february photo-a-day challenge: days 1-3

Hi friend!

I decided that I’d post a round-up of my photo-a-day challenge on Fridays. The reason? Just felt like it – nothing special. Lol

day 1: your view – my babies are playing, obviously hehe

day 2: words – The quote says, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart” written by Helen Keller. I ripped it out of  the February Woman’s Day magazine.

day 3: hands – I wanted to take a photo of my babies’ hands because they won’t be small for long. They grow up so fast.

I am planning on getting the diaper deal at Target tomorrow, Saturday, and hoping to walk at the flea market if the temperature permits. My son is turning 1 year old in 2 weeks and we are planning to have a party for him. So, I’d like to also take a pre-birthday photo this weekend but there are so many things that need to be done that it might get pushed for next weekend.

What are your plans this weekend? Well, whatever it is I hope that you have a great one!


iphone apps i’m currently loving

 i love to take pictures of my kids but my nikon d200 is massive and isn’t always convenient. however, my iphone is quite handy. this is why i am currently loving instagram! it’s like twitter but with pictures. there are about 10+ filters which are readily available to use on your snapshots. twitter, flickr and facebook accounts can be connected to an instagram account, as well. so sharing photos is very convenient.  i love photoshop and there is a photoshop  express app available which allows quick picture edits such as cropping, and brightness change, etc. it also allows a quick facebook and twitpic sharing!

here are a couple of my instagram pictures:


i love to play with the filters. definitely a fun way to take pics and share them!  i love the wordpress app, as well, which makes it very easy for me to quickly write a blog post while eating or something, lol. i must admit that i hated this app before because is was very buggy but now it’s been updated!
