The Gallery Is Open

Having some “artistic” fun this morning messing around with the Prisma app. A photographer friend on Instagram loves it. I thought I’d give it a play myself.

I’ve run a few photos through it. These first two may (I hope!) look familiar to you. I used the app to “artwork” the original front and back cover photographs for Distances:

It also proved really useful with this problem. Immediately below is a Place de la Sorbonne, Paris, photo I took the 1990s and which I’ve never posted here. The reason is it’s a tad blurry and in those “old” days before iPhones in the last decade of the twentieth century, you didn’t know a pic was imperfect until you got the film developed days or weeks – or even months – later, of course:

But run it through Prisma and suddenly it’s “Impressionist” art:


Hope you’re having a good Sunday. 🙂
