I can’t make this photo again because while I was still in bed this morning my wife rearranged the plants and removed a shelf.
I can’t make this same photo again for several reasons. One, the light changes every day and the time I arrive at school every day is slightly different. Two, the Hipstamatic application applies its filter differently every time you use it, and Three, unless you arrive at the right time, there’s always some surly-looking smoker there with a fag hanging out of his mouth.
“What’s up with using Hipstamic these days?” asks the 0-1 readers of this blog. Well, every day is either murderously hot, bone-shakingly windy, or both at the same time. I don’t want to waste film on throwaway photos like the above or carry around a camera in the heat, so the iPhone satisfies the urge to be making pictures. Maybe I’ll get a nice overcast day this weekend with a temperature less than 30 and no wind.
