This was meant to be a post with a story behind the photo, but it suddenly turned out to be a post with a story about the photo.
I found it in the deepest corner of my instagram and decided to share here. This trivial task failed when I realized that I don’t have a copy of the photo on my phone, and instagram doesn’t allow sharing with other websites. I looked for it further and found the post-processed copy in my vsco online profile, but not in the app. Sharing from the profile is also impossible, so the only way out was to take the original and edit it once again.
After half an hour of scrolling down my Google photos backup back to December 2013 I’ve managed to find it and thus finally bring it here.
The lesson for everyone here is: keep copies of you favourite mobile photos on you phones or backed up, so you don’t have to go through the editing process again.
As for the picture itself, I particularly like the man sitting next to the girls wondering what they are watching.
It seems to me that I’ll be uploading more photos made with my smartphone than any other camera, as life is running fast and I hardly have enough time to take pictures with my dslr.
Moreover, recently I bought a new smartphone, HTC One M8, and regardless of what is said about its 4 UltraPixel sensor, I think we have some good times together ahead.
The photo above was made with it by the way with further postproccessing in VSCOCam app. What do you think about it?
