city daily photo theme day - tranquility



I snapped this 
walking 
uptown
 from the 72nd Street Subway 
one day a week or two ago 
I used the 
Hipstamatic app on my iPhone 
my iPhone 
has become 
my
 point&shoot
 but
 with effects! 

 for this shot 
I used 
Libatique 73 lens and Big Up film
this month's theme is
tranquility
for a city dweller 
tranquility is not the same as for a suburbanite 
to me
this moment
was
tranquil

  1. Great observation in both the photo opportunity and that tranquility can mean different things to different people. It's all about the moment.

  2. Yep, agree. For me delapidation and rust are tranquil. But I played to the crowd and went with water anyways.

  3. It's a nice shot, Daryl. Do you have one of those Oliclips for you iPhone? Sorry, I am probably misspelling the name of that, but I noticed a few other bloggers that use that lens.

  4. The color of that balloon is tranquil (to me). Good point about tranquility being in the eye of the beholder.

  11. How curious. Who tethered the balloon there, and why? So many possible stories ...
