5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


I am taking Vivienne McMaster's Double Exposure Love class this week. I found I am in creative heaven at the moment. Something fun and different to learn. Mainly we are using the Diana Photo App which is available for iPhone and Android. This photo is actually triple exposed.

The base layer is this photo, taken at Lake Leelanau:


Then this texture of a wooden door at the Northern Michigan Asylum in Traverse City is exposed over top of it:


I then added one of the filters  in the Diana App and saved it:


Which is quite pretty just by itself, but then I brought that back into Diana as the base layer and  added this photo of my daughter, Mallory sitting on the rocks at Presque Isle Park in Marquette, over top of the base layer:


I added another filter and saved it, which gave me the finished creation of the first image.

Find No. 2


I am still working on my #the100daysproject #100daysofleadinglines on Instagram. This is my favorite so far this week.

Find No. 3


I found a new collar waiting for Scout on the front step the other day, sent with love from Mallory.

Find No. 4


I have found texting to be so handy for many things including sending your daughter a recipe for a snack bread that she wants to make while she is away at school. The beauty of technology, it does have its pluses. 

Find No. 5


I found an unused railroad track next to the cemetery, which will be ideal for doing some self-portraiture work, definitely won't be any gawkers there.

  2. Oh you could have all kinds of fun - an it looks like you are. My friend bought that Canon 5D MIII and it takes multi exposure in camera. He got some really cool shots at a performance we went to.

  5. Happy Friday to you! I've played a bit with the Diana app but I don't find any adjustments to the layers and so far not too many of my pics blend well together! Great finds you have here. :)

  7. Thank you for sharing your process for the Diana app. I have the app on my phone but have not used it in a long time. Your finished image is awesome. I also love the fence and those railroad tracks have such character, I look forward to seeing what you create there. :)

  16. I liked reading about your process for the double/triple exposure. That track photo has so many wonderful elements going for it - it seems like the start of a mystery story.

  20. The wooden textured door is wonderful and lordy, I could not imagine getting along without text - HOW did I do it for so many years and HOW did my parents get by without SKYPE and TEXT and iPHONES and technology?
