Formula 1 Racing Start


I had a bit of fun here.  I’m a big fan of Formula 1 racing and shot this image off my TV.  Loaded it into Aviary, cropped and sharpened it and, you see the result.  Why don’t you have a little fun with your photography once in a while?

Illinois River Valley 2013 Enhanced


A few weeks ago I loaded this image.  Yesterday I discovered an editing program called, “Aviary,” (it’s free) and was astounded at its strength.  My original post didn’t even show the grass in the lower left hand corner…let alone its color.  It sharpened the picture and allowed me to bring forth greater color and tone.  For my friends, this editing program is for phones and tablets.  “I am not being paid to push this program!”

Doe Drinking from Bird Bath_edited-1_wm

I took this image yesterday at about 7:30 PM.  She was behind a business located next to Forest Park Nature Center in Peoria Heights.   I used my camera, an Alcatel Pop Astro.  She sure was a pretty little gal and had just been drinking from the bird bath directly in front of her.

One of our daughters caught this Butterfly in flight with her Smart Phone.
