I thought I’d throw a little something beautiful out there today. We had a messy snowstorm here in Halifax yesterday! At first I thought it was so beautiful, and then I remembered how awful it is to trudge through the snow with holey boots!!! Anyhow…I’ve discovered some new apps, and although I’m not sure how I feel about all these filtery things that everyone’s been into these days, I think they look pretty neat, and have the power to time travel images. I also wonder though, do these old-timey filters magically make every photo look cool? Is everyone a photographer these days?
Maybe I’m thinking too much again. My other questions is…..why? Why does an over exposed image look so cool? Or an old negative that’s been sitting in the sun too long? Or expired film? I’m kind of fascinated by it all. Maybe we are already missing our old film cameras, and to make an digital image look like an image on film brings us back in time, and makes us feel good. What do you think? Everyone and their dog owns a fancy digital SLR these days. Where does that image addiction come from? Nostalgia is such a funny thing.
Well, Keep clicking away!! Enjoy your Thursday!
