On Monday, while waiting for my Mom to be finished at the dentist, I walked along the Seal Beach Pier and took the above left photo of the low tide line. Yesterday I ran the photo through the Tiny Planets app on my phone to good effect, middle photo. And then this morning, in a fit of experimentation, I ran the first tiny planet through the Tiny Planets app again to get a second almost trigometric/cosine effect, photo on the right. Thus, twice through the Tiny Planets makes for good fun.

The Tiny Planet photo that I made from the above photo is here on Instagram.
Fri 04.04.14 – Wherein they promptly dragged me home, evening walk cut very short.
Wed 03.26.14 – A few months ago I downloaded the DxOMark Filmpack Lightroom Plugin, after seeing on a web site somewhere that the plugin would allow one to take one’s digital camera files and develop / digitally process them as various films – be it black and white film or color film.
Since I have fallen in love with Fujifilm Velvia 100 & 50 color slide film and Ilford Super XP2 400 black and white film this summer, and I really don’t like to spend time on post-processing, experimenting with the film pack has been fun. One just opens the images and presses the film you want to use, then save. Fast and fun.
Today, I took a photo of the Seal Beach pier before sunset as large, fluffy clouds were floating by. The top image is the original from my Nokia Lumia 1020 and the rest are various film pack processings. The DxOMark filmpack version of FujiFilm Velvia 50 is a bit over the top for my tastes, but I do like the black and white processings. Which do you like best?
Sat 03.01.14 – During the great Puddlewatch 2014, aka where one must post lots of PuddleGrams, I went out in a break between the weird water stuff falling from the sky to take photos of waves roaring up the beach south of the Seal Beach Pier.
While the surf was not as big as Surfline predicted, it was still fun to watch the wave action and small boys running from the waves.
