Road Trip

On road trips my husband does all the driving- and I read, play Words with Friends, and take photos out the window with my phone.  Now that I have more apps than ever before, I have a lot of fun editing the photos.  The last two were taken through the car window at 60+ miles per hour; I found that adding textures (in Snapseed or Mextures) helped disguise any reflections in the glass.

I’m linking up today with “app happy” Wednesday on Barb’s Keeping with the Times.

Keeping With The Times

Photo 1: The Starbucks we finally found after searching for 45 minutes (painted in Waterlogue)

Photo 2: Power Lines in the Sun (edited in Mextures and blended back with the original in Image Blender)

Photo 3: The Road Ahead (textured – can’t remember which app- sorry- then painted in Waterlogue and blended with original)

  1. Oh how I miss those days when I was a passenger, love your plays. Was going to say have fun but I can see you are.

  2. Wow, I love them all but that shot of the road ahead is really wonderful! Could it have been DistressedFX that you used? Whatever it was, really great job editing on all of these!

  3. Love your edits, Melinda! I’m going to try the blending technique of adding the original back over the edit – I have Image Blender so I’ll give it a whirl!

    The watercolor rendering of the highway makes it look so much better than in real life!
