Some older photographs I have reworked using a number of iPhone and iPad apps.
The Queen Anne’s Lace image reminds me of old tintypes.
I love the coloured ones because they have a very retro look. They remind me of old Technicolor postcards.
After reading a few posts about using the lens from a laser-pointer to make a macro lens for your iPhone, I decided to try it out. I took the lens out of the pointer, used a medium-sized paperclip to hold the lens, and placed the paperclip between my Roots case and my phone the lens can then be adjusted over the phone’s lens. Hey! Presto! A macro lens.
I would like to build the larger microscope but I am carpentry-challenged, so may have to have someone do that for me.
I have done a little experimenting and here are a few of the resulting images.
I’ve really latched onto the bright colours, courtesy of the Mextures iPhone app.
It’s been over two years since I posted. i guess it is about time I started trying to get back to it.
I’ve been posting on Google+, mostly.
I am no longer working, spending all my time looking after my Mom full-time. Earlier this year I was still doing a bit of very, very part time working for my old company but the contract ended and I just decided that unless they offer me something I won’t make much of an effort to get work. The necessity of working from home and being unable to schedule my day, due to my Mom’s needs.
I’ve been spending a lot of time fiddling with my iPhone and iPad and related apps. The above photos were some of the results.

I just spent half an hour writing a post on this fucking laptop and accidentally hit a key (I have no idea what the “magic” key IS) and lost the entire fucking post. AND WordPress didn’t save the damn draft! No wonder I haven’t been posting in months. My PC is fucked and I haven’t been able to get anything loaded on my new PC and I HATE laptop keys. I keep hitting SOMETHING that causes me to go back a page when I don’t want to (why I lost the post earlier) or a key that pops me back up a line or two and I end up typing over what I typed before. In fact, I hate using laptops altogether. HATE!
I have been using my iPhone for everything and just don’t want to bother with the frustration of posting.
A lot has been going on and I really have wanted to share it but I am not even going to bother.
Why 1) does WordPress log me off every day or so even when I ask to remain logged in 2) why do I have to enter the same password 5 times to actually log-in. even when the password is correct? Stupidity!
