this and that.

while in the car on our way to st. augustine

i was playing around with paul's new cell phone.

much to my surprise it had some pretty cool photo editing options on it.

so, from the photos he had on his phone,

i did some editing.

thought i would share.

no too shabby for a cell phone!
