I got an iPhone for Christmas. Thanks, mom and dad! I was somewhat resistant. I’m not a Luddite. I just didn’t think I really needed it. I don’t stray far from home. Emails can wait until I return….. But that camera. Wow. And zipping a picture off to the people who must see it, whilst standing on the sidewalk, is a real treat. Don’t know how I ever survived without it. The first apps I looked for were photography editing ones. Sometimes pictures look so much better with fun tints to them, or a sparkle added here or a cool frame added there. It’s almost like painting on photographs. I can’t resist. (You don’t need an iPhone. You can use a digital camera, load pics onto your computer and play away. Then….. email away.) Some of my favorite photography editing sites and apps are:
With iPhone in hand, I decided to institute A-Picture-A-Day with my sister, who also got an iPhone for Christmas (thanks again, mom and dad) and lives far away in Michigan. I thought it would be a fun way to keep in touch. It’s so easy. It’s so fun. You should set this in motion with someone you love. It’s almost like being there. Almost.
Here are a few of our pictures so far. We are only two weeks in and it’s been oh so much fun.
