Building Dandelion Buildings

I recently took another class with Anna Aspnes (ArtPlay Un3dited) and so spent some time today playing around with some of the techniques that she taught in the class.  I took a photo of some dandelions on my walk this morning and then played around with it once I got home using some of these techniques.  

I am learning lots from Anna's classes.  She is a very talented and generous teacher and always delivers more than promised in each class.  I have been very impressed and very inspired.

I am also taking an iPhone photography class.  (Both the iPhone class and Anna's class are online.)  It's another great class and I am learning lots about my iPhone and its camera.  And now that I'm out walking more there are lots of opportunities to practice.  Spring, I LOVE Spring!

iPhone photos and new technology.

I recently bought an iPhone, leaving behind my Very Old flip phone.  It's meant that I now have a monthly fee to pay, which is sort of a drag, but in the end I am having so much fun with my new phone.  Because it has a great camera (I got the iPhone 7+).  I am learning how to take pictures on my iPhone and all about its many features.  I confess, it's pretty handy to carry it around and have access to the internet, my phone and a camera all at the same time.  Who knew???

I took this shot on one of my early morning walks (and processed it in Photoshop).  I was intrigued by all the horizontal lines that this view presented me with.  I am looking forward to learning more and more about what my phone/camera can do......  And I am taking pictures on my WALKS!  New 'camera', new's all good.  Technology!  Wow.
