Cactus Imagery

As we were leaving the desert, I spotted one of the cactus blooming. The blooms were prolific and as big as water lily blooms. I have never seen this before in our desert spot.I snapped with the only camera I had, my I-phone.

The original image was set against a solid blue sky. This is the result after playing with some textures from The Daily Texture. And, finally adding a quote.

Four of a Kind: Nightlights

Noticed and captured at Edith's in San Lucas del Cabo

Love this little app called Layout. It allows you to combine multiple photos quite easily. Try it.

Addlibs: a photo app

This is an app that takes any photo, either one that you take or one in your library and turns it into a graphic look. The choices are not extensive and are rather random. It gives you the capability of adding specific text and sharing the result through various social media. For a couple of bucks, it's fun. Give it a go.

Sometimes Magic Happens

Begin with an ordinary photo. Clean it up as is necessary. Layer it over a photo of color which is really only an out of focus picture of flower petals but with light in an amazing place. Select the blending mode of your choice to totally change the coloring of the original photo. I personally love this type of magic and never tire of looking at new ways to create beautiful outcomes. Enjoy!
