My photography skills are fairly limited, but I do enjoy selecting the photos I take for this blog and trying to improve them. Recently I came across Instagram's "Vintique" app on my iPad, and I thought you might enjoy seeing how I played around with it a bit. I started with a simple, straightforward photo of one of my favorite old teacups, this unsigned cup and saucer with a moody gray-blue color setting off its roses and gilded bows and ribbons.
Here is the photo edited with the filter called "old times."
This one is "watercolors."
This one is my favorite, "yesterday."
This one is "someday."
This one is "dim past."
And last but not least, this one is "canvas." Did you prefer one of these filters? If so, I'd love to know which one!
