Eleven Months Later!

I wonder if I should just call it quits on this blog, or start posting again? It seems like too much work to keep this blog going  . . . when there aren't many readers. This was a place to post my photos and some of my other work, but for the last year Instagram has taken priority. Much easier to post one photo immediately on IG than to create a post here. But lately, IG has started to feel  . . . can't find the word, but not satisfying comes to mind. Perhaps my mindset has changed again? I'm a moderator on two Hubs/Galleries and started my own hub, #gobeyondthe_capture where I feature photographers work. About a gazillion years I used to curate photo exhibits so I love presenting exciting edited photos to the over 500 followers of the hub!
My two IG accounts are #gailpe and #dezert365

I've taken numerous photo classes in the last year and find that editing on the iPad is like a meditation. I've never been good at meditating but when I edit photos the focus is off of the myriad of issues that would love to take over my life.

Red Oleander photographed against a white background. Then a background was created with iPad apps, mostly Stackables and Mextures. 

A different capture of the red Oleander. Taken with the Hipstamatic app. Jane lens, Ina's 1982 film and Triple Crown flash and the edited in Mextures. 

A macro of a tiny bloom on a Society Garlic plant. Edited in Mextures
and Stackables. 

Very angry Oriole! Her mate was hogging the Hummingbird feeder. For the last few years a pair of orioles visits nearly every day from around May to Oct. They enjoy the feeder as much as the Hummers do, but there is only room for one Oriole at at time.

For those who  have followed my blog since the beginning, this month marks the 5 year anniversary of the Breast Cancer episode! A very emotional month for me as it turns out. 
Please leave a comment if you think I should start to post here again. Hugs!
