A few photos from the family picnic on the 4th. All were captured using the iPod Touch 5G and  Hipstamatic app. Settings: Lens - Tinto 1884, Film - Black Keys B+W film.

I keep being drawn back to this lens/film combination.  It does have some of the qualities that toy camera and Lensbaby work has, and yet seems even more primal. For some reason these qualities touch me in a way that straight photography rarely does. I don't know why the film is called a B+W because there are always some areas of very desaturated color in the photo. I do like the end result, however I can do without the frame, and have been thinking about removing it from the images for  printing.
