Right now…

…my guess is that some of the pictures I took at a car cruise this afternoon are going to be a lot more interesting than the story I’m going to write about the event.

I’ve had fun playing with the Hipstamatic photography app on my iPhone (Thanks, FireMom!), and it seemed like a gathering of old cars would be a great time to use an application that makes the pictures look old too.

I’m still getting the hang of the different “lens” and “film” combinations, and I’m still struggling with the viewfinder for the app — it’s a little hard to come up with the composition I’m looking for — but the results are still pretty cool. My mom has dozens of albums filled with prints that look like this; it’s fun to see how closely I can replicate the look and feel of those old shots with my phone.
