COTTON CANDY

COTTON CANDY / iPhone 6s Plus / Snapseed

On my way home from a quick run to deliver a new painting to Barry Norris Studio for scanning, I glanced out my driver's side window and saw this delicate pink cloud. I pulled my iPhone from my shirt pocket, and as soon as I was stopped behind other cars at a stoplight, I glanced down, hit the home button and flicked the little camera button up with my thumb. The light changed and we started moving. The side of the highway was packed with buildings, trees, poles wires, and street lights, blocking my shot.

Then I spotted a long, empty stretch coming up with just a field of sage stretching away toward the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Hoping the view wouldn't be blocked by poles and wires, I kept my left hand on the steering wheel and my eyes on the road ahead. I held the camera with my right hand, reaching across to place the camera near the closed window, and fired off four quick shots as I passed the clearing.

The fourth shot was the best. All it needed was a slight rotation to level it, some spotting where there was a slight reflection, and the usual mild adjustments, all done in Snapseed on my iPad Air 2.

And there you have it.

Hasta mañana.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

I’M NOT A FAMOUS FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER BECAUSE…

I'M NOT A FAMOUS FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER BECAUSE…

iPhone 6s Plus / Snapseed

I'm too slow. Or should I say I'm too fast. Either way, I will have to eat more slowly or shoot more quickly, or I won't ever be much of a food photographer at all.

Speaking of slow, if I don't get a book announcement up on this blog by tomorrow, I'm going to go out and jump off the curb!

Hasta mañana, I hope.

 

THEY’RE BACK!

THEY'RE BACK! / iPhone 6s Plus / Snapseed / Filterstorm

This morning, our main player's cap from yesterday's photo had been replaced by a hat. The smaller of the pair appears to have inherited the cap. Meanwhile, the winter yellow of the dried background sunflower stalks was just too tempting for me to pass up. I would be happy to know which of these images you prefer.

I finally made some progress with the research today. My order of Kachina books, however, seems to have been lost in shipping. We're working on it.

When I looked out the window this morning, my first thought was “Hmmm, Winter Wonderland. Wonder why I'm still here”.

Hasta mañana.

 

SNOWCAP and CAT TRACKS

SNOWCAP AND CAT TRACKS / iPHONE 6s PLUS / Snapseed / Retouch

When I looked out the kitchen window this morning, I saw this jaunty snow cap being worn by the taller of these dried sunflowers, remnants of last summer's end. I had my iPhone in my pocket, as usual, and knew I had a candidate for an interesting black and white photograph, so I quickly grabbed this shot.

Later, as I was processing the image, I noticed Atticus the cat's tracks, left behind as he made his rounds, patroling the property like a reincarnated mall cop.

Otherwise, today was a busy mix of painting and computer maintenance

Hasta mañana.
