Awesome Parents

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

My Parents Were AwesomeTHIS is cute – a site called My Parents Were Awesome , where people post pictures of their parents when they were young.

The site says that “before the fanny packs and Andrea Bocelli concerts, your parents (and grandparents) were once free-wheeling, fashion-forward, and super awesome”.

Well worth checking out, and it’s easy to submit your own parents’ image – so long as they were once awesome, of course. Thanks to @MichaelRpdx on twitter for pointing it out.

iPhone Images

CrowdBOING Boing has featured the Japanese ‘iPhonegrapher’ Koichi Mitsui who walks around Tokyo taking pictures with his iPhone 3GS. “The iPhone has a single-focus lens with no zoom, and this simplicity keeps me devoted to only composition and the perfect photo opp,” he explains.

Some of the results are mixed, but generally there’s some lovely work here. Mitsui’s work shows that with a bit of effort some good results can still be had with the iPhone, which aside from its focus limitations is also a lower resolution than many other mobile phone cameras.
