Imperfect photos, on purpose

My friend Anna is in town and we met up today for lunch.    We went down to a great cafe by the Hudson River, and as is often the case when Anna is around, there were photos.

As we sat and chatted and Maya and Anna compared iPhone apps, we were laughing about the fact that now that we have the ability to take crystal clear photos with perfect detail, what we really love is to put them into an application that makes them look old and decidedly imperfect.

Go figure.

Here are some of the photos I took today, re-worked for effect.

Ben, Anna & Maya as they might look had I used a peel off instamatic

Heavy on the blue "portrait" framed shot of one of the old piers

Same shot, different effects. Cool, huh?

More old rusty pier structure...

This is my favorite of the pier shots - aged to perfection

About Amy

Amy Milstein was born and raised on a farm in Indiana, but after 20+ years considers herself a full-fledged New Yorker. She is married with two kids, who do not go to school but are instead life learners. This means they learn by living in the world (real life ) instead of hearing about it and simulating it in a classroom. With her family, Amy loves to travel, read, watch movies, write, sew, knit - the list is endless.
