December 26. Rural Indiana. Rain. Road. Tree.

Apps used: I shot this with the native camera on the iPhone 6+, then processed using SnapSeed, Distressed FX, Stackables and Image Blender.
Backstory: I now live in the city, but I grew up in a small town and spent many hours on country roads with my family. To this day I love driving rural roads; I think it takes me back to a pleasant time in my life. It was the day after Christmas and all the festivities with family and friends still buzzed in my head. I needed some solitude, so I took to the country roads. The rain kept me in my car much of the time, but I stopped, got out, and snapped this scene because it seemed to reveal not only the dreariness of the day, but also the story of what it is to live a rural life. I shot this with the native camera on the iPhone 6+, then processed using SnapSeed, Distressed FX, Stackables and Image Blender.

“I’m not searching for my other half, Because I’m not a half.” by Kristie

Apps used: RNI Films and Snapseed
Backstory: I always like to try taking self portraits from different angles, and use the light to create images. With this, I shot from above, looking down. I used a fairly new to me app, called RNI Films and then Snapseed for the final touches. I paired the image with this quote, as I felt they worked well together. It’s something everyone should remember, as we are whole beings to begin with, and should never look for someone else to complete us.


Geometric error of a dream

Apps used: This is a self portrait took with iPhone 6S, firstly edited in PicsArt, was given then the notes in terms of light, contrast , blur and filtering with Snapseed, final touch added through Pixlr.
Backstory : I initially took the picture without having any pre established intentions or expectations . The idea and the mood came with the process of editing itself. This picture led me, once again, to exploring the human mind in its brief moments of introspection , like diving into the unconsciousness of the mind while being in the state of REM. It may be about what ones mind projects, how dreams can be build or destroyed, re shaped and utterly interpreted , while no longer being the ‘super egos’ of our own daily rusted mechanisms.

Go Ahead and Scream

Title of image: Go Ahead and Scream

Background: Sometimes life leaves you where there are no words, simply raw emotion, discomprehension, and anguish. I first titled this image, the first in a series of 3, “Don’t Scream”. The title progression here and throughout the series (culminating with “Censored”) reflects the course of the internal process. The photo was from a slow shutter shoot and edited mostly in Procreate,where the layers of the scream took shape, with detail from ArtRage and (of course) added texture

Slow Down, Time

Apps used: Straight out of the iPhone 6s camera with some Snapseed


347 / 365

Apps used:For aligning and perspective I used SKRWT and Snapseed for general enhancement. The light was perfect and the man and child gives a context of scale.
Backstory: This photo was taken at the One World Observatory. One WorldTrade Center in NY. I was looking at the wonderful architecture indoor building and I saw this man strolling with his child and I saw an apportunity to take a picture. 

Door, Lienz

Apps used: Shot with the native iPhone 5S camera, processed with VSCOcam with g2 preset.
Backstory: The shot was taken in Lienz, a medieval town in the Austrian South-East Tyrol (Osttirol).
Walking on the old town I was captured by this traditional fresco painted on an old Tyrolean house.

Yin and Yang -BW

Apps used: Captured through the window for Window Wednesdays with iPhone, edited on the iPad in Snapseed.
Backstory: Two of the stray autumn kittens have taken over the deck table up against our living room window. There are four all together, these are the males one light gray the other dark blue gray Maltese. The table is under the roof overhang, I was going to put it away but the cats like to sit on it and watch the rain. At this point we have no snow and two of the four kittens can cuddle up on it just right.
