Raindrops on a leaf

We’ve had quite a bit of rain lately and one of the upsides is that I see this sort of thing when I arrive at work after evening showers. This isn’t the first time I’ve taken photos of raindrops on leaves at my office but it is still something I enjoying taking photos of.

I shot this main image with my iPhone 5 using the TrueHDR app. It is interesting to contrast this with the stock iPhone 5 camera app version:

One morning at the office

I’ve been walking to work a lot lately. I live relatively close and I’ve come to enjoy being on foot, for the most part. You notice a lot more about your environment when you walk it and when I walk with my camera (which is often lately), it’s not difficult to find new subject matter.

I took a few photos one morning at the office as I walked into the property the other day. I really liked how the sun came through an avocado tree and the 50mm lens I had on my Nikon didn’t give me the perspective I wanted so I switched to my iPhone instead.

Dragonfly experiment

20131015-065903.jpg

My dragonfly experiment. I used 4 photo apps on my phone to apply a couple presets/filters to a photo to see what the outcome would be.

I used Camera+, VSCO, Snapseed and Flickr apps.

Kirstenbosch Gardens and the mountain

A couple photos of the mountain from Kirstenbosch this afternoon. The rest are on my camera. Sorry about the shaky hands and the one photo.
