NaBloPoMo – Sunday Special

It’s the last day of the November post-a-day challenge and as we’re nearing Christmas I decided to finish with some seasonal creations!

As with all my posts for NaBloPoMo 2014, these photos were all taken and processed on my phone. The lead image was created from three separate photos, cropped with the Scribble Tool, Graduated Fades then layered, blended and merged in Adobe PS Touch. The photos in the gallery were all created with the Google Photo App.

It’s been a lot of fun exploring different ways of creating digital art using only the camera and apps available for my phone! A few years ago I would never have believed any of this possible. In art, it always pays to experiment and explore with new mediums!

I’ll round out the month with a gallery of my favourite phoneography creations. Thank you, everyone, for all your comments and feedback!

NaBloPoMo – From The Gardens At St Thomas’

There are some pretty, little gardens next to St Thomas’ Hospital in London that really do have the most fabulous views! I captured a few of them, on my Sony Xperia Z1 phone, while I was there yesterday.

The gardens are very sheltered, but I was surprised to find a few flowers still providing spots of colour in the borders.

Next to the main entrance is an intriguing sculpture called “Cross The Divide” by Rick Kirby, which is said to represent a helping hand and the relationship between the patient and doctor.

The very best view from the gardens is of the Palace of Westminster which is equally beautiful during the day or night!

NaBloPoMo and Travel Theme: Colourful Comforts

It was wet and horrible outdoors today but I made a quick stop into our local gift shop, Apples & Pears, and was confronted by all the wonderful colours and scents of Christmas! I found one or two ideas for presents but mostly I just enjoyed browsing in such a comforting atmosphere.
