Whilst waiting for Jade yesterday lunch time I stopped to take some photographs. I edited the shot of a little stand of trees overlooking the Fish Quay in NorthShields with the Rainbow effect in the Painteresque app. It has really brightened the leaden sky and fallen leaves.

I edited this lovely shot of Heathers with the Toon Camera app. I love the way the app has eccentuated the colours and textures.

Wow, what a fantastic colour this green Chrysanthemum is. I remember many years ago whilst working in a florists for a few months, the trouble I had wrapping the large Chrysanthemum blooms. I notice that these days they come with little hair nets to protect them, but in this particular shop we used to secure the paper wrapping with staples …… yes you guessed I had several irate customers who returned to the shop holding a bare stem ! Whilst wrapping their flowers, I had inadvertently stapled through the petals and when the customers unwrapped their bouquets the flowers fell apart!!!!

Anemones were my Mum’s favourite flower, and whenever I see them they bring back fond memories of my childhood. I edited this shot with the Painteresque app, I discovered the style setting and this is the Rainbow effect which may turn into my new go to app. The petals have taken on a beautiful quality which perfectly matches their fragility.

I don’t think I have ever seen plantains in a bouquet before but they look stunning. The red cellophane gives some of the leaves a warm red filter.

I fell in love with this Protea flower so much it had to come home with me. I just love the different textures and colours in contrast to the concrete floor below.

Did you know that Arum Lilies came in so may colours? I think they look like exotic sweets all wrapped up in cellophane.

I saw this wonderful plant yesterday and haven’t a clue what it is. The lady selling it didn’t know either, but did know it could be dried and thought it might be a South African desert plant? Does anyone out there know what it is as I would love to know. Please leave me a comment if you do. I think it looks a lot like seaweed and have some wonderful edited shots to show you when I know what it is. Here’s hoping, I know you all love a challenge!

Hi everyone. Sorry for being AWOL for a week but I really didn’t have any good photos that I wanted to post ……. but never fear I went out and took lots of wonderful flower and plant pictures at Tynemouth market and have spent time editing and altering them for your delectation. So the first one off the rank is this beautiful shot of red and cream striped roses which were sitting in the autumn sunshine just waiting to be noticed. I used the native camera on my iPhone 5 and I love the vibrant colours.

I used the Toon Camera app to alter this shot of a Phlox plant. I love the beautiful pinks and greens in the photograph.

I edited this shot of a mosaic wall in Epcot in Florida with the Paper Camera app. I particularly love the lilac version in the bottom right hand corner.

I used the Paper Camera app to edit this photograph of a chandelier in the Casa Batllo in Barcelona. All the walls in the Casa Batllo have this wonderful texture which resembles broken egg shells. I love the way the app has exaggerated the crackled effect and the way the light bulbs appear to glow.

I really like the vibrancy of this photograph of Chrysanthemums. I edited the shot in the Paper Camera app on the Neon setting. I love the transparent quality of the petals and the rich bronze colours which weren’t apparent in the original.


This shot of a Stargazer lily was edited in the SuperPhoto app. The anthers on the stamens have become elongated and the center of the flower looks like a citrus fruit sliced in half. I think it’s great to see something familiar from a different perspective as it sparks off ideas for shapes and designs.

I think the colours and shadows created by the Toon Camera app in this photograph are wonderful. The colours seem to glow and the contrast between dark and light is extremely pleasing to the eye.

I couldn’t decide what to call this photograph and the lovely Rosanna came up with Fabulous Fushias. Jade said it reminded her of Tiffany glass and I can see what she means with the mixture of colours and heavy borders. I edited the shot in the Pencil Camera app followed by the Toon Camera app to add the borderlines around the flowers and leaves and finally the Etchings app to add the shadows. Jade is right it would make a great piece of stained glass.

I edited this photograph of Dracena Marginata firstly with the Toon Camera app and then the Etchings app. The Toon Camera app has enriched the colours in the leaves and the etched lines have added their own magic.

I edited this shot of Lupins with the Toon Camera app. I love the depth of light and shade created by the app.

I love the simplicity and purity of this image. I edited this shot firstly in the Etchings app and secondly in the SuperPhoto app. The gentle grey borders and the subtle shading created by the faux etching enhance the beauty of one of my favourite flowers.

Have a great weekend.

With love, light, purity and truth.

I absolutely love the colours in this edited shot of a Rosa Rugosa flower. I used the PaintMee app to create this photograph and think it would look fantastic on a large canvas displayed on a white wall.
