Is it art...?

Well, it was at the Dowse Art Museum (as it's now called), but this was a wall outside the gallery, on a Saturday morning... so I'm guessing this was just a Friday night trophy left behind.
The photo was treated with 'Tilt Shift' app and then the 'CameraBag' app.

Ice, ice, baby

A temporary ice rink that's been set up on Wellington's waterfront has been incredibly popular. I've watched people zooming around over a couple of weekends and I've been impressed with how skilled many of the skaters are - very few tragedies.
This shot was run through CameraBag and given the Holga look.

Sound Pattern

This display at The Dowse gallery is a bit of audio-visual ingenuity. A long handled feather duster is supplied so people can run around knocking the bamboo chimes and create their own soundtrack.
I put this shot thru' Pro HDR to increase the detail in the shadows.

Technology shuffle

I've been huddled near the glow of my computer this rainy afternoon, printing some images of people dressed in gear from the 1800's, photographed on a digital camera, toned in the computer to look 'old school', sent wirelessly to an inkjet printer sitting next to an old illuminated sign from the 1950's. Of course this image was shot on a new-fangled phone/camera and manipulated within the phone to also look retro... as someone discussed recently - soon it will be hard to identify which era photographs were taken in.
