I love to take pictures.
lots of pictures.
I basically document every inch of my life every day from a simple bowl of cereal, to my child's face, or a heart shaped rock....you name it.....everything's fair game, and everything catches my eye. I don't know why that is, Maybe it's because I am a very Visual person. I want to soak up everything and remember it on film.
Plain and simple, Images just move me, they can lift me up or plunge me into depths of despair. It's one of the reasons I avoid the news as much as I can.
I know it's probably not the smartest way to live, but it's the best way for me. I read and absorb just enough news to be dangerous and that's it. because seriously, I can't take it.
Lately I have been so saddened, like most of the world, with the images of the oil disaster. The animals, the people affected, it's all too much to bear, so I did what any mother with 2 kids and a small business would do, I signed up to volunteer to help!
oh geez, don't ask me how I'll do it, I'll figure that out if and when I ever get called, but I felt compelled to do that from what I've seen image wise, so you see why I try and tune out? ......lose myself in pictures and film....trying hard to think of other things......oye!
So This week I bought 3 Apps for my Iphone that have completely altered my life, if you own an Iphone I suggest you get these too if you haven't already!
1.) Old Camera
3.) tilt/shift generator
They are amazing. I spent most of the week snapping pictures.
These are ALL taken with my Iphone...
the result of these app's is a nostalgic look that is pure genius!
even the most basic and crappy shots somehow look great in this format.
So I will leave you with some images captured from my little corner of the world,
you know, La la land,
that magical place where everything is just fine.........let's escape there and live happily ever shall we?
oh if only for just a minute in a day.............XOXOXO
