Chandelier Time

So I like chandeliers. Saw this one in a funky downtown shop and had to get the shot. Taken with my iPhone using Hipstamatic, with the  John S. lens and Rock BW-11 film, the latter of which is available through November 2011 only as part of the Nashville Hipstapak. This chandelier graces the ceiling at Gladiola Girls in Boone, NC. I lived there for 5 years and used to work for the Chamber of Commerce. Great town.

This post is also the first time I’ve used the iOS WordPress app to publish. I’m here on the PC doing some post-editing now, but I gotta say, it’s pretty cool to upload something in the moment from your phone and have it already there in your posts. The app really does make it easy to capture a photo, peck out a couple of thoughts, then get it up on your blog. I’m adding more deets, related articles and tags post-publish, since the app only adds the “social media” tag. But if you’re not rocking the free WordPress app on your iPhone or iPad, I do recommend you give it a try.

Are you a Hipstamatic photographer? What’s been your experience with the WordPress app? Is there a go-to subject like chandeliers you find yourself taking pictures of repeatedly? Let us hear from you in the comments!
