it's quite an obsession at this point

Please don't tell me that you're tired of my iPhone photos. I actually have some new work to share soon but in the meantime, look at how fun and cool these images are! I took them with the iPhone and then I processed them with the free Photoshop application.

Downtown on Beaver Street

Yesterday I was all over the city. First I went downtown to shoot some images that were commissioned and after I finished I wandered around the Wall Street area, I had lunch with my sister and niece, then I went up to the Flatiron for a meeting and then I went to the bookstore in Union Square. I had my d300 and 18-200mm glass around my neck and my iPhone in hand all day. It's sort of freeing. The same as if I were shooting with my Polaroid. It's funny that these little cameras are so limited but also liberating at the same time. Does that make sense? I think so.

Happy weekend!

Today's Soundtrack:
Shakira-She Wolf
Words cannot accurately express how much I love Shakira. I've been listening to her music since I was 16 years old. I saw her in concert with my sister and it was the best concert I have ever been to. She sang every thing...the majority was in Spanish which of course, I loved because those are the roots and she never forgets that. Oh I love her.

Your iPhone pics are fantastic! I'm a photographer, and I agree with you about how freeing it is to use an iPhone or polaroid.
Love your blog, and will have to follow you! Found you through a cup of jo.

you are knocking me out-- they are great pics and no way could I replicate even with an iphone of my own, which I am waiting to purchase the moment my current motorola craps out. Maybe I should just drop it in the toilet and get on with it.

Shakira is such a very eccentric woman. I love her worm like body moves. Ah! It’s just so amazing!
