There was a beautiful fog when I stepped outside work today. I love fog (see here and here). I will stop on the side of the road if needed in order to get a shot. Fortunately, I didn’t have to do that today.* The field behind the Y–right across the street–was beckoning with oh-so-many possibilities.
I shot in black and white with MPro, but when I came home I couldn’t resist playing around. I’m searching for a formula for a certain type of sepia and I haven’t found it yet. I’ll be patient. I’ve only recently started mixing different filters from different apps to find the perfect one. Today I played with the photos in Snapseed and Stackables apps. I didn’t get it today, but I definitely had fun trying. The collage was made with Moldiv.
*Does stopping by the library to get a picture of the water tower count?
Brain fog. The consequence of sitting for far too long at one Starbucks table reading about Lacan, Winnicott, and sadomasochism on a computer screen.
My escape from brain fog: photographing the fountain nearby, in the rain, and playing with the images for the rest of the afternoon. Violà! Six digital collages.
The collages started as black and white photos taken with MPro on my iPhone which I then collaged with the app Moldiv, processed in Stackables and Snapseed, and re-collaged a couple of more times. Only a trace is left of the original inspiration, but the results are fun!
