Use Snapseed as a Time Machine - and go back in time

Recently, perhaps because I am over 60 and past halftime, I have been reflecting on past experiences - and on those who have influenced my life.

My grandmother was one of those people. We had a lot of fun together, and that fun included a trip to the 1964 World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, NY.

When I photographed the Unisphere this past weekend, I thought about old times and old photos.

I took my original photo with my Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 15mm lens. The fish-eye lens created the curvature in the image, and setting the aperture to f/22 gave me the starburst effect. I added the vintage look in Nik Software's Snapseed, which I have loaded on my iPad.

I guess my wife, Susan, was reminiscing about old times, too. She also used Snapseed on her iPad to create a back-in-time image.

For a few more Snapseed images, see my Creative Plug-ins page.

Explore the light,
Rick
