Used an iPhone photo taken through a window with a screen, boosted the color, then used Lomo-ish from Picasa with a bit of a vignette. I think it looks a bit like a painting. Just gotta have some fun.

You see plenty birds perching on the tops of houses, but you don’t often see a duck there.  I decided to have a little editing fun with this photo of a duck atop the house across the street.  If I were channeling my inner Andrew Wyeth, it might have looked like this.

It’s time to pair six words for Saturday with a photo.  A few weeks ago I had only my iPhone when I spotted the first egret of the season.  It was very shy and even though I was at quite a distance, as soon as I stopped, it took off.  Needless to say, the resulting photo was less than stellar.  But I played around with some editing and came up with something I thought was fun and looked like the same egret during four various season.  I could have called it “Making the best of a bad shot”, but that’s seven words and Type-A people like me always try to follow the rules.   🙂

Literal: expressed by letters.  In this case, the sentiment is also expressed, I am compelled by my inner grammarian to add, incorrectly.  It should read “Fake happiness is the WORST kind of sadness” (unless there are only two kinds).  I’m also quite sure this isn’t a quote from the fiddling Nero, but I think the sentiment worthy of sharing and it was a fun find as we wandered the streets of Philadelphia last year.

Debbie at Travel with Intent hosts One Word Sunday (as well as Six-word Saturday–what is it with the number thing?), but she set us a hard one this week.  Looking forward to seeing other interpretations.

Those are my six words for Six-Word Saturday.  Here’s the result of playing. Can’t play all day, though, as I have to work. 😊   I hope you enjoy your Saturday!
