Was organizing my frame files and came across these gems that seemingly escaped their few moments of glory. Could my dog be any more hilarious/adorable/absolutely extraordinary? I think not. Dave's pretty neat, too. Forgive my monochrome tendencies, I've been a black and white gal these days. Perhaps my love of contrast and all things gray is taking over every aspect of my wee little world...
Haven't been sitting on this last one for too long, but I couldn't help adding it in.
I adore my parents. In fact, I adore everything about where I came from.
Goodness me oh my. I've been neglecting the blog. I've also been neglecting my trigger finger. My lens time seems to have taken a backseat to school/work/life and I've been feeling a bit depressed about that. But then I stopped being depressed and started being delighted, because even though my DSLR hasn't been making its usual daily magic, my point and shoot has. And by point and shoot, I mean my iphone. My little documentaries of everyday occurrences via phone camera and various apps are kind of ruling my life at the moment.
There's something so refreshingly simple about it. Taking silly little shots with a very simple camera and minimal post-processing...it's FUN. You get that same, split-second gratification as you do with polaroids, at a fraction of the cost. The grainy, imperfect characteristics of the images make me feel all nostalgic and vintagey. This love parallels the concept of Wabi-Sabi, a design/philosophical approach that embraces imperfect oddities and true, basic aesthetics. I'm thinking this could be a new way of life for yours truly.
So I thought I'd share a few of my instantaneously awesome shots. I have a few favorite apps, namely Instagram, CameraBag, Gorillcam and Diptic. Instagram has quite possibly the coolest filters, I'm an addict.
On a side note, Bombay Bicycle Club is rocking my world right now. Their song "the Hill" is perfect with a little sunshine on your shoulders and nature in your atmosphere.
"And alright let's go outside and ride ride ride to the meaning of life..."
