It's way too early on Monday morning and I'm actually enjoying coffee at the house where my husband lives (and I normally don't because we happen to live in different towns even though we love each other) while I check out some BSBP blog posts. I have been so busy doing some hands-on creating that I haven't opened up my computer all weekend! I was Blissfully engaged in learning new things and meeting new people at Artbliss on Friday and Saturday. Thanks to Cindy and Jeannette! I have lots of new skills to try and want to share all those results, but in the meantime, I'm going to go with a photo post...yes, it's the "easy" way out for an early morning post, but it's gonna have to do.
These are Hipstamatic shots from my trip to Gig Harbor, Washington, back in August. I went out for a walk one morning and didn't feel like carrying my big camera so I just took my phone. I ended up spending more time stopping for shots than actually getting sweaty, but it worked out since I got to see lots of pretty things. I used the "shake" feature in Hipstamatic that will randomly change up the filters and lenses when you shake the phone. You never know what you're gonna get!
I love these retro tones with the texture of these purple blossoms...The black and white of this shot brings out the contrast between the roundness of the buds and the lines of the branches.
The brightness of the flowers draws me in, but then the focus drifts down to that juicy, shiny berry.
Since I was actually walking along the waterfront, a little "nautical" shot that brings out the patina just wonderfully!
If you've been venturing out with some Hipstapics, I'd love to see more so feel free to comment and share a link! Maybe we could start a new photo-blogging trend!
