2012/182: Pure

2012/181: Japanese Maple

2012/180: Dinner….Is Served

There’s a bit of a story to go along with this shot, because it’s not the one I intended to post. This isn’t even the original photo, but a iPhone shot of the LCD display of my camera that I sent to show a friend.
I transferred the original from the memory card to my pc, edited it, and saved it to my post-it-on-the-blog-someday folder. Then, out of boredom I decided to play with the iPhone shot, edited it in Snapseed ….and ended up liking it better than the original edited photo.

I like the BookBook for my iPad so much, it was only natural that I would get a BookBook for my iPhone as well! (Although I found a much better deal on eBay 😉 )

2012/170: Chihuly At The Dallas Arboretum (1)

Aside from some quality me-time, Dale Chihuly’s glass art was another reason I wanted to go to the Dallas Arboretum. Lots of great stuff there, so look for a few more Chihuly art posts.

2012/163: Dallas Arboretum (2)

2012/162: Dallas Arboretum (1)

What do I do to get away from the kids who are out of school for the summer, and the husband who’s working from home?
Go to the Dallas Arboretum for some quality me-time of course! The heat & humidity and being eaten alive my mosquitoes was well worth it. And, thanks to the many, many pictures I took, this blog was saved from a sudden death 😉

2012/161: Cloudscape

Did I mention how much I love my iPhone and its camera?? I’ve probably gotten more use out of it in the 2 1/2 months I’ve had it than my old phone (LG EnV3) in the 2 1/2 years I’ve had it!

2012/160: Storm

Wasn’t looking too pleasant on Wednesday evening… a storm complete with thunder & lightning, torrential rain, and hail.
Taken with my iPhone and fisheye lens.

2012/159: Ladybug

Found this little lady on the window of my back door one morning. Of course that called for a little iPhotoshoot 😉
