Me after being out and about for a brisk walk in the freshest of fresh air on this bright and chilly autumn day, keeping my head warm and cosy in my new blue knitted bobble hat! And then some post-processing with a very colourful online art filter effect to help me smile even more πŸ™‚

Weekly Smile: 22 October 2018

greyscale-inverted-flower

Things that have made me smile this week include:-

Playing around with online filter effects applied to photographs originally taken by me – this orange-pink flower nestling in green leaves first had an art filter applied, before I inverted the image colour-wise then greyscaled the end result. I find this overall masking kind of experimental digital post-processing great fun to do, and I really love the way the subdued monochrome finish here really highlights the smooth flowing lines of petals and leaves πŸ™‚

Finishing a warm and welcoming hand-made crochet baby blanket for our as yet unborn sixth grandchild – she is due to be born around the end of the year ❀

Talking to my 82 year old dad on the phone tonight – dad has been in hospital for the last four weeks, but thankfully got home today – definitely something to smile about πŸ™‚

Fun with Filters

I’ve been messing about having fun with online art filters applied to images taken by me – it really is the lazy girl’s approach to artistic design, and I really love some of the crazy effects on what is otherwise a standard photograph.

Here is one particular orangey-pink flower head nestled comfortably within its own green leaves, shown in four different guises ranging from nearly normal to weird and wonderful πŸ™‚
