There is a Buddleia plant just over the fence in next door's garden which is flowering much later than mine. It has been attracting the latest batch of butterflies:
I often use the iOS app 'Living Planet' to make my twisted pictures for Tuesdays but I actually installed it for another feature not available in other similar apps - the ability to make a Tiny Planet video from a standard video file:
Saving the Tiny Planet video is a slow process, especially on my old iPad2. The app appeared to converted 50 seconds of video to 1600 Tiny Planet stills and then made them in to the resulting video. Before the video is saved all the same facilities available to still photos can be used to adjust the final appearance. What surprised me was that it kept the original soundtrack which I wasn't expecting.
The circular line round the 'planet' isn't a kink in the program but a telephone wire which crossed the view. The original was hand held which accounts for some of the movement in the 'planet'. This is a snapshot from the original video.
The movie was cropped to 640x480 before being sent to the iPad for turning in to a Tiny Planet. Finally iMovie was used to add the text.
Cheltenham and the longest day.
