Floral Friday: miniature iris.

Yesterday as I was doing my blog I noticed this iris coming into bloom. It was rather fast. It seemed that one minute it was a small bud, and the next it was fully open.

Steve’s Snap & Zap: Old

IMG_5646 (501x640)

This is a great challenge from Steve. I love editing photos, just to see where it goes. I had to think of what to use for old. A selfie was out of the question. Steve used his old iPod.
Then I looked over to my china cabinet and found my oldest possession. A rather old battered vase that is conveniently engraved¬†“Auckland Exhibition 1899”. I found it in the neighbours plot as the were building a house. How on earth it got there I don’t know. So I have had it for some 40 or so years. Even with all my travels I still have it. It is just like the leaning tower of Pisa – falling down more like it.

With Snapseed I first added the Drama 2 filter.

Then the nature HDR filter.

Then the old lens filter.

Then I headed to FX Photostudio and added the pencil paint filter.

Then I added the vintage old photo filter.

For my final image I added a glow.

A Photo a Week: Livestock.

IMG_0484 (506x640)

Good morning from a cloudy, windy Hastings.

Nancy has given us the challenge of finding livestock. I live in a rural city which means that it is only 15 minute drive from the CBD to the country side. So yes we have a lot of livestock. I just don’t have many photos of livestock.

Then searching through my iPad it came across these photos I took one very cold, frosty winter morning last year.
