Spring Break through iPhone Polaroids

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:

Robotic Lady Liberty “waver” outside a tax prep store in Joplin, Missouri

The skyline of Dallas, Big D.  I kind of miss it.  But I don’t miss its traffic…which I was sitting in when I took this photo….

Easter brunch at Whataburger.  Oh how I love Whataburger. Contrary to their marketing slogan, there is NOT one near me.  But,  I make a point to stop there every single time I go back to Texas.

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.
