Seemingly random series

I’m a big fan of the Hipstamatic camera app for the iPhone. The app has quite a few film/lens “paks” to choose from, but “Ina’s 69” film and the “John S” lens are my defaults. This combination produces relatively clean images with wildly different colorizing depending on the quality of light. Here are three shots I took during our recent trip to Seattle/Vancouver, and except for desaturating the brownish borders (Ina’s needs a border update), resizing for the blog and adding touch of sharpening, the images are straight from my Hipstamiticized, iPhone 4 camera roll.

Unknown quest

The end of our first leg of the journey was Seattle. We hadn’t been there in quite a few years so when we stepped off the train I had no idea what the glowing blue arch overhead was. I thought, “Wow, that’s cool…”, and pulled out the G11 to take a few shots. Turns out its Quest Field, but at the moment it was simply the unknown blue arch.
