My day job is located in North Etobicoke in Toronto, and frankly it is not the most picturesque part of town. However, in the morning light there are things of interest I pass by every day, as I walk from the bus station to the office.
This week I am in Scottsdale, Arizona and it is hot even for this time of year: over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, 40 C every day. Today’s image is the view I get when I step out of my hotel room, captured on my iPhone using the Hipstamatic app and “infrared” film. The “wrong” colours actually capture the feeling of being in this spot better than accurate colour rendition ever would.
I’ve already posted a couple of times on my Toronto Transit Commission iPhone/Hipstamatic project, and now I can post the final slideshow video of what has come out of the project. I’ve added some audio I recorded of the ride between two stations on the line, a well as some original music.
I continue to be amazed at what images can be found riding the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission subway). There is a raw, gritty intensity to be found inside every subway car that I find irresistible.
I continue to use the iPhone 3GS and the Hipstamatic app; so far, none of my subjects have been aware of me taking their picture. I feel though that eventually I will get caught out, and I wonder how the situation will play out. If I want to keep doing “street” photography, it is something I will have to deal with.
