Journey of a body on this earth

Saturday Lite


I thought today I’d share with you some of my Instagram photos.  When I’m out and about not with my camera, I most always have my iPhone with me.  And when I’m waiting for a doctor’s appointment or at the carwash or just sitting on the back deck, I’ll edit the photos in one of my many IOS apps.

I find that not one app alone doesn’t usually do it for me.  Sometimes it works but usually I use multiple apps to get the job done.  My recent favorites are Leonardo and TangledFX.  I’ve included some photos here in a gallery here.  You can find more Instagram photos by clicking here or on the link in the sidebar.

  1. I should probably utilize my iphone and experiment with some apps. Your photos are really gorgeous!

    • It really is a fun thing to do! Sometimes I like doing it more than the regular photos! What’s nice is that once you buy an app for the iPhone, you can download it for the iPad too. Makes editing easier sometimes on the iPad. 🙂

  2. so beautiful!
    reminds me of looking
    through the colorful sunglasses
    of my youth 🙂

  3. Love what you’ve done with the red-orange rose! I tried to find both Leonardo and TangledFX on the Amazon App store and had no luck. Suggestions?

  4. I like what you have done in each of these photos Laura. I recently started an Instagram, but I will admit that I haven’t used it much. I do however have an iPad that I use Lightroom mobil on. I will have to look into some of the other photo editors.

  5. NICE! you sure do take some great photos!

  6. Flowers are especially striking

  7. These are great shots and I love iPhone photos and am amazed at the camera on iPhone 6.

  8. No wonder you’re killer diller with a DSLR! 🙂

  9. i should look into editing iPhone shots., especially as my iPhone 6+ takes a lot better shots than my old iphone.i only ever spend time editing my raw dslr shots. i will treat your post as a prod 🙂

    • It doesn’t take me too long to do these. The barn took the longest because I replaced the sky. And yes! Leonardo provides masking options. Amazing. I’ll look forward to seeing what you get. I have an iPhone 5 and it’s pretty good but I”m sure the new iPhone is even better.

  10. Reblogged this on Amazing Fine Art and commented:
    Excellent work!

  11. I am so envious Laura they are absolutely beautiful and just what I needed right now so full of life and color! Thanks! 🙂

  12. Wonderful Instagrams, just to adore and stay with. I have not tried out Leonardo or TangledFX. May have to check them out. 🙂

  13. Wow Laura .. I have to give these apps a go! Great photos 🙂

  14. Some beauties here, Laura. I will have to try some of these apps for my Instagram. Love the effects.

  15. I’m using my camera and my iPhone more often. Most of the time I don’t even download the photos in the computer.

  16. I would like to use your last photo as the basis of a new painting I do for a charity called New Dawn Project. Would you be ok with that? I will give you credit for the original photo in my artist notes.

    • Hi Dave….why certainly. I’d be honored! I would love it see it when you’re finished, just to see what I inspired. That’s exciting, thank you so much! 🙂

  17. Beautiful edits! Gorgeous colors for those flowers!

  18. Beautiful images, Laura. I really like the angles and color saturation.

  19. I just got Instagram recently so I’m still figuring it out but I like it an awful lot! Just followed you 🙂

  20. Reblogged this on My Blog.

  21. Stunning flower images, Laura! Makes me want to get and try some of the IOS apps.

  22. Amazing photos you got there just by using your phone. You’re more tech savvy than me. When I’m out, I tend to take photos on my point-and-shoot (mainly because I paid quite a bit for it and want to get the most out of it 😦 ) But I’ve played around with a few apps and how I wish every single effect can be rolled into one app!

    I like the last photo best. Mix of dark and bright orange clouds converging together, as if they are in a fight 🙂

    • Oh I think the same thing Mabel…about wishing everything was in one app! I think that every time I use them lol. You picked out my favorite. I replaced the sky on that one…on my phone! That Leonardo app is really handy for that. Thank you for your comments Mabel. I always look forward to what you have to say. 🙂

  23. The cabin is especially nice.

  24. Lovely shots Laura…..I don’t do enough with my iPHONE 😊

  25. wow- great apps and great effects. Gorgeous Laura!
