Hold the phone. NYC through the lens of my HTC

When it comes to photography I’m the wheezy kid who tries hard but ends up walking half way through the race. I am passionate – yes. I am skilled – um would love to be. I am dedicated – er have you tried lugging a SLR with two lenses around for long??

So recently I came home from a business trip to London via NYC. I did bust out the Canon for an afternoon or so but the beguiling allures of the West Village, the down right hipster-ness of Williamsburg and the cachet of the Meatpacking district meant that I wanted to lug a large camera and accessories around about as much as wearing a I heart Chechnya t-shirt outside the Kremlin.


So you now know that I pretty much just snapped away with my Android phone. For the gallery below I have processed many, not all, with a super amazing app called Pixlr-o-matic. It’s free and available for both Android & iPhone. A word of warning – there is every chance that you will become addicted.

Early Adopters look away now!

I recently saw a compelling documentary on Google^ and a key ‘take out’ for me was their constant thirst for innovation. I am quite certain that Larry & Sergei would have coniptions if they ever had the misfortune to encounter my cord entanglement catastrophy. (Above)

When I packed up tonight I looked down and was myself aghast at the scene of entwined hell beneath me. It looked like three Octopuses fighting over spaghetti! It certainly filled a hitherto so-called Early Adopter with pangs of guilt. Will I have to hand in my membership? Will I need to rescind my HTC 4g for an iPhone3? First rule of Early Adopters Club don’t talk about Early Adopters Club…oh and don’t have sixteen tons of cabling on your desk!

Hmmm perhaps I can acquire a Livescribe pen and rejoin the club! A pen so advanced that it makes paper very 2010 (search Livescribe for my related post)

^ OK so reasonably interesting. Filled in an hour or so on a flight at least
