App Happy

I realise that not everyone likes grunge effects, old film looks and arty-looking borders for iPhone photos. So although I've started liking all of those options more and more, sometimes you just have to try less drastic methods, right? So here's another windmill shot from my iPhone (I just happe...

Snapseed Windmill

Looking through my pictures from last Saturday, I can see a few more shots that may be worth showing you. Snapseed is quickly becoming one of my favourite apps. I quite like all the diverse possibilities it offers to almost instantly and very easily transform an ordinary shot into something speci...

(Not) An Old Dutch Master

I was taking a drive with Ashley and decided to make a slight detour to look at one of my favourite windmills. The sky looked pretty good, there was good light (which was about to disappear behind big grey clouds), so it seemed like a good moment to take out the iPhone and see what it could make of ...

Going Bananas

I put my fruit bowl (actually an oven dish that I treat as a multi-functional object and use it as a fruit bowl when not in use in the oven) away yesterday to take pictures of some objects on my table, but then I decided that the bananas actually looked quite good, too, and put them back in the spot...

Percolator

Quite a few iPhone photography apps make you wonder if you should take them seriously, but Percolator is clearly meant to be just a bit of fun. It creates either bubble mosaics from your photos, or star-filled pictures. The bubbles supposedly come from boiling water to fill the percolator, and t...

Lo-Mob Lamp

Sometimes itīs good to get away from the desk at home, and get out and about. At least I get to see things I donīt usually see. This is one of those things. Okay, nothing shockingly spectacular, itīs just a lamp. But thereīs something about it that I like. And Lo-Mob on my iPhone made it look a ...

iPhone Play In The Snow

Ashley and I went out into the snowy woods today to have a play - she with snow, logs, branches and things like that, and me with my iPhone and a handful of photo apps. I would tell you in detail what I did with the different apps, and how usable I thought they were, but to be quite honest I move...

Second Chance

Years ago I made an attempt to turn a colour photo taken at Samphire Hoe, near Dover, into a faux infrared image - but not very successfully, I should add. So when I knew I would be passing the location again last month, I made sure I had my IR-converted old G2 with me to give myself a better sh...

Goodbye Nokiagraphy

Before I make the definitive switch to my new iPhone, I thought I'd have a look to see if there were any usable images left on my Nokia E71. "And, were there any usable images on it?" you may ask. Well ... er ... that all depends on your definition of "usable", I suppose. I'll le...

Fisheye Lite

Some more app testing going on here. I'm still on the free ones, although I've now also downloaded a number of paid ones, including of course the famous Hipstamatic app. But let's do another free app first: Fisheye Lite. This is just a set of distortion filters, it has nothing to do with real fis...

I temporarily have two phones - I still use my Nokia E71, for which the contract hasn't run out yet (it will soon, though), and my new phone has already arrived, a brand new iPhone 4s. And of course I've started trying out some apps on it, I couldn't resist. I thought I'd start with some free app...

Pop Art

No Andy Warhol here, I'm afraid, but something completely different. More like Soda Pop Art, really. Oh, and speaking of different, some of the observant members may notice a striking similarity between what I uploaded to the Gallery today and the picture in this blog post. (But there are also disti...

Late Christmas Decorations

In Bruges, they still had the Christmas decorations and lights, last week. I had fun walking around all evening, shooting this and that - decorated and lit houses, church towers, etc. It was a nice evening. Here's a sample of what I saw:

More from Bruges

Looking at chocolatiers' windows is a lot safer in the evenings, when they're closed. And Bruges has quite a few chocolatiers, as I found out last week when I spent an evening there. The old town centre is very nice, with lots of historic buildings, but some of those buildings house attractive sh...

Chocoholics Anonymous

Health Warning: This blog post contains text and images that may have harmful effects on those suffering from chocoholism. Walking through the historic town centre of Brugge last week I was looking at the shop windows, and the many chocolatier's shop windows made me think of David's Christmas cho...
