searles castle and an antiquarian book fair


while visiting massachusetts last weekend I happened upon an antiquarian book fair at searles castle. below is a picture I took while looking out over the backyard from the castles balcony.  I wish I could tell you what lens I used on my iphone to get these effects-it was pure accident. I think I need to take a class at the apple store!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

You took these with your PHONE? Incredible. The greens are so lush and the castle... I used to live in Queens, incidentally! Amy Barlow Liberatore

I also had to google the castle. Isn't it gorgeous? And as Tanya said, perfect for the event.
Your photos are nifty. Do you really have more than one lens on your camera phone? I'm impressed. I know my phone takes photos but I don't know how it does it. I'm the classic picture-of-my-foot accidental photog.
