You should be dancing


The Live Filter app is very cool and you can apply various retro looks and see them live before you snap the picture. The effects used here were Nashville, Silver Gelatin, Diana and Cyanotype. This app is a lot of fun. Next I created the framing in Frame Magic where you may select the number of frames, width, color and shape of the frame. I love how this affect made the pics look like they are buttons. Happy Hump Day!

Cling to the vines in your life that are holding you together and giving you the strength you need to face each new day. This photo was taken with Qbro and a vignette effect was applied. Next I created the word cling on transparent paper in the iPad app Lettermpress. Very cool app! Finally, I used Pictools app to blend the two images together. Hope you have a week of climbing strength.

Up, Up, and Away!, a photo by bichonphoto on Flickr.

What a lovely day to be floating over the Rio Grande in a hot air balloon; that is a hot air balloon ornament. Picture of the Rio Grande was taken with the True HDR app. The balloon ornament was shot with the big lens app which allowed me to blur out the background. I then used Juxtapose to make the balloon a stamp that I could layer over the river pic. Finally, I used Dynamic Light to give the overall picture some extra pizzazz.

Red and White

The landscape there is extraordinary and I can certainly understand her fascination with this area.

This is the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. The bridge is amazing and the gorge is astonishing as the land near the gorge is perfectly flat for miles and then there is this very, very deep gorge cut into the Earth by the Rio Grande River. Locally known as the "Gorge Bridge," it is a cantilever truss bridge, located 10 miles northwest of Taos, New Mexico. At 650 feet above the Rio Grande, it is the fifth highest bridge in the United States. The span is 1,280 feet. This picture was taken with the TrueHDR app with additional post processing in the Best Camera app.
