It's officially Spring and this weekend wallpaper celebrates it! I don't need an excuse to take pictures of flowers or make them wallpapers (see previous three wallpapers) but I figured this week was the expected one. I actually took these pictures a couple of weeks ago. The background had captured some of the incoming sunset colors. I decided to make it a bit more playful by emphasizing them.

I added layers of pinks and purples (in Photoshop) to soften and lighten the background, imported into Lightroom and edited the rose into a coral shade that blended better with the improved background. Then I added some grain as the final touch. 

I hope you all enjoy!

This would be part two of last week's wallpaper. Same Apricot tree, photograph from the same day but a different edit and angle. I'm glad I took these because it seems to have completely skipped the bloom state that usually lasts a while and went straight into awkward teenager stage. Oh well.

Like last week's, this was imported into Adobe Lightroom and transferred to Mextures. 

I hope you all enjoy!

The apricot trees in my dad's backyard have begun to blossom, so that's where you'll find me these next two weeks (the time span for the tree to be full of them). I've made it no secret I love me some flowers and these beauties fit in the category perfectly. And because it's that time of year, I'm not the only Bee obsessed with them. I managed to capture a couple doing their thing and this is where this weeks wallpaper comes from. 

I edited a couple dozen times. It was one of those where I wasn't fully happy with any of them. Stronger, softer, simple ... perfectionism is an unrealistic bee. I eventually, settled on this white and (sky) blue gradient. All edits done in Lightroom and gradients added in Mextures. 

Hope you all enjoy!

This week's wallpaper is of a dandelion that had seen better days prior to the latest showers. Until I went through the pictures on my computer and I noticed that a part of it resembled a heart. Basically, weeds are pretty too! 

It went through a three step editing process between Lightroom, Photoshop and Mextures. The original background was more red than I cared for it to be. Once I dared it, I added layers in Mextures to give it the grittier appearance.

I hope you all enjoy.

Due to all the showers we've (California) experienced, there's pretty sights of nature blooming every which way. Spring is going to be so so beautiful. Like I mentioned before, my father has the greenest thumb and his backyard brags for him. The side of their house is graced by various colors of hibiscus. This was one of the blooms. Small, yet perfect. I have featured these beauties, and although I can't get enough, I decided to step outside the box with my edit. I went into Lightroom and adjusted the shadows and colors. The real magic happened in my right hand app; Mextures. I tried a couple of layers and whilst adjusting the blend, a 'cool' edit presented itself. I hope you all enjoy as much as I.

This week I bring you two wallpapers. Two different edits, to be exact, of the same wallpaper. I was under strict instructions to keep away from the iDevices for a couple of days, hence no wallpaper last week. 

I took this picture months ago. I don't recall much about it except that it wasn't mine. I love pineapple art, items, but cannot eat the actual thing. There's also something beautiful about it's exterior appearance. Pictures of (apparently) other people's pineapples is the perfect balance. 

As per usual, I imported in Lightroom and added different color layers in Mextures.

Last week concluded the rainiest week we've (Californians) have had in a while. A couple of days mother nature was just showing off by flooding some of our yards. One of those mornings was sunny enough to make the dew on the grass blades glow my way. I grabbed my camera and this came of it. 

I imported in Lightroom where I made certain areas darker. Transferred to Mextures app and back into Lightroom to sharpen it. 

Hope you all enjoy.

The last week, mother nature has blessed California with that which it needed most: rain and more rain! All the images that I have captured are mainly on phone because this is not the time to test my cameras resilience against the elements. I did manage take a couple of pictures of the mini roses on my front yard. 

Edited in Adobe Lightroom and Mextures (via) iPad. 

Enjoy

This week's wallpaper is a throwback to last Fall. A dime of dozens in terms of beach sunsets I've managed to capture but this sandpiper bird makes it a little more special. It reminded me of the Pixar short Piper that was played before Finding Dory. If you haven't watched, it will be the most adorable six minutes of your day. 

The sunset provided beautiful colors that didn't need much in terms of editing. I tweaked small things in Lightroom and (of course) imported into Mextures. 

Enjoy.

This week's wallpaper started as a joke. My friend and I were making fun of something and somewhere down the laugh train we got into book discussions and the latest one I had suggested to her dealt with the main character's obsession with astronomy.

Of course, at first I had to make sure that it was usable as a homescreen and lockscreen wallpaper. I've spoken of my need for wallpapers not to distract/obstruct time or notifications. After I got the gradient just right, I worked on the patter in Adobe Illustrator. After adjusting it to my liking, I exported a copy and imported into Mextures on my iPad. Added some layers to darken certain parts and had myself a version I was content with. 

I hope you all enjoy as much as I.

AirPods: An iPhone Addict's Review

The AirPods from Apple are a decent pair of wireless headphones for the cost.  While the hardware has pros (audio quality, ease of set up, wireless) and cons (lack of controls, potential for poor fit), there are other bluetooth headphones at various price points that may suit your needs better.  I love my Jaybirds and I also backed a pair on kickstarted that will also act as a personal trainer, https://www.getvi.com (pre-order). I will probably keep the AirPods and use them more around the office and home.  Its difficult to say yes or no to purchasing the AirPods. I suggest going to the Apple Store and trying them out before you toss $160.00 at Apple. The biggest thing to remember is these headphones are not for everyone and your usage will vary. There is a lot of technology packed into these little pods and that has me excited for generation 2.

Our first wallpaper of the new year! It's been cold, overcast and a bit rainy in the Sunshine State. My camera and I have taken advantage of it and it's now your gain. I saw this single leaf refusing to fall and noticed it resembled a heart. A great reminder, always! 

I imported it into Lightroom where I applied a preset. It was a little too cold, a couple of layers in Mextures gave it the perfect amount of warmth and balance. 

Hope you all enjoy.

This week's wallpaper is courtesy of a post Christmas (mind) blank. There was so much commotion going on, that an easy last week (of the year) was necessary. 

A pattern I made a while back was used for this wallpaper. I assumed since I was halfway there, putting it together would be a cinch. I forgot how obnoxiously picky I tend to be. I lost count after 30 versions. I made the pattern bigger, smaller, I blurred it, I added a couple of more and nothing. I was hoping something would magically come together and wow me. HA! 

After I got it to the size where every app name would still be legible and not lost in each square, I imported into Lightroom where I sharpened the image and added some layers. 

Hope you enjoy the final product!

In a folder, somewhere in my external hard drive, I have dozens of 'potential-wallpapers' photos. I had planned to dig in there for this weeks, but last night I made a trip to Target and this shaped glitter caught my attention. This idea popped in my head and it was successfully executed this morning! I had a couple of reindeer ones, but they just looked weird. Snowflakes were the better choice; represents Winter and Christmas all in one. 

I imported it into Lightroom and applied a preset and edited brightness/contrast/tint until I was satisfied. 

I hope you all enjoy!

A couple of times a month, if the weather permits, I try to take my dogs on a hike. There's a man made trail and across is one where it's just up to you and your luck. We've tried both but usually stick to the tiny dog friendly one. Whether a murky day or sunny, the view is always worth it. I always pocket my phone because I need to be fully alert for anything not human/dog friendly. And One of my dogs has really short legs (aka spoiled rotten) and always needs help uphill or to be carried for some portion (living the dream). 

Last weekend, it became a multiple people adventure. Knowing this, I packed my camera. There were a lot of plants but this cactus patch drew me in. I didn't take many pictures but knew I had a couple of good ones. The sunlight was just perfect on it. 

Very simple editing follow. Imported to Lightroom for basic tweaks. Then... you guessed it: Mextures. 

Hope you all enjoy!

This week we're getting a little tropical. It rained here for a day and a quarter so... I took a picture to make it last longer. These beauties are from my dads garden. I visited for Brunch sometime that day and a quarter and couldn't stop staring at the hibiscus wall. Yes, there's a wall with red, yellow, and these orange ones. The man doesn't play around! I had my DSLR with me (totally planned) and snapped away.

I edited it minor stuff in Lightroom, transferred to iPad and imported to Mextures. I applied one of the guest formulas and I was content. Very simple but effective.

We've reached Thanksgiving week here in the States. This means nothing to many, an open day for gratitude and/or waiting for Black Friday sales to others. Whatever you choose to do, there's always something to be thankful for. We're able to come together with our loved ones with more food than can be consumed in one evening... for far too many both things are a dream. Even if it's just to bellyache, we have air in our lungs. For that and the million mundane things that we take for granted... be thankful. ♥︎

 

As a Thanksgiving treat, we're sharing two wallpapers this week. Our main one and a blank one (sans word) for your homescreen.

This weeks wallpaper is a teeny tiny corner of the happiest place on earth. Disneyland, yes. It was taken two years ago right around Spring, when everything was at it's greenest. It was a large file, so it was cropped to remove fellow visitors and to give it a middle-of-nowhere look.

I imported to Lightroom and with a few tweaks and presets made the greens darker. I then transferred to my trusty Mextures and I applied a grain overlay. Very simple and a common process of mine, but quite effective. 

I hope you all enyoy!

This week's wallpaper is inspired by hilarious old ladies; The Golden Girls. It's one of my favorite shows and I like the idea of Blanche's bedroom (as wallpaper, not my actual bedroom). It's set in Miami and because of or in spite of, the room has a tropical theme. For the wallpaper, I worked with similar colors and different leaves. I've beat this horse enough but the first version was too cluttered for notifications/time. It was like a never-ending maze. One which you come out nauseated! I then toned down the color of the leaves and added a deep purple background. creature of habit alert. Mixed some gradients to give it some dimension and voilà.

I hope you all enjoy.
