Colour fantasy from Pirlangimpi

The exploration of using the iPhone camera and apps to modify the originals continues. Though the shots were taken at Pilangimpi the post is done in Darwin after we have packed in preparation to return to the community for stage 2 this week.

I then used two FX Colour 'filters' to treat the shots - I was testing out various Colour Fantasy approaches - Solarize and Tritone - one gets some pretty amazing images. Some have possibilities as backgrounds to other design works.

Over the weekend we have had to enter survey data and post documents off etc - but we have managed to do some fun things in Darwin (see Fiona's perspective on this) as well including: checking out Framed and NT Galleries; going to two local markets (Parap and Rapid Creek; eating pizza and drinking shiraz; and picking up rusty bottle caps - but more about that later.
