A really lazy day today — the joys of having time off. As I said to June, we can either do stuff or not do stuff — it’s totally our choice.
I picked up an app a week or so ago for free and haven’t used it yet, so I thought I’d make it my goal to create today’s picture using that app. It’s called KaleidaCam, and as the name suggests, it creates a kaleidoscope-type photo. I figured the colorful Christmas trees in the house might make good subjects and they sure did. Even slightest movements of the camera give completely different effects, which is both a blessing and curse. It’s fun to see the different results but you have to keep the phone really still to capture the one that you really like. The regular Christmas produced some good effects, but then I headed up to the small tree decorated with M&Ms and feather boas just off the kitchen. I was able to product some neat effects, but the shot you see below is one of my favorites. I don’t suspect that this is an app that will get extensive use, but it is definitely a good one to have in the collection.
