Experimenting with the Galaxy Tab and Instagram

Our new Galaxy tablet is the latest tech toy in the house. The Computer Man tells me that in fact, I shouldn't be calling it a toy, but a work tool (the purpose for which he got it).

The thing is, calling it a toy makes me much more inclined to use it-and to feel playful about it.

And yes, just in case you're thinking, "What, she only just has a tablet? And Instagram, isn't everyone *leaving* there at the moment?" you have a good point. One of the many pleasures of being with The Computer Man is the amount of tech he brings home. One of its (very slight) downsides is  that because he *fixes* tech so well, we almost never have the latest of anything. But I'm not complaining.

Anyway, I thought I'd post my first two experiments from Instagram.

The first involved playing around with the Pixlr grunge filters first...Don't normally do anything in black-and white, but the striking shapes of these winter trees tempted me into it.

 Back to more colour for this cute cherub hiding on a building. I put him through the SketchGuru Android app, "Colour Pencil 2," settings (with some extra adjustments) and then a bronze vignette in Instagram.

Bye for now.
