Welcome to my swinging space-age bachelor pad. Wood paneling, shag carpets and Martin Denny on the hi-fi. Mix yourself a cocktail from the bar, sit back in an Eames lounge chair, and hopefully enjoy a few photos.

First up are some photos I took on a rainy Sunday afternoon near Mount Si in Washington. All are on classic Hipstamatic as I was too far out of range of cell phone reception for Hipstamatic X. I had "shake to randomize" on, which always makes for some fun combinations.

Kent - this is a wonderful piece of work, you need to add your Everyday Susie shots to this portfolio. It would make a stunning coffee table edition. I can just see a large format, art paper volume, just waiting to be admired. Lets see more!

It didn't even occur to me to try that. I had to lose the border to do that, but that's not such a bad thing.
I was going to choose the landscape version as I thought it highlighted those fab streaks of light… but this is my favorite! And I prefer it sans border. :inlove:

I'd go portrait, hands down, as the more vertical format gives the diagonal perspective lines room to breathe. Theres definitely a more pronounced 'zoom' effect as the eye travels into the photo. The landscape version is good, but truncates the effect too much for me and loses the depth of field in the shot. Beautiful work btw
Hmmmmm… so interesting to see things from someone else’s eyes. My eyes “jumped” to the landscape version, but now I see the portrait version differently.

I think it kinda comes down to the fact it’s a great shot and all the versions have unique merit. :)

I've been having a real struggle with depression all summer (I call it Flamin' Hot™ Seasonal Depression) but I've finally managed to take a couple of photos that I'm not entirely embarrassed to share. I already posted the scooter shot in the Hipstamatic Shimokitazawa Hipstapak thread. Here's another of a visually impaired man out for a walk, taken with the same Hipstapak. I think this pack works well in bright sunlight.

Sorry to hear you’ve been struggling… and I hope the coming cooler weather is soothing for you.

These are great… I especially love the Vespas. And don’t forget… never be embarrassed here - it’s all about growing and learning, and so many times an image we think is “meh” can really speak to someone. :inlove:
