Honeycomb Morning

honeycomb morningDepending on your age and location, you might be reminded of honeycomb cereal. It was (is??) a weird, bland, big, kids’ cereal that had a commercial that would stick in your head for hours. “Honeycomb’s big, yeah yeah yeah, it’s not small, no no no…”. In this photo, taken yesterday, I decided to use the “Honeycomb” effect. The photo was rather painterly, so I wanted to push its inherent qualities with a little stylization.  I used the Pixelmator program.

Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood

How exciting! Phoneography! So, this was REALLY a challenge, as my phone is not only not a “smart” phone, but a real cheap-o. The phone is a Huawei Pillar and the camera has “VGA Resolution” which mean .3 megapixels. Yes, you read that right!!!!! Ha ha! But I pay $25 a month and have 300 voice minutes and unlimited texting. I can even play UNO on it as well as Bubble-Bash. SO, I got that going for me. Anyway, back to the task at hand. These photos are so bad…(how bad are they) yes, I am that old,  photos from my phone probably would not even hold up in court as evidence. So, I took a few photos around my house, down the street, a reflection of Ruby looking out the door at me on my deck and my backyard,with a window reflection of the sunset, my normal daily stuff. And, since they all stunk, I played with them on the “Pixelmator”. Apple’s photo fun program I bought since I still haven’t been able to put my Photoshop on my new computer. I don’t think my camera phone is something I would want to use for really anything in the future, but for this it was fun. And I learned what “VGA Resolution” means. I bet it stands for Really Grainy Ass-pointless resolution .
