Most of the leaves have fallen.
In Southeast Louisiana we are getting ready to head into winter. Well, as much winter as we get. True, the weather can get cold. But, it nothing like our friends get in the north. And when the temperatures do take a real dip, it’s only for a few days.
We need those couple of frozen days. The dogs need them too. A couple of days of sub-32 degree weather kills a lot of insect eggs. Fleas. Mosquitoes. Like that. As it is, our dogs get shots to keep fleas at bay. That’s life in the swamp.
The picture. Lately, I’ve been using my iPhone a lot. It’s not because I think it replaces larger “real” cameras as many casual users do. It’s because it’s what I carry when I walk the dogs. These days, I’m mostly just making pictures around my neighborhood for Storyteller. With a little careful interpolation (uprezing) I can make prints up to around 16×20 inches. But, most of this work is intended for online media.
I also use Snapseed and Stackables which are apps that I downloaded to my phone. Between both of them, I can pretty much explore my evolving artistic vision. When I want to do a lot more, I make pictures with a mirrorless camera and use a variety of post production tools. I can see a huge difference between the two approaches. That’s just me. Once images are posted here, they all sort of look the same because of WordPress’ and other social media data compression.
