Kipling - retro

"Kipling", David Hayes, 2011

It's in the 90's here in Loveland...with humidity climbing. Not a day I enjoy being outside for very long. A day that gives me a chance to explore the camera apps I've been downloading into my new iPhone4. Must have over 20+ by now...some I've not even tried yet. Took this shot of some books in my "library". Used the app, Hipstamatic set for the Jimmy lens, KodotXGrizzled film, flash off.  Just had to's amazing what technology is doing to and for technology! (But my heart still belongs to the darkroom and silver gelatin emulsions!!)

It's an entirely different world of photography now-a-days, but I have to say I love it!

my friends are in love with that 'hipstamatic' thingy...i don't know anything about any of it, but it looks cool!
I went through my old photos the other day, when I got an itch to get out the old 'film camera'...then i found out a friend of mine scored a complete darkroom set up at a yard sale for FIFTY DOLLARS!! (jealous!!) he invited me over when it's set up! should be fun...a new experience for me.
anyway, i finally am catching up on everyone's blogs...i never realized how busy i can get doing nothing in particular!! :)

@ Bill ~ It is indeed! My heart still belongs to the the smell of fix and the magic of an image appearing in the developer bath!

@ Jen ~ I'm learning as I go with these apps...the possibilities are incredible! You'll love working in the darkroom...I've been away from mine too long...time to get it up and running again!
