I popped two bubbles in lockdown

Drawing of hill with people in their bubbles, walking, biking, running. Two bubbles touch and pop. A Bubble Bath.

Bubbles in lockdown do pop: hand sanitiser to the rescue.

Yesterday a cold rainy day gave way to sunshine and Mt Victoria was foaming with people with people exercising in the fresh air. People on bikes, with kids, with dogs, everyone dutifully keeping inside our isolation bubbles.

Then along came friends with a new puppy and I patted it. (Your Honour, my hand moved independently of my will. The puppy made me do it.) Luckily my friends had a bottle of hand sanitiser for this very purpose, and I was safe again.

Please help me fix my photos of Bad Drawings

In lockdown, I’m doing a Bad Drawing every day, nudged on by an online group called Morning Scribbles.

I photograph the drawing on my iPhone and depending on the light, it may come out as if on blue paper, like this. Can anyone tell me how to correct the blue on the iPhone before I AirDrop it to my Mac? Or on Graphic Converter, which I use for a rough edit of images on my Mac. (I know white correction, but it’s often too extreme.) That would be a blessing. I like a quick and simple solution. Thank you!

    Those pesky puppies will make you do most anything they want.

      Too true.

  2. I actually don’t mind the blue background on your drawings. We all are just a shade blue in isolation so it seems fitting.

      Ha, that’s good, Andrew. I could pretend it was intentional.

    On the phone open Photos, select a photo, tap on Edit. Then mess with the settings at the bottom. The interlocking bubbles allows you to choose different tones, for example. And those puppies! darn them. I bet it was cute. 🐶

      Thank you thank you Miraz. It was adorable, a bitser with lab and poodle (but not a labradoodle) like a baby lab with a brain.

    Not a clue. Didn’t even notice the issue. Scribble on!

    I’m with Elizabeth, same response. But if you’ve happy to fiddle with your gadget then do it…maybe you will end up with another “tone colour” 🙂 Everyone who knows me that they can often see a blurry photo – I used to get really “mad” about that, but now, apparently it’s a special skill to create photographs like that. This mornings photograph is of the MADE delivery box that my most fav courier dropped off – and it’s pretty clear it’s a “box of something on the porch”
    All the somethings are either in my fridge or freezer for consumption over this week…when it will all begin again next week!

  6. It’s difficult to take pictures of drawings and art. I struggle with that all the time. You can do some light and brightness adjustments on phone and you can also slightly edit the picture on computer, phone or laptop.
