32/14: my first mobile post

A new experience for me is to attempt a post from my mobile phone. My first attempt half an hour ago failed, as I was trying to post from my iPhone 3GS.
I had already typed the post, then wanted to (cleverly and easily I thought) upload a photo from my camera roll. There the problem started. Apparently the connection was lost and a little suggestion appeared to exit WordPress and reconnect. Now usually, on my laptop, a draft is automatically saved. Not so here.
Now I’m trying my new IPhone 4S but have just realised the photos on my camera roll are still on the other phone. Oh the frustrations of modern technology!
Solution? Leave that photo for another day and go now and take a fresh photo especially for you! Here goes:

This is our beautiful front door, lead lighted with money from our Deal or No Deal TV appearance back in 2009.
I may have to edit this post later to add categories and tags, but for now this should suffice. Now I shall hold my breath as I hit “publish” and hopefully I will have taken another forward step on my technological journey!

23/14: burn for you

burn for you

Not being the most technologically advanced individual, it always pleases me when I have made some small advancement in computer skills.

Don’t judge me too harshly, as I am relatively new to really creative photo-shopping or creating art on the computer. I’ve always been  more a hands-on type, preferring to use traditional media such as pens, pencils and paint. However, I had a bash and came up with this, which I have entitled “Burn for You”. I did it a few months ago, after having my my new laptop for just over six months, and I think I used “Paint”, or was it Adobe Photoshop? Whichever, it was fun manipulating the original photo, which I think was a “selfie”.

Looking at it objectively, it looks a lot like finger-painting, but the best way to learn these skills is often by trial and error. And besides, it was fun!
