Zeus at Seabrook Beach this morning.
Instagram photo on iPhone, with “Amaro” effect, posted to Facebook then scraped off to my desktop and inserted into this blog post.
I tried putting a drop shadow on it in picnik, but the saved picture had a slightly lower resolution that made a difference to my eye.
John at Seabrook Beach.
It was 58 degrees this morning, with warming rays of sun now and then, and a sea-green sea. Now it’s raining lightly and our stretch of Nicevember weather (after Snowtober) is over.
I’ve been learning to use Photosynth in iPhone for panoramic shots (so far, I stink at it), and I’ve been posting regular, non-pano pics to Flickr and geotagging and posting some in Panoramio for Google maps. Lately I’m into the idea of augmented reality maps and crowdsourced place pics.
Watch this: Blaise Aguera y Arcas demos Photosynth.
