MY IPHONE SHOT OF THE WEEK - “BLOODY BED BUG INFESTED TELEVISION SET ON BLUE CONCRETE”
In an effort to keep this blog a bit more active I’ve decided to start reblogging one of my iPhone pictures every week. I think every Sunday or Monday I’ll pick my favorite shot from the previous seven days and give you folks the exclusive scoop into the totally true story behind the picture. Let’s get started…
So Vicki and I were limping to the store to get band aids for our bloody feet when we stumbled upon this vintage television set on Dobbin Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I immediately picked it up to carry home when Vicki (a.k.a. Bunko the Buzzkill) reminded me that anything found on the street in Brooklyn definitely probably has Bed Bugs. So I spent the next ten minutes, bleeding mind you, weighing the pros and cons of Bed Bugs versus the Awesome Television Set and wondering what Vicki meant when she said “definitely probably”. Ultimately those Bed Bug Bastards won and I’m still bitter about it.
If you’re curious as to why our feet were bleeding, here’s the deal…
We were playing a fun little game Vicki made up called Die Hard. The rules are simple… we put on wife beaters and run around our apartment on broken glass yelling “Yippie Kay Yay Mother F-er!!!”. The first person to quit looses. Aside from the broken glass part it’s a pretty cool game.
IPHONEOSAURUS REX IS BACK FROM EXTINCTION
And if you would like to see some boring photos straight from my iPhone to Tumblr (no apps or post processing are used) please feel free follow along here.
I should also mention that iPhoneosaurus Rex would probably still be extinct if it were not for the persuasive SHUTTER BLUES. This shot of a spilt cup of coffee on dirty snow is for you Mister Blues. Anyone not following the talented and mysterious SHUTTER BLUES should best get on it now.
a.k.a. My new Tumblr of just some boring photos I take with my iPhone
So I finally decided to start taking some pictures with my iphone and I’m putting them all on a mean new tumblr called iphoneosaurus rex. In kind of new territory for me, all photos are going to be of “stuff” that I simply “see” around me. Also, all photos will be taken with my default iPhone 4 camera with absolutely zero post processing.
I should mention that this site is heavily influenced by another Tumblr that I really admire called iphonepic. He is a true pioneer and champion of iphone photography. If you are not following him yet you best get on it.
Anyway, if you are bored and feel like looking at some boring pictures of boring stuff feel free to check out iphoneosaurus rex.
Have a happy weekend!
