ZIZO #38 Bark

A four step ZIZO this week:

Full zoom out is an ordinary looking tree, maybe not too healthy though:


A zoom in reveals bark with numerous holes from birds or insects:


A further zoom-in of the holes in the bark:

zoom out of faces for fb

And an extreme zoom in:teeth extreme close-up

Yes..another “faces in places”!!!  And I see 2 faces here…one facing right and the back one with the teeth!  And as an aside,  I discovered there is a flickr group called “Faces in Places” that you can check out here.

Linking to Helena’s ZIZO meme here.


Mobile Monday- Android Style

Joining in with Prairie Jill and Miriam for their Mobile Monday Postings. I think Helena is also joining in too!

Jill used 2 of her favorite filters in RetricaPro here. So I too played with Retrica…but I don’t have the pro version yet(25 more filters).

I don’t have real favorites yet(there are many to choose from) although I do at times seem to like the Hudson filter and the Fab Four filter. When I went to Bunn’s Creek Park with Stewie this morning I decided to shoot with the random filter option. Then when I got home I sorted them into filter effects I liked and filter effects I hated and lots I was neutral about. I wasn’t going for composition…and many times Stewie pulled me off track anyways…

I know that not all the filters would work all the time, but there are some in my “hated” collage that I can’t really see working under any situation. Some of the softer vintage ones might work well in situations other than landscape.  Maybe those for another day!!

My “Hate” it collage(click to enlarge):hate collage

As you can see, most of these are either very garish…or very dull.

My “Like” it collage(click to enlarge):

These photos look more natural(in general), but I have to admit that although I like them individually they make a very dull collage!!! And I am not biased because Stewie is in a photo: there were quite a few snaps of him with other filters I didn’t really like!

And for other android users, I came across this blog recently with lots of posts on android photo/abstract art apps. Please check here: android app posts.
