Pictures etc.

This is a pretty simple post: we’d just like to share some pictures we’ve been taking lately of day-to-day living and the beautiful things here. Some of these have that “vintage” look; we’ve been playing around with Instagram lately.  Although it’s probably just a passing fad, at least it does encourage us to take more pictures!  If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you may have already seen some of these. 

The biggest issue for me with phone cameras is the color; they just can’t seem to capture the vividness of things.  Fun vintage filters are a way to try to get it in there, but it’s still not the same as a real camera.  Anyway, here’s our favorites:

The End.

(As a random note, those are all phone-camera pictures with the exception of the rice paddies.  Phones have come a long way!)
