Old school – NEW world

Bridging the gap . . .

Washing machine . . .

One or two weeks ago I washed my iPod Touch 5G . . . yeh, left in a pocket on my carpenter’s pants . . . managed to retrieve it before it got toasted in the dryer. So . . . I sort of gave it up as a lost cause and left it on the dining table.

After a few days I tried the power button to see if there was any sign of life . . . no . . . then I decided to put it into a ziploc baggie full of lentils & rice . . . My daughter suggested I do this to wick out any residual moisture. After a few days I tried the power button again . . . still nothing.

I connected the USB cable to the power adapter and the battery icon lit up with a red hairline and the was the lightning bolt was on indicating that the battery was charging.

To make a long story short, everything seemed to be working . . . and then yesterday the camera freaked !! First the display was dropping lines and turning blue and green and red . . . and then it turned red and stayed red . . . kaput or so I thought, put the iPod back into the baggie overnight and the camera came to life with a somewhat limited capacity.

If you are out there on the edge, here are some pics using the “challenged” camera:

Use some of the “darkroom” apps available . . . get edge-y . . .

Lumi app

Great little app from the inkodye people . . .

Some things you should know before you jump into the water . . . First you’ll be working with a SQUARE format, so if you import an image from yer camera roll, make sure you allow for Lumi’s square format. The Lumi cam shoots in a square format.

Number two: the app will crash . . . if yer image has too much data it will overload the app and it will crash . . . remember, this ain’t no super computer at Lawrence Livermore, so . . .

The inkjet process for generating a negative is a bit too . . . too “process-y” for me, so I would opt for spending $7 and get an 12″ X 12″ film neg from the Lumi people.

If you want posterized images or halftone dots . . . u-u-uh . . . well . . .

This is a nice app for beginners in alternative photo processing – if you’ve never messed with color separated imagery or been in a REAL darkroom this is your ticket to freedom and fame in the social media fast lane . . .

Here’s some pics:

Totem . . .

2 layers of visual information – white paint Christian graffiti praising the lord and totemic cardboard cut-out imagery . . .

The cardboard images will be placed on the actual graffiti and re-photographed at a later date.

iPhone 6 Plus . . .

why have I decided to get an iPhone 6 Plus ? Simple . . . I like my iPod Touch 5G and I don’t think that Apple is going to make an iPod Touch 6G . . . I want the 8 megapixel
camera . . . with all the “darkroom” apps available, anyone who likes where technology has taken photography, the iPhone 6 Plus is the next logical step . . .

iPod Touch 5G . . .

Looks like I’ll be getting the new iPhone 6 Plus . . . I like the size, the 8 megapixel cam . . . looks like it will be a real workhorse.

H’ray !!

Moonrise . . .

No this isn’t Cortez NM . . . it’s the moon over the White Mountains in Owens Valley after a day of cloudbursts when the Weather Channel said there was going to be a “zero” chance of rain . . . it looked like there was some snow flurry activity over Little Egypt SW of Bishop up toward Coyote Valley as well . . . but what do I know . . .

Anyway, as I was driving south from Bishop this evening I saw the giant moon rising up and stopped to shoot a few pics . . . here’s one:

Original pic was in color but I wanted black and white . . . low light contributed to the grainy image. I used the Photojojo tele lens on my iPod Touch . . .
