From a tiny (Snap)seed...

Last June, Kendra and I went with my boss and his wife to Acadia, which I wrote about at the time (1, 2, 3). What I did not do at the time was post any photos. My aging computer gets a little sluggish running iPhoto and Photoshop Elements, which leads to an intimidating photo backlog as I constantly postpone the editing process.

Then my dad got me an iPad, and I downloaded two apps: Snapseed and Flickr Studio ($5 each, though Snapseed was free at the time). Snapseed is a tight little editing program, with sensitive, intuitive touch-adjustment of things like contrast and white balance, plus an assortment of Instagrammy effects filters; Flickr Studio is clunkier, but offers easy tagging and uploading to Flickr. This means I can tag and edit photos on the bus, while watching TV, sitting in Diesel...which means I tag and edit more photos. It's my version of knitting.

Long story short, here's a sampling of last year's Acadia pix. There's another 300 or so in the Flickr set.

This twisted tree from our Mount Kebo hike reminds me of a linnorm — a mossy Norse sort of dragon.

There were a lot of downed trees last year. I couldn't've framed this better if I'd knocked them down myself.
