It’s a funny old world in general and in particular it’s a funny old social media world. I doubt that on a macro level the full impact of social media in its multitudinous forms on our lives is anywhere near fully understood: on a micro level I don’t fully comprehend the impact of social media as I engage with it on my own life. Case in point: Dublin’s Pigeon House (not) and my *Instagram feed.

January was a chilly month unless, of course, you live in the Southern Hemisphere. Chilly is relative but used as I am to Ireland’s temperate climate I felt the cold bite as temperatures dropped to zero or a little below. Brrr.
Yes, yes, I am a little late with this. I cannot use the excuse that September has one day fewer than most other months as today is the 3rd October so I am, er, actually, three days late. And of course how could I forget that there were only thirty days in September when I have what is probably the world’s best know mnemonic to remind me. You all know the rhyme:
Meteorologically speaking August was a wicked month: wickedly good and wickedly bad. The Irish weather flip-flopped in a way that would have shamed your average politician. Some days dark clouds scudded like missiles across the sky discharging their watery cargo hither and thither and on others the sun shone a bright sunflower-yellow in a clear blue sky.
One of the things on my to-do list for 2012 is to learn how to use Photoshop, so to set the ball in motion I downloaded Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 Editor from the Apple app store. The quick peek I took at it has left me wondering how I am going to master the myriad transformational possibilities it offers. When I was downloading Photoshop I also downloaded a couple of other much simpler photo apps. I am not for a nano second going to pretend I have any special photographic skills; I get by using my camera in a basic way. So this is neither a review nor a ‘how to’ post, merely a quick look at what the photographic and the tech challenged (that’s me) can do with a few apps.
