Over the weekend I downloaded my very first apps - Instagram and Hipstamatic. Now, I do realise that I am quite possibly the last person on earth to discover these very useful phone-tography tools... but aren't they just the best thing since sliced bread?! Ingenious - great for making incredibly crap photos seem less crappy. Very handy for when you need to capture a moment and don't have time to check lighting, frame it up, etc etc etc. You can snap away without much care or precision because you can always count on retro filters to make things look cool...

...however, there's always going to be one captured 'moment' that no amount of faded retro funkiness is going to fix.


  1. ah ah ah!!! love the last picture :)

    and I don't even have a cell phone so I didn't know about those apps. I have work cell phones (I'm an event planner) but generally when I use them it is because there is a problem with something (like how come the wine is not there yet!!!).
