My Current Obsession

 An election clerk totally hassled me for taking a photo of this old fire truck

I feel all twitchy this morning because I left my iPhone on the kitchen counter, but the two of us are usually inseparable.  It has become a lifeline to social media, news, maps, and serves a a great distraction for the kids at the doctor's office.  Recently, I downloaded a free app called Instagram.  It's a way to take photos and apply cool filters to them and then share them with others.  You share them through instagram and you can also upload them to Flickr, Twitter, Facebook and FourSquare.  It's really cool.

The playground looks much cooler

A jar of candy at works seems more interesting
I took two pieces.

Clowns look scarier

Even your kids look cuter!

I guess what I like about it is that it's simply sharing a photo without a long explanation and people who follow your profile can "like" or comment on a photo.  It's like tweeting in a purely photographic format.  If you have an iPhone (it's only available through them right now) I highly, highly recommend this app.  My name is katetheowl, so find me!  We can share some photothoughts.

  1. I love having a phone that takes pictures...there are so many times you are just out and about and you see the moment right there. I wish I had an i-phone so I could insta with you. But, alas I do not. :-)

  2. I love your pictures and love seeing them on twitter. Hopefully they will add it to the Droid soon!

  3. It takes amazing pictures, for sure! You are also a great picture-taker :)

  4. Very cool.

    Sadly, I have only have an ipod, not an iphone. Maybe someday...
