Garden Visitors

Posted by mrssmythe on August 6, 2017 in CPT's Lens, Critters, Garden, Photography |

I’d like to revisit a topic I introduced in the last post – namely, the Prisma App. If you enjoy tinkering with photos on your phone, this is definitely something to look into. It can take any so-so photo and give it a wonderful, artistic look – so artistic, in fact, that I’m tempted to print […]
