooming effect.  Plus I added some orange skies in another image.  The last overlay I added I inverted the colours just to add a bit of pizzazz.  I don’t have a theme in my mind when I do any editing.  I just go by my gut instincts and just having fun.

And here is a sunrise, so a still life in nature as Sally calls it, and again playing in Pixlr.  I must say my favourite really has to be the first image.

Animal Friend of the Week: Kunekune Pigs

Enjoying the sun

The kunekune /ˈknɪknɪ/[1] is a small breed of domestic pig from New Zealand. Kunekune are hairy, with a rotund build and may bear wattles (or piri piri) hanging from their lower jaws. Their colour ranges from black and white, to ginger, cream, gold-tip, black, brown and tricoloured. They have a docile, friendly nature, and – like the pot-bellied pig – are now often kept as pets.

DOC: Rare

Not much is known about how Kunekune came to New Zealand, but we think they were brought from Asia by whalers or traders. Maori gave them their name, which means ‘fat and round’.

By the 1980s, only an estimated 50 purebred Kunekune remained. They have since recovered into the thousands due to a well organised breeding programme, and today there are breed societies in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
