October Mosaic


Row 1: 1. Giants, Midgets and Oddballs at Ochs Fruit Farm in Lancaster, 2. Ochs, 3. Go This Way, 4. Mums, 5. More Wag, Less Oink (Fairfield County Fair)

Row 2: 1. Piglet Plea, 2. Goat Grin, 3. Fair Rides, 4. Stick Horse Race, 5. Sunflower Seeds (all Fairfield County Fair)

Row 3: 1. Goldenrod, 2. Preying Mantis, 3. Last Sunflower, 4. Heroic Grasshopper, 5. Last Coneflower (all school Land Lab + Yucca in the next row)

Row 4: 1. Yucca, 2. This one has a story. So our master bath is decorated with a bird theme. We've lived in the house for almost 17 years and I just noticed that there are two birds in the marbling of the vanity -- a short, stout Twitter-like bird on the right, and a caricature of partridge on the left. Imagine all I'd see if I really paid attention!!! 3. Fin du Monde beer bubbles, 4. Food For Thought tasting event at Old Worthington Library -- Bleu Cheeses, 5. Now Panic and Freak Out (we resisted buying this at Sur la Table when we got the new bowls...but it was hard not to...)

Row 5: 1. The five bowls that replaced the one I broke, 2. Which Contrail Do You Leave -- Delicate, Bold, or Meandering?, 3. X Marks The Spot Where The Moon Is, 4. Tic-Tac-Cloud-o (all three cloud pictures were the same morning -- inspirational sky!) 5. Celebrating Josie!

Row 6: 1. Who Made This Nest?, 2. Our Punkin', 3. Sunflower with new filter app, 4. Apple Crisp with new mosaic app, 5. Starbucks with new mosaic app


You can see the pictures full-size on Flickr.

My two new favorite photo apps on my iPhone are FilterMania 2 (I could play with this one all day!) and Mosaicam (shoot a mosaic rather than having to go back afterward and build it).

  1. Always beautiful, Mary Lee. I love what sunflowers do, to think those beginning flowers produce that! Thanks for the photo apps-will give them a try!

  2. You are absolutely amazing! When your first book of poetry, illustrated with your photographs, comes out, I will be first in line to buy it!

  4. Love your photo mosaics. I think you should start a greeting card business. (Actually, I think Carol's idea is better.) I especially like the white streaks across the sky. I'll be checking out the apps, too. Thanks.

  5. This is wonderful - great idea. How do you create your mosaic? Is it a specific program?

    1. I make a set on Flickr, then use the mosaic maker on BigHugeLabs:
