Just waiting for the train back to the hotel. Having some fun taking pictures with my iPhone and trying out the different apps. This one is the lo-mob app.
Electricity. Come on. You know you want it. You know you’ll use it, possibly abuse it, and not even say thank you. Except for my friends Roxanne and Annie who love and cuddle each and every photon that they use. I know. I’ve seen the pictures.
Tonight we stopped at the grocery store and as we were walking in I noticed the power lines next to the parking lot. I thought about the fact that I walk past them a couple times a month and I think about the engineering feat of how such a thin structure can be so tall and stable in CNY weather but I rarely think about the quantity of electricity that pours through those lines every second. I try to be “green” in many ways but without my camera(s) and computer I’m not sure what I’d do!
I took this photograph with my iPhone using the Hipstamatic App. The specific settings were John S Lens, Kodot XGrizzled film, and no flash. The sun was low in the sky and there were some great puffy clouds for an interesting background.
And from the look of things, that may be true…
Was on my way to the Limp Lizard for dinner (mmmmm… BBQ!) and thinking about my picture of the day when I passed by this little self contained scene. The “No Parking” seemed inconsistent with the yellow parking lane lines and the “Fire Lane” seemed to fit the rough and worn look of the entry way – almost like it may have been on fire before. The bright red color of the building just made the whole thing come together for me. Luckily the sun hadn’t gone down yet so I got a decent hand held shot using my iPhone. A smarter me would have had my dSLR with me. Dang!
Photo info: iPhone, f/2.8, 1/40 sec, 3.9mm, ISO 80, no flash.
So glad it’s finally Friday! What a crazy two weeks of work I’ve had. I have missed being able to post photos but now I have a nifty iPhone app that lets me upload a post from my phone. This is my test run so I hope it works or I’m going to feel pretty silly…
While I was in Boston I took a bunch of photos with my Canon Rebel XT (350D) but haven’t had a chance to process all my photos yet. Boston is a GREAT place to visit and to take photos. Historic sites, buildings, parks, waterfront, aquarium, boats, a whole bunch of stuff that I couldn’t even begin to see in four days. So… in lieu of some “real” shots, I am posting a few shots from my iPhone. When I take photos with my Rebel, I try to process the shots to be as true to the scene as I can. But when I use my iPhone, it’s like playing with a really fun toy. I processed these photos with the Hipstamatic software. My favorite combination of “film” and “lens” is “Kodot XGrizzled” film and the “John S” lens. The pictures below were taken with a few combinations: Kodot XGrizzled with John S lens (church photos, Boston skyline), Kodot XGrizzled with Kaimal Mark II lens (fire escape), Claunch 72 Monochrome with Buckhorst H1 lens (seagull on pier). Which combination do you like?
