Stuck in traffic during an epic snowstorm, I fired up Hipstamatic and shot this using the Tinto 1884 Lens. The film I selected was C-Type Plate Film. Got home and further tweaked in PhotoFX.

Marlo was in the backseat, insisting that the rain was snow. I started to disagree and then decided that I could either argue with a three year-old or drive safely in 6-8 inches of snow while more was falling. I chose the latter. I’ve never seen worse snowstorm traffic in Salt Lake City.

We are safe, but I’m not looking forward to the school run traffic.

Affirmation: Slow down. Stick it in 4 dub and drive.

    I love it. Especially that hint of sideways cold wet stuff.

    It’s supposed to be a blustery 53-ish today in Los Angeles. I’m not sure whether I appreciate the perspective. :)

    Wow, so evocative. I love this!

    Luckily that guy has a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.

    I know nothing about Hipstamatic, but is it just me or do you have a kind of tilt-shift effect going on here? Pretty cool.

      Hipstamatic lets you pick a lens and film. These are simulations and in the above image, the lens/film combo has some funky blurs working, with a sharpened center area.

    That is a lovely shot. Thank you for doing what you do.

    Thanks, everybody.

    That tree is so creepy with its outstretched fingers and hulking, blurry body that it very nearly looks like an evil character in a Disney movie.

    Love this. A little bright, a little color.
