The first time I got so intimate with my iphone was in 2010 when I got to know Hipstamatic –a very cool photography application that is unbeatable until now, in my opinion. Got so addicted to it, I have bought all of its combos –the combination of lenses and films.
And what I like most about this app is that we can make a random combination of lense and film just by shaking our iphone. This random feature creates pictures that are surprising. Sometimes the results are cool, some are not, but I never editted it. Surprises are very much part of the fun. Besides, I like surprises. Life without surprises is boring, you know.
At first I just showed the results on my Facebook. But when Instagram came into the world of apps in 2010, and I soon became its early subscribers in October the same year, I put all my photos on my Instagram account eversince. And then my addiction became double –to Hipstamatic and to Instagram.
So here are some of my shots, taken on the streets of Manhattan, USA, using random hipstamatic.
