Having a camera attached to the iPhone really is an amazing thing. Inasmuch as I carry the thing with me most places, that means I have a camera most of the time. The first shot is of the sunrise I saw this morning riding my bicycle in to work (using the Pano app to make a panorama).
This is a shot of the coffee table we’ve got under the west window. It’s an underutilized spot, but the presence of the window and the Monitor heater next to it means there’s not a lot we can do with it. I used the Toy Camera app to take this shot, which takes a photo and then applies some sort of filter to the image. I’m not sure what filter was used here, but I like the way it looks. Vintagey.
Across from the office is a protected area that was the site of a some sort of resource extraction. It’s a nice spot to take a break at lunchtime, and I enjoy walking Nika and Piper on it in the winter (or around it when it’s not frozen). The hill in the distance is Ester Dome, the high point of the Equinox Marathon that Andrea will be running in a few weeks.
The photo was constructed from three photos using an iPhone app called AutoStitch. I’ve done this process on my Mac using Hugin, and it works well. But AutoStitch can do the whole process right on the iPhone, now has a cropping feature to trim off the extraneous curvature at the edges, and does the whole thing with almost no effort on the user’s part. Very slick.
