Thats when it happened.
I was seriously considering spending the food budget on a Street Level membership when I read a tweet about the Hipstamatic app.....
The Hipstamatic was a little plastic 1982 released camera, created by
Bruce and Winston Dorbowski. The concept was to bring people a camera which costs less than the film. They based it on the little kodak instamatic and suddenly a legend was born. Tragically the two brothers were killed by a drunk driver in 1984, and it wasn't until 25 years later that their older brother Richard decided that their little idea should be remembered and made iconic in the Iphone app of the same name.
The nicest thing about the app is the most infuriating, its so easy!! all the blood sweat and tears over film, developing, darkroom all wiped out in a click. Also, I have downloaded all the app's extras and its totalled about £10...the Holga I was given alone - no film - retails at £50, film is £20 a pack average and then theres finding a developer!
So I thought I'd right my little story about this wonderful little app that every Iphone owner needs to try at least once
