As you might be able to tell, I really like photography. My husband and I have many a camera; digital SLRs, film SLRs, medium format film cameras, and a Leica. One type of camera we have never been good at maintaining? Point-and-shoots.
When I first met Dan, he had a point-and-shoot camera that produced a permanent spot on all the images. If it were framed it right, you too could have a black spot on your forehead. After that camera finally breathed its last breath, we used a Canon Powershot that Dan gave me for Christmas one year. That served us well… until I lost it (and all our wedding/honeymoon pictures) on our honeymoon cruise.
So now, I use my iPhone as a point-and-shoot. If Cameron is being cute, I’ll snap a photo with the camera app. But if the photography bug bites me, I grab a Nikon.
So, I like the challenge of trying to look through my iPhone screen with a photographer’s eye.
Today, I had to get my blood drawn. Well, to be truthful, last month I was supposed to get my blood drawn. But I got around to doing it today. I thankfully remembered to pull out my phone and tried to find something image worthy.
I used my Instagram app to boost the colour of the photo a bit. (Are you on Instagram? You should friend me. My moniker is mompants).
