On Saturday I went to an old fashioned fireman's pump muster
this was the bus that transported one of the teams
I used waterlogue
and a few other apps that had filters
Also, I put this into one of the apps that has a depth of field
filter. It looks as if the bus is a toy but it is a full size bus.
I just play around with many of them until I find an image I like.
I layer them as well sometimes saving the image and then
opening the new image up in a different app to edit it some more.
these were the hands that reached out for me at the very moment of your birth
i've held them in my own hands as you crossed the street
or needed a bit of reassurance
i've felt their soft and tiny fingers brush against me as i held you
in the night
i've seen them wipe away tears you cried when sadness came
and circle around a steering wheel when you learned to drive
now that you are 26
i don't see those hands as often
as i'd like to
yesterday i sat on the beach and watched as they played with
a pile of sand
and though you didn't notice
i was at once transported
marveling and humbled
at how much love
one is capable of holding in a pair of hands
now I know
that my words hum with magic
While they swarm above the forest floor
And jump from low hanging branches
dancing in the twilight of what
you only dream of
I am a creature that thrives in the approaching storm
I used a few different apps for this.
unfortunately I can't remember exactly which ones.
next week I will be more careful to remember
in the meantime here is what I think I used
icolorama -i haven't really been able to figure this app out yet though
