About a month ago I got one of them faaaancy phones. A big part of me was holding out for as long as I could because I knew it would become addicting to be connected all the time. But mostly I held out because of my recently developed phobia of 2011. I find myself longing for the days of the 80’s when we played with Nintendo 64, answered chain letters by mail and made mixed tapes for our current crush. I’m scared of the future and raising children in it surrounded by all this media. It’s overwhelming at times. With that being said, you need to know I’m a huge hypocrite because I actually love technology and become a super geek every time I get to play with something new. So of course…I love my new phone. And although I can safely say I’m not yet addicted, I sure am enjoying playing with it.
Which brings me to the Vignette camera feature. I think it’s Android’s answer to the Hipstamatic – but really, I think it might be better. (But that’s just because I’m set on dissing the iPhone because it’s considered so cool, even though I’m a Mac girl.) I’ve been having fun the last couple of days with Vignette, so I thought I’d share a selection of the photos from it for fun (Non-seriousness twice this week! Look at me go!).
I think there’s a chance these kinds of pictures are heading towards being overdone at this point online, but I’m okay with that. And can we just admire for a second what the summer light filter on the camera made my hair look like? I would give anything for it to be that beautiful in real life. I put that in there just because of that. I look so serious and obviously squinting from the sun… BUT THE HAIR! LOOK AT THE HAIR! And extra credit to anyone who can guess where that church is from in that last picture (those from around here are exempt!).
