They say that a picture speaks a thousand words.
I love photos. I think that a good photographer can really capture a moment, and that resulting photo will indeed speak to its viewer.
I, however, am not one of those good photographers. But I would like to be!
I have a really nice camera that I bought a few years ago off of eBay. I still don't know how to use said camera. Even worse, I am constantly forgetting to bring said camera to photo-worthy events. I am really trying to work on that.
BUT, I DO always have my trusty iPhone. It takes okay pictures, not great ones. But I found this app this week (yes, I know I sound like J) that I think is kinda cool. It's called Hipstamatic, and it takes pictures that are "vintage" looking.
I know engineers have worked for years to constantly improve cameras and resulting picture quality, but I think it's kinda fun to have these pictures with such a unique look.
So this week (and always), pictures make me feel good. And I promise, I'll keep working on my skills.
Until then, take a peek at some of my Hipstamatic shots (unfortunately, plants and animals were my only subjects this week...they can't run away).
