I have recently got more and more into my 'amateur!' photography. Today I am sharing a few snaps from the past month.
A little pond we came across on a walk with the dogs near Great Wilbraham, Cambridgeshire.
Orton Hall, Near Peterborough.
Reach Village near Cambridge.
I used my i phone to snap all the above photos.
I love playing around with photography apps to create new effects. Last week one of the blogs I follow by fashion illustrator and photographer Kris Atomic, had a great post on photography apps. Kris has posted about all the many apps she has tried and tested and recommends. This is a great read for anyone who used their phones to edit and take pictures.
