the road to petaluma : fenced in

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 13 September 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

So, the varied sights are flying passed the window as we're heading down the road to Petaluma. I pull out my iphone, set it to the Hipstamatic app, and start clicking away. I'm happily occupied, like a little kid with her nosed pressed to the window, for the whole trip !! :-)
"The Hipstamatic for iPhone is an application that brings back the look, feel, unpredictable beauty, and fun of plastic toy cameras from the past". I don't know the source of this quote, but it was brought to me by Ronnie. Thanks R. :-)

Beautiful flashes of colour and the composition is fab (especially considering that you were moving!).

I really love those hints and I'm trying my best to duplicate this effect on PS. A funny and delightful work indeed. I really love it.

Nice, have to try that some time. I shot my Nikon with one had and drive with the other. Hoping I'm in focus.

The hipstamatic app is really funky!. I've got it but never used it because I would prefer it to provide a "Unfiidled with" pic as well as the one that comes after the Hipsta processing, that way if the PP isn't to my liking , I can go back to the original

13 Sep 2011 11:24am

@CElliottUK: doesn't seem to provide that feature. Once you choose the particular Hipsta lens and film type you're committed. :-)

It does have a nostalgic feel doesn't it?

Nice composition with the white rail fence really standing out here and leading one's eyes through this composition. Great DoF.

The flat summer on the countryside and covers it with deep colors under the sun.
After the barrier, it is the freedom.

Looks like the road to Heaven to me ....Just a wonderful shot, here and I really like the vignetted upper corners to give this that "old timey travel look ;-) This is really cool....Petaluma is cool, or at least it used to be when I went there...As always, a beautiful image, Dulcie;-)

A happy, colorful landscape with the grazing cattle.

I remember the rich folks near the highway had fences built like this instead of treated
tree posts and barbed wire. Wonderful light and bright colors bring this beauty to life.

Thanks for your comment on mine. I really like this one, we're using the same hipsta settings I think.
