In Antigua, Guatemala, the transportation is as colorful as the surroundings. Hover over each photo to see a description.
I was in St. Louis last week where all the trees were in bloom, especially those beautiful Redbuds. It was beautiful enough to make allergy sufferers ignore their sneezing.
We’re not there yet in Minneapolis, which is what makes the annual “Art in Bloom” event at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts so popular. Gorgeous flowers bloom along side the art, no matter what the weather.
With his crazy mismatched eyes, this Husky looks a little threatening, like he’s about to pounce and make a tasty dinner of you. Instead, he was just hanging out on the roof of a building in San Andres Xecul, in the highlands of Guatemala, very curious, watching us gringos go by. For more on my bike trip there, see my previous post, Poco a Poco.
The Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous monuments in the world, which means it has
been photographed at every possible angle and every time of day since construction began in 1887. But I’m not so interested in telling you about the Eiffel Tower as I am in letting you know about an an app that that I’ve had great fun playing with, Waterlogue, which turns photos into some pretty cool watercolor painting-like images. It works on any Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that is running iOS version 7 or great. You download a photo, and apply one of Waterlogue’s filters. And, Voila!
As a result, my photo, which is just like those that millions of other tourists have taken, now looks a little different. Give it a try. There are some serious crafty possibilities.
