If you came to this image via my other photography site, 24gotham.com, welcome. I do hope you will stroll around and subscribe to see new images as they are posted. iPhoneography NYC is soley devoted to images taken and processed with my iPhone.
This shot was taken on 13th Street near 7th Avenue. It looks so old timey until you realize the bulb in the light is a compact florescent. It was first shot with ToyCamera, and then post processed in Tiffin PhotoFX.
Part of the point behind doing this blog is the simple fact that I can take a shot and then just email it directly from my phone. This is the first test shot to see how it works. Clearly it does work. Now if I can just figure out how to add tags in the email.
While sitting in the middle of formerly traffic bound Broadway (and now filled with chairs, tables, and planters) alongside the Flatiron a few weeks ago, I took a moment to look up and see the Flatiron from a different angle.
Last month while walking home, I past by the nearly completed One Jackson Square on Greenwich Street and 8th Avenue. The sky was such an incredible blue, and the few puffy clouds a nice orangy-pink. When I posted this shot on flickr, I hadn't intended it to go on my blog... But after the warm response on my flickr, and it later being posted on Curbed, I decided it was definitely blog worthy.
In most of America the public pay phone is nearly a thing of the past... But not in Manhattan... They are everywhere... Nobody uses them much, but they rake in a lot of money by being plastered with advertisements. So long as the revenue stream from advertising comes in, they phones will remain. This one found at 7th Avenue and 12th Street. The receiver was hanging when I walked past.
As I find myself taking photos of the world around me with my iPhone nearly every day, I felt I needed a platform specifically for this new medium.
I began Photoblogging at the beginning of 2005 (currently at24gotham.com), and I remain devoted to taking great pictures of New York City with my D80. However, I found I wanted a place to showcase just the images taken with my iPhone... A place where I can post new images on the fly within minutes of taking them. Where I don't have to play by any preconceived rules... Where I can use the various apps to my hearts desire... So, here is where I will keep em coming. I do hope you will subscribe to my page and return often.
When I got my first iPhone in July of 2007, I wasn't terribly impressed with the camera... And truthfully, it wasn't much. However, when the Apps store opened in 2008, everything changed, and suddenly a new world of imagery began to take shape on my iPhone. I upgraded to the 3GS and unless otherwise noted, all images here are from the 3GS.
