Hi, my name is Heather and I’m an iPhone photography ap addict.
I have a fancy camera and three lenses that I could never replace were I to break them… and all I seem to take photos with these days is my iPhone. Seriously, it’s become an addiction since I discovered all of these really fun new iPhone aps.
You can upload your pictures in to all sorts of new aps and fix exposure, contrast, color temperature and saturation (Photoshop Express)… you can crop or make collages (Diptic), you can add bubbles or sparkles of ‘light’ (More Noel), add labels (Labelbox), make comic strips with captions (Halftone), ….and SHARE the pictures with your friends and the world (Instagram).
That way you can share important moments and capture every-day memories… like your trip through the Starbucks drive-thru (which you are making today between 2 and 5, right? Free cake pops anyone?).
And you can harass your family while they try to eat dinner by taking photos of them chewing their food. And then tweet and facebook them instantly with Instagram. Lovely, eh?
This one is one of my favorites… the boy going ’round the Thomas Table at Barnes & Noble. Collecting germs. Heavens! Maybe that’s where he got it? And now grandma is in ICU because she stayed up with him so he wouldn’t get the peanut sick…
Speaking of the peanut… I’m still reading those books about making your kid sleep through the night. I haven’t started my plan yet because they suggested waiting until the toddler had adjusted to having a sibling at home first (too traumatic to change sleep patterns at the same time as a family change or a new skill learned). Baby K has been a trooper – learning to sleep with just about anyone in the family instead of just mama. My heart is broken, missing his cuddles, but I’m so happy that he’s strengthened his bond with Daddy. Bonus: he’s finally started to kiss and notice the baby (and doesn’t understand why we’re not letting him do it while he’s sick, poor thing).
This was my dinner out with the grandparents last weekend. We had an out of town funeral to attend and I actually left THREE of my kids with grandma while we took the peanut and went out of town. Grandma and Grandpa took us to Pappadeauxs for dinner as a treat. If you haven’t been there, I highly suggest you go – if you have one nearby. It’s been a fave of ours for decades and because it’s rather pricey, we don’t go that often. Their banana pudding in a mason jar is divine. Our standard order is blackened salmon and dirty rice (split between us both), and Greek salad (split between us both). The Pappa’s Brothers are Greek, so they do Greek Salad like no-where else on Earth. Splitting meals leaves us room for dessert… and Pappa’s restaurants have amazing desserts.
So… there you have it… a week or two of Instagram love. You can find more on my Flickr account because Instagram instantly uploads to Flickr, Facebook, Twitter and more… with just a few clicks. You pick each time where you want the photo to upload. I sound like an advertisement, but honestly, I’m not working for Instagram and it’s FREE anyway! Check it out if you have an iPhone! Then look me up so we can connect there, too!
