It’s been awhile since I posted anything from my collection of iPhone photos. They’ve pretty much been living on my phone for the last year, so I thought I’d put together something a little more comprehensive than a few scattered photos here and there.
Anyway, here’s a little indulgence for my artistic and spontaneous sides.
After a whirlwind trip to DC and back for Christmas, I stopped off in New York to grab a quick bite with an old friend of mine in Chelsea, as well as to give my brain a rest from dealing with near-horizontal rain and crazy holiday traffic.
So much rain over the weekend, so I didn’t get many opportunities to make any pictures outdoors, save for these iPhone photos.
12.26.2009 — NEW YORK — 16th Street and 9th Avenue. This pedestrian signal makes my head want to explode.
12.26.2009 — NEW YORK — This storefront display at the Moschino Boutique on 14th Street pretty much sums up my thoughts on Christmas and the holiday season in general.
I recently started following photographer Chase Jarvis’ Twitter feed @chasejarvis. He’s been posting just about a photo a day off his iPhone, and as a new iPhone owner myself, I was pretty impressed by some of the results.
Sure, the quality is about what you’d expect from a cell phone camera — not going to be making any prints out of these — but I’m definitely interested in its street photography applications. I’m always up for shooting more, since I haven’t really shot every day since I got laid off from the paper. I figure this could be a way to do it. And with an iPhone app like Camera Bag, I can get some cool Holga-like effects out of it, just like this shot I got of my dad while we were doing some yard work today (I’ve had a Holga for awhile now, just been too lazy to run any film through it):
Hardly art, I know, but it’s really just a test run. I’m totally in love with this iPhone!
