Hi all,

We were down in San Jan Capistrano last weekend and I came across these water lilies in the Mission area. They were so colorful and reminded me of Monet’s famous water lily collection I had viewed earlier in the year whilst visiting the de Young in San Francisco, so I gave it a bit of a painterly feel. Hope you like it…

I was messing around with some sounds and found an intro to an old Big Band recording I have, as well as a talking segment from legendary Xavier Cugat where he talks about the joy of bringing people together through music… I added it to the beat mix for this short segment. Hope you like it and I’m working on some extended versions with a Latin/Cuban flavor.

 

The picture was taken in the colorful town of La Boca, Buenos Ares, Argentina outside of a Tango Cafe

Thanks for taking a listen and if you like it share it 🙂

I was just trying this app on my cell phone and found it to be really comprehensive, easy to use and fun!! It will do all the basics, like cropping, resizing, rotating etc., and then has loads of fun stuff like filters, effects, overlays, collage, text and more… I really like it so far and is one of the better ones out there for real editing on the go.

Here is a photo edited in Pixlr
