My wife scored a pair of NOS, handmade in the USA, Chisholm boots off eBay for a song. They were delivered this afternoon and when she put them on she kept them on. Keepers! For fun, I took some shots of the boots with my iPhone–again using the Hipstamatic app.

It’s my Friday off so I spent a few minutes this morning with my iPhone 4 figuring out how to get the Hipstamatic app to record in high resolution. The low rez shots are cool for quicky snap sharing, but for archiving and blog posts 1936×1936 is the way to go. I posted the first blue globe image a couple of weeks ago–it was shot in low rez using a wacky Hipstamatic “film” selection. This one was shot in high rez with the app set to a much tamer “film” selection.
BTW, the blue globes are solar powered night lights for the patio.

I took this shot with my iPhone using the Hipstamatic camera app. The super tweaked, in-camera processing came out looking weirdly cool so I’m posting it. Why not?

My daughter took me to an SF Giants ballgame last night. It was a blast, but, unfortunately, was also a work night. I got home at 12:30 AM and had to get up 3 hours later to head out on my wee hours morning commute. Needless to say I’m spent. I took a lot of shots with my G11 and T2i, but I’m too beat to process them. So here’s the iPhone shot I took (using the Hipstamatic app) and sent to my Facebook friends during the game.
BTW, it was the Giants vs the Reds and the Giants lost. C’est la vie.

From the San Francisco Bay Area to Halifax, Nova Scotia and back–by train. Incredible 10,000 mile trip! Surreal end to the whole thing while waiting a couple of hours for the shuttle bus in the Martinez Amtrak station. I felt like I was in an R. Crumb comic entitled “Welcome back to the good ol’ USofA.” The entire Canadian experience was quite a contrast.
This was my last shot of the trip–not the best of the last, but THE last. The G11 was packed away for the bus ride, so this shot of the train leaving us behind is from my handy iPhone camera.
[I’ll put together an album of my fave shots of the trip sometime soon.]
iPhone catches the moment.
