took an iphone photo of taxi cabs on 42nd street
one rainy morning
the reflections 
of the headlights 
on the slick street
 the way 
the shop lights
 were popping
 in the still 
darkness of a morning
 without sun

 when i got my new iphone
i needed a case
 i went
 to my
 'go to' 
 to get the same case 
i had for the iphone 4 
it was no longer available
 none of the other artist designs 

 i remembered
 the very new york feel of the taxi photo
 it wasn't as wonderful as the memory
 played with it in topaz labs simplify
 the best fix
 in my opinion 
for photos
that weren't
 all that and a bag of chips

 hit it with a bit of buzzsim
 i don't know what 
buzzsim is 

i should google it 
(i did ... google has no idea what it means)

i do know 
i like the effect
 i liked 
what it did 
to the wet street
the lights

 has a very easy peasy way of uploading your photo
 a template
 for making it fit

 i ordered it
 a water tower shot in monochrome
 i would decide
 which one
 to would use 
when they arrived
  it took less time than expected 
tried out 
the water tower cover 
 the taxi 
the taxi
 the water color feel
 love the whole distortion

now i have
 an extra cover
 for an iphone 5
see the thingie on the right sidebar?
the follower counter?

i never expected to have even 5 followers 
445 really is something
i feel optimistic 
when my followers reach 450
a drawing will be held
i will be giving it away
stay tuned!
