This Twistee Treat is located in Seminole FL. It is a large ice cream cone that serves Working Cow Ice Cream. Yumsters! iPhone photo processed in Photowizard with auto color; adjustment of shadows and vignetting. Before taking this photo I had a big vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles. Good, but very messy.

The Jacaranda Tree is another sure sign of Spring in Florida. These pinkish/purple blossoms cover the entire tree and look quite striking against the green leaves and blue skies. This photo was manipulated in the Photowizard app by cropping, adjusted hue and saturation, along with auto color correction. 

Ducky New Home

This little duck is enjoying his new home at the New Largo Community Center. This facility has a brand new building for various community events and classes. It has spacious grounds with several ponds, both natural and made made, for the various waterfowl to live in. There appeared to be several families of ducks with ducklings in tow. This photo was basically just cropped. I love how the light was making the grasses toward the back all blurry.

The large puffy clouds of Summer are starting to return, along with the humidity. This is shot in Tampa's Cypress Point Park, which is located right on Tampa Bay and is next to the airport.

The Beginning

This blog will showcase my 365 daily photo project of taking photos from an iPhone and processing them with apps from within the phone. I will occasionally add photos taken from a DSLR. I hope you enjoy.
This photo is of a sign with the classic Starbucks logo. It was edited with PictureShow and the Best Camera apps.
This is the new Starbucks logo. They removed the word coffee as they are branching out into more different types of products that are not coffee.
