Hipstamatic Garden

Following in the footsteps of Inda Knight and Tania Kindersley, I have succumbed, and purchased the Hipstamatic i phone app available here for $1.19.  It has a choice of  lenses and film and it is supposed to make everything you photograph look beautiful with a vintage hue.

This morning whilst wandering round my garden in my robe, I experimented......

 Tiled water point under the jasmine arch

The Chateau from our garden

 The View

 Weeping Willow


 Gazebo, with climbing roses, just coming out

 The old well, complete with goldfish

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend.


  1. 1.19 (sorry, couldn't find the pound sign) seems like a very good investment to me! Great pics, especially the one of Crusoe at the window. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. These are brill! Your garden is absolutely lovely, and I love the way the app captured the shots. Think I'm going to have to get it :-)

  3. You will think I am stalking you (which - yeah .... kinda)

    but I LOVE these photos so just went and bought this app for myself.

    OMG (OMG, I can't believe I just wrote OMG) even the photo I just took of my laundry on the line looks freaking amazing! If I can figure out how to do it, I'll put this on my blog.

    Thank you! I am going to have SO much fun with this I can tell!!

  4. They are lovely! When can we all arrive?

  5. What lovely photos and what a gorgeous place you call home! Lucky girl!!

  6. Dash, what great pictures you took. Yes. I think the vast expenditure was certainly worth it
