Phoneography Challenge: Macro

Morning glory macro (488x640)

Good morning from a cool and cloudy Hastings morning.  Yesterday we hit 33 degrees and had the highest temperature in the country.  Phew.  It was so bad for me – this house is rather cool with all the windows open.

Anyway onto this challenge by Sally.

I have gone for a sci fi look about my photos today.  When I did the editing on this last night on Snapseed I was thinking about The X Files which is what these photos remind me of.  While I have been beading madly I have been watching this series from the beginning – I am now up to series 2 episode 14 I think.  Anyway these photos somehow remind me of the opening graphics.  Sort of.

Phoneography Challenge: Black and White

Good morning from a grey cloudy day here in Hastings.

It is nice to be back online after a few days off.  It didn’t worry me so much but my children missed it terribly.  I just used my phone as a hot spot just to download my emails.  Appropriate for this challenge. I have noticed that the internet speed is somewhat faster than what we are used to so that is a good thing.

Thank you for all your messages of support.  Yes our move went very smoothly.  It only took 1 1/2 hours to move all my belongings.  I had everything packed up and so it was just a matter of picking everything up and shifting it.  The only problem is that my camera has gone missing and I can’t find it.  I have unpacked most of my stuff, but still have a few boxes in the shed to check out.  I will find it.  So for now it is a just my cell phone.

These two photos of the toxic weed morning glory were taken just as I was waiting for the new landlord to do a house inspection before picking up the keys to our new home.  I tried to edit these with apps but couldn’t get the affect I wanted so just edited them this morning with Photoscape and Fotor software.
