Pick the Flowers

Way back when I was a terrible teen I would get so excited to stumble on a poll or quiz in my Sassy magazine. Anyone remember that publication? Ever since WordPress included the “Add Poll” button I’ve been eager to try it but couldn’t think of how. Recently I was editing a picture when it hit me. Here’s my polling opportunity! So before I forget as posting ideas tend to vanish as quickly as they materialize, I thought I’d pin this one down.

These are all the same shot filtered through the app, Pic Grunger. I like the aging effects. I feel they add some nostalgia and texture to an otherwise flat image. What do you think? If you wouldn’t mind humoring me and trying out the polling feature it will give me an idea of how it works.

    Lovely idea—can’t resist a poll (and yes, I remember Sassy and its ilk)! Pic Grunger looks like a lot of fun. Great results!

      YM! I nearly forgot about that one! I can picture Wil Wheaton on the cover! Sheena, I am sure that you and I played pacman across from each other at the pizza place on Friday nights when we were kids. We are two peas you and me.

    If I may hasten to add, I like the aged canvas look. But could that be because I am aging?

    Thank God I’m finally in the majority on this flower pic! BTW, I did a Sassy post. It’s super short, but it will trigger your memory: http://sanceau.com/2013/02/23/i-had-a-vision-street-wear-of-love/

    Yes I agree with you! That aged apperance is very appealing. I guess we all are a bit nostalgic inside. 🙂

      I agree Ninna! Nostalgia has more of a sentimental appeal.
