A while back a good friend of mine showed me this little gem called Poladroid. It's this little app for your Mac or PC that lets you turn any photograph into a very cool looking Polaroid picture. Complete with smudges and color variations.
It generates great high res images that you can print or digitally use however you want.
That's my Nati, in all her girly glory, the day before her birthday. We celebrated the day before so the whole family could be there. Of course, her big cousin gave her an extreme makeover.
I took these pics with one of my fave iPhone photography apps: Pocketbooth. If you love realistic looking photo strips, this is the app for you. I love it to death and it has lots of options to make your strips look completely different every time.
Yes, I do complain endlessly about living in a city as difficult as Mexico City. It used to be great, but now it's in the hands of millions of thugs that make life here so, so difficult...
So, I stay home a lot and enjoy these insanely beautiful views from my mom's apartment. She lives in a 12th floor and all the way south of the city so I get to see the whole of it. This Summer has gifted us with some camera worthy views, like these ones...
Gotta try to find the silver lining some days, no?
Have a great Tuesday, and here's hoping your view is a beautiful one also.
A few weeks ago I found this numeral set and I almost fainted with joy. I love numbers in all their shapes and forms and these are my favorite. They're called Pompadour and I got them for free, here. The artist is Andy Manglod and I thank him, lots and lots for giving us such coolness.
I started playing around with them and came up with this...
That's a very old pic I took of my Nati and myself and it's one of my all time fave photographs of us together. I really don't have many of those and I need to start getting into the frame with my perfect baby girl.
I found this super cool idea though Pugly Pixel. Susanah Conway is a photographer who had the genius idea of taking a pseudo break from blogging during the month of August, by posting a wordless photograph on her blog instead of doing a full blown post.
There really are no rules to this challenge, but I love the idea of using it for those days when I simply don't know what to blog about or am busy enjoying the Summer, which is the whole point of The August Break, as I understand it.
So, some days will be photographs and some will be regular posts, but always featuring a photograph for the day. I have gotten some very cool new iPhone photo apps which I need to start using.
Check all the deets here, get your badge, and give it a try.
To those of you who left me such kind words, thank you! I needed them and truly appreciated it... I am starting this new week full of renewed hope and determination. So it's take action time around these parts.
I spent Saturday at Papalote Children's Museum here in Mexico City and a good time was had by all. I had never been before and I gotta say, it's a very cool and fun place for kids and their parents.
Here are a few of my fave shots of the day...
Needless to say I came home dog tired and fell into bed like a baby.
I hope y'all had a good weekend also. I'm gonna go start the day. OK, maybe five minutes more. Or ten. Ha!
