Creating art with Waterlogue: beware, it’s addictive

I’ve been having such fun with the Waterlogue app: I’m no professional photographer, relying on my trusty iphone 4 to capture my memories, but even the most basic images can look beautiful when given the Waterlogue treatment. Here’s the Victorian pier at Eastbourne in East Sussex, last weekend:

… the beautiful Canadian Lake of the Woods in Northwestern Ontario, which we didn’t want to leave last summer….

And the boys making a bonfire this Saturday night:

Ordinary objects (and cats with ambitions to become models) turn into decorative still lives….

The finished files are large enough to be reproduced as hard images for display and framing, making them a clever and unique way to create personal artwork.

Find Waterlogue in the App store, and do share your images with me via Pinterest, I’d love to see them. Jx

It’s so beautiful here right now – the sun is shining, the garden is buzzing and the children are off for several weeks….

I’m going to take a break from writing find the details for a couple of weeks, to make the most of the summer; in the meantime if you’d like to discover this beautiful part of the world, then the best place to stay must be Hole Cottage:

This Hansel & Gretel cottage is literally in a hole in the woods, and you can rent it through the Landmark Trust

Meanwhile, back at home, the only other female member of the household is due to have kittens any day now….

Poor thing! I’ve been heavily pregnant in the heat – I feel for her…. 

Do keep in touch via Instagram – and let me know you come from find the details.

I’ll be back at the beginning of August; till then, enjoy the summer! Jx
