The Fauxlaroid Cafe

The best camera you own is the one you have on you. So while sometimes I wish I had my Holga or my D300 with me everywhere I go, that's just plain not practical. Enter the craptastic iPhone 3G and the Shake It photo app from the app store. Instant Fauxlaroid goodness.

This is a quartet of the Calgary firefighters in action during last week's big Chinatown fire. The blaze started at 4 in the morning, and they were still dousing it by 2 in the afternoon.

Alright, gone skiing for the next two days. Have a great weekend!


  1. i cannot believe you'd use an iPhone for photos! i am upset and have lost all respect for you and....wait a sec...those aren't half bad...hmmm....ok carry on

  2. I know, I HATE the iPhone camera. But when used in conjunction with some of the photo apps out there, you can actually get some interesting results. It's kind of like using a Harinezumi to capture digital lo-fi images.
