Playing with pop on two bird photographs using Grungetastic. There are hundreds of variations possible. These lend themselves to old-fashioned screen printing.
Great Blue Heron – Stanley Park, Vancouver – March 2012 (Worn Pop effect)
Seagull – Cape Leveque, Western Australia (Pop Grunge effect)
Just because a photograph hasn’t captured what you’d hoped, it doesn’t necessarily mean you should ditch it. This was a photo of a whistling kite feeding her babies at dusk on Lake Argyle in Western Australia. It has been transformed into a quite respectable image using Grungetastic’s Distressed element.
It will come as no surprise to some that I took thousands of photographs on the trip to the Kimberley last year. I’m scanning those pics to find those that didn’t feature in the blog (mostly) and give them a treatment with Grungetastic. Here are seven of them, up to and including Halligan Bay at Lake Eyre.

On the hunt for some more photo effect applications, I stumbled upon Grungetastic.
It’s amazing what visual joy can be created via the wonder of technology from your very own photographs. In the examples below, the photos were all taken with an iPhone 5.
Now to set my mind on a way to reproduce favourite visuals into tangible objects.
