Today's photo walk through the center of Luxembourg-City also brought me to the old cemetery of Limpersberg, which is part of Luxembourg-City. There are many old and pretentious graves to be discovered, so I made some photos. One sculpture that caught my interest was this beautiful angel sculpted from white marble. I made the original photo with Hipstamatic+Melodie lens+Dream Canvas film-+Ollo Clip and it looked already good but I wanted to make something special out of it so I end up with this after playing around with some of my favorite apps on my iPhone. I finally got a chance to fully test my Ollo Clip today and I must say that it's really worth the money. I love that neat little thingy! To make this picture I used the wide angle lens.
