Photo Friday: Oshawa Afternoon

I've been so distraught over the loss of my Nikon D-SLR that I forgot that I do actually have a camera that's better than the one in my iPhone. It's a 10 mega-pixel point-and-shoot.

Our Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS.

Yesterday, while the family and I took a break from dance competitions in Ajax, Ontario, we hopped over to Oshawa (hopped is adroit; it took less than 10 minutes to drive). While Lori, the workaholic, took time to get some work done from the Oshawa library, the kids and I had a daddy-daughter afternoon in the Oshawa Centre, a massive shopping mall. Essentially, I let the girls lead me around for a shopping spree. I was a walking wallet for them.

Afterwards, when we rejoined Lori in the library, the girls wanted to rest and Lori said she needed about an hour to finish up. So I left the girls to their devices and wandered the neighbourhood, the Canon in my pocket.

Because we're on the road and travelling as light as possible (or at least, I am), I left my laptops at home, deciding to travel only with my iPad, my wireless keyboard, and an SD card adapter.

For post production, I used Snapseed. Although I've had the app for a couple of months, this is the first time I've really played with it. Especially on the iPad (I also have it on my iPhone but the screen size is far to small to truly see your results). Snapseed is very easy to use: just choose an editing tool and swipe your finger up and down to choose a feature, and then side to side to adjust the intensity of that feature.

What do you think?

Happy Friday!

  1. What do I think? I think I am OLD. I was a teenaged mall rat at the Oshawa Centre before they put a roof on it and made it a mall.

    Tempis fuckit.
