More Phone Shots

I will do my post backwards today,starting with the 
Thought for Today:
I am sending this out to all my Blogging and Facebook friends.


Since the phone is always with me,I tend to take some unusual shots with it.
While slicing a lemon,I had the idea that the slices would make a pretty picture.

Add a whole lemon and behold,another picture.The colour of the lemon looks as refreshing as a glass of cold water with a slice of lemon added.


There are a multitude of Apps available for the iPhone,and perhaps for others as well.
I cannot remember which App I used for this sparkle effect,but I think it fits the scene quite well.

An App which I have used more often is this one.It is called, Water My Photo,and it's free.
Once again it may be kind of useless,but it's fun and it's free.

Here is another picture done with the same App.

I am not advertising on behalf of these Apps,but am only sharing what I am using.
I do take my photography seriously,but I also like having fun with some of the pictures.
Thanks for allowing me to share these.

  2. I cannot wait to get our new iPhone. Our current contract runs out in April or May --so we'll bite the bullet and buy an iPhone. I'll probably have lots of questions!!!!

    Love your photos. The sparkle effect is neat --and of course, I love the water one...

    Hope you are having a good week.
    Hugs,

  11. I love your thought for the day today and the phone photos are absolutely stunning. I have the water one but will be on the search for the sparkle one. I am always disappointed when I see the sparkles but the camera never seems to capture them.

  15. HI Ruth I Love the app that you have on your phone and the shots you have created with it. Stunning. I don't have that kind of a phone but an IPad. I can't find anything like that on it. I wonder does anyone else have any idea about that?

    Lemons are always refreshing. I make sure to add lemon juice to my smoothies for an extra zing.

  31. You are a very wise woman Ruth. We all need to play like children and find new things and as the weather sends you indoors you still find that useful things can become great toys to play with and created unusual effects. Good for you!
