For some reason, I always forget that I have this cool little application on my iPhone called “Shake It Photo” . Basically, it turns your iPhone’s camera into an old-school Polaroid-style camera and it only costs $0.99! You take the photo like you normally would on your iPhone and the image is then cropped to a square and the colors are messed with. Even cooler, it shows up undeveloped on the screen and you get to shake your phone like you would a Polaroid to help it develop faster. The end product actually looks pretty authentic right down to the realistic border.
Anyway, I decided way too late into my Spring Break trip down to Dallas that I wanted to document the trip with iPhone Polaroids. I wish I would have done it the whole trip, but I was probably too brain dead from all the driving to remember. Here are a few of the favorites that I did get. These are all straight out of the phone… Sometimes it is just fun to play:
I am always amazed at how big Dallas’ overpasses are. This is the “High Five” where 75 and 635 intersect. It is apparently the first 5-layered interchange in Dallas and the highest ramp is 120 feet in the air. They were building this monstrosity when I was a Junior in high school and I first saw it when I went down to visit SMU. I don’t think they completely finished it until my Senior year in COLLEGE at SMU.
