Phoneograpy: Nature – Tree Smile

I captured this shot of a live oak a few weeks ago and it seems to me it’s got a smile in its branches, what do you think?

Perhaps her smile will encourage all my friends who still have snow and cold that spring truly is right around the corner.

I discovered something new (for me) on Pixlr Express and changed the image above into a drawing. Although she is colorless, the live oak still has a smile.

As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. This post is in response to Lens and Pens Phoneography Challenge with the prompt of nature.


PS  I did this whole post, including the editing of the images, writing the post, inserting the images and the links, and then publishing, on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. I now have a keyboard and a way to use a mouse, and I’m achieving my self-challenge to use the tablet to its potential!

    I don’t know what kind of tablet you have but I got mine online for only $15 w/free shipping… it’s supposed to work for both ipad and android.

    Great shot, Meghan. I just love these old trees. They have so much character. I love what you did with Pixlr. I just discovered it, too, and started to use it. That Pixlr-o-Matic has a bunch of fun stuff! 🙂

    That’s grand that you worked through the use of the tablet. Good job. In this instance I am drawn to the color image. It does more justice to the grandeur of the tree, because of the contrast of the branches against the deep blue sky. Lovely. Happy Phoneography Challenge.
