Playing around with Hipstamatic and drinking coffee

Yesterday morning I made some coffee in my Chemex and sat down on the couch to enjoy it. Cassidy was out with some friends for the morning so I sat quietly and enjoyed the coffee as I looked outside. I ended up playing around with Hipstamatic and snapped these shots of the coffee table in front of me. I’ve used Hipstamatic since I got my iPhone 3G. It is pretty fun to have used an app for so long and to have seen how it has progressed over the years. I’m starting to really like the newest incarnation and taking photos in various formats like 16:9 and other non-square shapes.

It was a nice distraction from thinking about the historically absurd day we are sure to have tomorrow in the United States. Good luck everyone.

Black and white coffee mugs

Cassidy and I stopped at one of our favorite places, General Porpoise, for some tasty donuts. Cassidy got a glass of champagne and I got a coffee. It was a couple of weeks ago and the weather was nice. General Porpoise is in an old warehouse space, so it has a garage door for the front of the cafe. On a nice day like this one was they opened it up and we sat at the bar along the door. As we sat and ate our donuts I snapped these couple of quick shots with Hipstamatic. They are fun and remind me of how much I like black and white photography.
