Joy in pictures

Apart from making synth noise, my other main creative pursuit is making stained glass. I just finished this and I’m pleased with how it came out.

(I also just realized it’s roughly circular so now it’s my Lines avatar.)

Spring in my garden. I’ve got more into flowers as I’ve got older.

Melissa and Sibilla. Sibilla is a week or two old at this point, I think? Companions at the smallholding we stayed at in Italy on vacation.

This photo is also a return to general purpose photography is fun and should be done more often for me and the family. We recently rediscovered the now ten year old Hipstamatic app, which still exists and is probably old enough to be retro. It’s pretty fun to use. Sure, it’s filters…and filters are everywhere, but it has a clever setting that a) doesn’t save the original unfiltered photo and 2) doesn’t give you the ability to edit the photo after you’ve taken it. I mean, you can still edit the photo…it’s a jpeg…but it’s more like you have to choose your “film” and your “lens” and then your pictures happen through that lens into that film - instead of taking a picture and then fussing with filters. You’re not taking a picture and adding a filter, you’re doing something else which is less about editing and more about snapping sweet pics.

We’ve had a great time the last week or two, taking pictures everyday, sending them back and forth. The 11 year old is into it.

So - in short - Hipstamatic helped us get some joy back in our pictures. Your mileage may vary.

Thank you for posting this. Trying to understand why I see these pictures (and in anime) was an itch I couldn’t scratch!
