Instant Gratification

 On Sunday, I made an enormous technological upgrade.  
I am now a proud owner of a 16G, white iPhone 4, courtesy of my gracious, wonderful father.  I have an iPod Touch, but not the one with a camera, so having this iPhone with all these picture and filming capabilities is addicting!  There is this fantastic camera app called Instagram, which is basically a photo-taking twitter, except you can edit the photos with a selection of different lenses.  I think I am obsessed-- and it's free.  Go download it if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch with a camera :).
I would like to present to you some of my amateur-but-I-wish-I-they-were-professional photographs.


I'm having so much fun.  It makes me yearn for an actual Lomographic or Hipstamatic camera with all these different lens and filters!  The photo above is one of the first I took with the app, and so far it's my favorite.  Which do you like best?

Listening: "Helena Beat" by Foster the People (their debut album, Torches, is now available!)

I am a recently converted iPhone user too, hehe. :D I have to say it's quickly become my best friend in these past two weeks I've had it. I'm still in the process of downloading as many free apps as I can find, haha. Tell me if you find any other good ones! Yay for expensive electronics! :)

I checked out your Florida post from before, I'm glad you had a good time :). Vacations are always welcome, I agree. The picture of you with the sarong is gorgeous--all of the pictures are wonderful. The animal and plant life there seems fascinating too.
IPHONEEE! Awesome! The way it allowed you to edit your photos is really cool. I see your shell projects are coming along quite nicely :). They all look really cool, I think my favorite might be the guitar, and your dog is so cute!
