April's calendar freebie
It only seems appropriate that April's calendar page originates with an iPhone photograph. I haven't touched a "real" camera since I got the darned thing! Not that I've abandoned them....heavens, no. It's just that I've been enamoured with this new gadget and am constantly looking at items around my home with fresh eyes. Like the pot of purple tulips a neighbour generously gifted me with for bringing her back some grocery goodies from the U.S. on our winter getaway. A sweet gesture and now that they're blooming, a wonderful photographic opportunity I refused to let slip away. I brought one of the tulip images into photoshop and the result is the calendar page, above. Just click on it and you'll go to its page on Flickr, where the "all sizes" button will let you download the size of your choice. I think it would be great wallpaper for the month; it should also print out to a respectable five or six inches square if you want to stick it on your fridge or filing cabinet.
The following two shots were also taken with the iPhone (all three photos here were taken with the Hipstamatic app, quickly becoming a huge favourite of mine).
My next iPhone adventure will likely be to add to the Hipstamatic app's selection of "lenses" and "film", as my understanding is that there are several add-on packs you can buy. Uh-oh.
And thanks to all of you who have asked after my health. Today I actually started to feel like myself again...yay!
