We had a chance to adventure north to the Mount Vernon tulip festival today. I armed myself with my standard fare, a Canon DSLR with a 100mm macro lens, and a 50mm, and a simple 35mm film camera.

What really surprised me was how much I enjoyed using my phone with the vignette application. It's grainy, imperfect, unpredictable, and.. lovely. I have a slew of more visually accurate photos that I'm proud of. But the ones that I truly love were taken with this application.

And while the pictures are nowhere near perfect, I feel like the mood of the adventure was captured better with a gritty and grainy picture than with a perfectly color balanced panorama.


  1. *is jealous* I want a DSL camera too. :(

  2. Hello and welcome to my blog!

    I love my DSLR!! I love being able to control my lenses (I'm a prime lens snob) and I pride myself on only shooting manual. With that being said, I'm super surprised that I love this app so much! :D It's like having a digital polaroid camera, if that makes any sense at all. :)
