Lately I’ve been having fun playing around with new iPhone applications like Snapseed and Instagram.  For a novice photographer, these photo processing applications are a ton of fun.  You just snap away and can process the picture into amazingly different styles right at your fingertips.

Since early spring, I’ve been using my iPhone a lot to take pictures, mostly of flowers.  One reason is that it is so easy and portable.  I always have it with me usually in my pocket.  Another reason is that my iPhone actually zooms much better than my small, pocket-sized Canon Elph.  I must admit that I am no professional photographer.  I just love to take pictures during my travels and am actively working on getting better at it.

Besides using Snapseed for photos I’ve taken with my iPhone, I’ve also began using it to revisit older pictures I’ve taken from the past such as these ones I took back in 2003 in Patagonia.  These photos were scanned since I didn’t have a digital camera at the time.   I took these files and imported them into my iPhone into Snapseed and here is what I came up with.  Not bad, huh?
