With Spring official here, Portland has begun to bloom. And every year when this happens, there is one magical week that the cherry tree in front of our home gets amazingly, beautiful blossoms.
The tree turns all pink and dreamy… this no where near captures it.
In fact I’ve often thought if there was a way to bottle the beauty of this seasonal transformation, it would bring me such joy. But the photos I take never do it justice. And within a few precious days, the crimson leaves appear and the cotton candy-esque quality of it is gone until the following Spring.
That is until this week.
Kimm recommends using Waterlogue which I LOVE! However because I’m continually trying to up my photography game with my DSLR, I sometimes forget to play with some of the cool apps I have. Waterlogue is the perfect one for turning my cherry tree into a Monet worthy piece of Spring art.
The app is so easy to use! Download it for free to your smart phone, upload a photo and apply any one of the various watercolor filters.
Once you have your art created, it’s ready to print, frame and display.
It’s been so fun to savor this Spring event longer than the blooms last. Our tree is already full of rich red leaves… which is pretty, but in a different way.
Now no matter what the tree or weather does outside, I’m enjoying a bright and cheery Spring season inside.
