Photo Post 5.24.11 (Favorite Road Trip Photos)

I thought I would post a few of my favorite photos from my road trip.  I drove to Wyoming from Texas with my daughter, and had a great time.  We had a blast playing with the photo apps on my Evo phone!  Even the boring scenery was made fun with the apps!  Our favorite to use I think was Vignette.  We had so much fun making everything look “mini” with the tilt-shift feature!

Daily Photo 4.1.11 (Walking Bridge at Night)

I decided I need to take advantage of the really cool camera apps on my EVO phone.  Sometimes it feels like I am not taking a “real” photo, because it’s with my phone, but the effects I can get are just amazing, and it takes my creativeness in a whole new direction.  Tonight we were walking on the bridge over Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake), and I thought I would use different apps to photograph the empty bridge.  These are my 2 favorites.

Daily Photo 2.4.11 (Snow Day- Austin)

I was so glad I did not have to go into work today.  It sounded dangerous out there to drive, but then we decided to take a walk and shoot some photos.  When I stepped outside, it was cold but sunny, and for just a bit I thought “oh, maybe it’s not that bad”.  But then we got to the street right outside our complex, and they had 17 cars on the side of the road that could not go anywhere.  They slid into each other on a big patch of ice right outside our driveway!  So I was VERY happy I did not have to drive anywhere.

Here are some of my favorite shots from today.  I will start with the mess on our street.

Daily Photo 11.7.10 (Beautiful afternoon on Lady Bird Lake)

I had a great day wandering around Town Lake (Lady Bird Lake) with my daughter and taking photos.  My CF card was full, so I could not use my camera! (I let her borrow my card and have not gotten it back yet), so I used my EVO to take some photos.  I downloaded the FX Camera for Android and Retro Camera for Android and I really like some of the photos I came up with!  Here’s a few.  (Don’t the photos of the abandoned building look like a torture chamber?)

Daily Photo 4.11.10 (Favorites from NYC)

These are some of my favorite photos I shot in NYC.  The Coney Island photo I like because it looks like it captured it being abandoned.  It’s kind of sad. The Firefighters just happened to be walking on the bridge, I could not believe it! What a great shot!  I had a blast with the Grand Central Station shot.  I think it captures the energy and movement of the station.

Daily Photo 4.4.10 (NYC Day 4)

We had a busy Easter Sunday.  After we went to church at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, just a block away (gorgeous gothic building, I wish I could have photographed it!!), we went to Brooklyn, walked the Brooklyn Bridge and went to the top of the Rockefeller Center.
