I just realized how spoiled we are with Instagram when I wanted to do some post-processing on this photo sans tilt-shift-focus and Inkwell filter. A similar shot was actually posted on Instagram taken with the iPhone, but this one was taken with my good old fashioned Nikon D90. This was my first time to visit [...]
photo: Ms C taken: Backyard, July 2011 post processing: Instagram for iPhone Rainbows are made in our backyard.
A couple of weeks ago I was having a discussion with my coworker about living in a different time. We both agreed that we’d rather not live during any other time than now, when plumbing has been mastered and taking a bath is not a rarity nor a luxury (well, for the most part). However, [...]

As I organize and back up millions and millions of pictures, it’s allowed me to catch up on posting on Blinks, which I have not done in so long since last week. I freaked out when I found that my back-up of our Spain pictures were corrupted. I thought, that’s okay, I have burnt them [...]
It’s taken me 2 weeks to organize my Italy pictures. And now I’m almost done. I have so much yet so far, I’ve only posted one picture of Italy on Blinks. Tsk tsk tsk. Shame on me. So, here’s one, of Fori Imperiali, the Imperial Forums of ancient Rome, the center of the Roman Republic. [...]
I am deeply humbled by the positive comments I have been getting for my pictures lately. I never considered myself as a “photographer”. My youngest SIL said the pictures I have been posting on Facebook look really professional. I guess I have all these iPhone photography apps to thank for that. Here is my Little [...]
Once in a while, I like to take somber pictures. A lot of times, somber settings are picturesque. Sure this picture has a somber tone but what it also has, like many somber pictures, is that it somewhat denotes peace. The tranquility of this lone banka takes me to small towns all over the US [...]
My Little HRH playing with Ms B’s DSLR during the most recent Pacquiao fight. This would not be her first time to shoot pictures with this type of camera. Looks like I have got myself a little digirati! Um and I are greatly thankful for our children’s skills and talents, and we hope that we [...]
Chef and I are back from our Roman holiday and there’s so much to write about, including why not to go to Rome for New Year’s Eve. Unfortunately, I caught a cold when we took the open tour bus in Florence and since we came back, I’ve suffered days and days of migraine attacks. So, [...]
Instagram has been quite an obsession as well as all those post-processing apps out there. This picture is one of the first pictures that I have posted on Instagram. Thankfully, I woke up when I heard this loud blowing noise that I thought was coming from the home constructions down the street. I hurried to [...]
