Advert for a funky site

Every so often I like to play with photos, experiment with the colors and saturation.. even filters, though never to the point where it's obvious to the average viewer. Recently I found out about a website that plays with photos and turns them extra unique, befunky.com.

I decided to experiment with some photos that I had taken (aside from the one of myself and the one in blue of my older sis, that my bud Lauren took) I uploaded the images and fooled around to create what you see here.

Lake-ing it up!

I went to Lake Martin with Steven over the weekend and we had a great time playing in the water, eating amazing food, tubing from the boat, and just enjoying this beautiful Alabama weather! Several members of his family were there as well, and above are a couple of my photos from the day..

Polaroid vs. Poladroid

Several months ago I was introduced to a program on Macs that could turn any photo into a "Polaroid" style. I was reluctant because obviously I opt for the original way of doing things and don't usually have an attraction towards change. But today I decided to play around with it and see what the program could do. I have mixed feelings at this point, though I do see the appeal. Some of you may have heard of it by now, the program is called Poladroid and is now compatible with PCs in addition to the Mac.

There are options in the processing, it can even make the photos look aged with scratches and fingerprints. Play around with it and let me know what you think. Here's the link to investigate further.

Above are two photos. One is a photo that I "converted" with the Poladroid program. Another is a normal Polaroid from my Polaroid camera. Can you tell the difference?
