I was playing around with Instagram and Hipstamatic while waiting on my tea to steep the other night, and I came up with this shot. I think it’s very simple but very comforting at the same time. I’ve had so much Lady Grey that I can practically taste it just by looking at this picture!
I’m an amateur photographer (read: I have a camera that I don’t quite know how to use, but I really like taking pictures with it) and seeing this simple yet massively informative “cheat sheet” made a lot of things make tons more sense to me.

There are some benches outside of where I work that don’t seem to serve any purpose. By and large, no one even knows they’re there. I’ve never seen anyone sitting on them, despite the fact they’re in a somewhat shady spot behind the building. I was roaming around this morning looking for interesting and/or unusual things to shoot (as I am wont to do from time to time) and decided that even though these benches aren’t particularly spectacular, I wanted to document them; patiently waiting for when anyone that happens to walk by might be tired and need to rest a moment. Something about that struck me as being very kind and generous of them. Taken with my iPhone using Hipstamatic.
Another photograph that I’ve edited to give a gloomy, apocalyptic feel to. I took this with the default iPhone camera app, and then I used an app called PhotoForge2 to apply various filters to it. I like the way this one turned out. It reminds me of a cross between a classic sepia-toned photo… and the end of the world. 😉
