I have this little photo backup tool from Google. It just sits there, in my toolbar and as soon there’s a new photo, it uploads it. Unlimited storage, as I’ve chosen a smaller format — not full resolution. Same thing on the iPhone … as soon as I take a photo, it gets uploaded. I don’t know that it’s the world’s best solution, and it’s not my main storage place [I can’t find out how to tag them!], but it’s an additional security, I guess.
There are hundreds of apps, nowadays, where you can process your photos … apply various ‘filters’ and so on … I have a couple of them but rarely use them. They can turn your picture into something completely different from what it was originally.
Anyway, this Google Auto Backup … every now and then it applies some filters to your photo, and you get notified about this, as a «suggestion» … it’s up to you if you want to keep it or not. Most of the times I find them silly [they can be animated too], but then there is the occasional one I fall for, like this one here above!
This was a photo I shot back in 2013 and never thought much about it. When it showed up yesterday, in the list of ‘suggested edits’, I liked it. It looked almost a little ‘HDR-ish’.
I remember well when and where it was taken, it’s a small fishing village in Sweden, named Bönhamn. This house was blue, as opposed to all the other, little cottages that were red.
