A Ripsnortin' Good Time

While hunting through an op shop bargain bin and found this gem amongst the LP's.
There are websites devoted to similar record covers - I think this deserves a place.
The shot was cropped and desaturated using the Camera+ app.

Harvest time

Our crop of crab apples are looking ripe (well as ripe as these deceptively pretty fruit can be)... so now we've got to decide whether we need any more crab apple jelly or if there is something more interesting we can make.
This shot was enhanced with Camera+ (some warmth added to the sky colour).

A nasty fall onto a hard surface is the nightmare of all gadget-carriers. Unfortunately our son had this experience with his lovely white iPod Touch.
A hunt on the Internet soon found a replacement screen winging in from
the States... now it's time for a steady hand, some small implements and the courage to rip apart what Apple deemed to be a no-go zone.

Rolling with style

This rather gorgeous old garden roller is leaning up against a wall of Mansion House on Kawau Island.
We had a fun-filled 24 hours on the island where we were looked after very well and celebrated a friend's special birthday.
This shot was given the 'miniature' selective focus treatment and a rough border with the app Camera+.

Always best to be on the lookout for outbreaks of sarcasm.
This shot was imported into CameraBag where it was cropped to a square and tweaked.

Look up!

Kids toy meets industrial mega-machines. One of many sculptures in Wellington that embrace the wind.
