Retrocamera AKA the fustrated photographer

W Hotel Barcelona

I’ve been a late bloomer with all these smartphone/apps frenzy. I just got an Android mobile phone last April and since then I cannot remember how did I survive without Internet on the phone. It is kind of addictive, in fact I ended up removing the Facebook App like a month ago ( and ain’t missing you at all). I can live without knowing what other people are doing and without telling the world where I am ( I also deleted the Foursquare app). Ok, I lie, I still keep Twitter but it IS different…

Anyway, before I got into this cult I kind of secretly envied those Instagram people. Taking awesome shots just with a click from their phone. So I looked around and my friend Lili told me to download the Retrocamera app. I know there are better ones, but I just feel lazy downloading a new one.  It has different filters and after trying them all I’ve become a fan of one called Xolaroid, I guess you’ve already discovered the reason of that name…

Here are some of the shots I recently took as a fustrated photographer:

Some of them were taken during my visit to the Sagrada Familia Christmas Market. I remember abslutely loving the place when I was a kid. It was the time when I still believed in Santa and buying decorations for the house and Christmas Tree was one of the best times of the year. Now I just can see the commercial side of it all, thought I must confess I still like wandering around…

    • Sí tía! És que és un vici i realment no necessito el facebook al mòbil. Em vaig descarregar l’aplicació messenger per al missatges privats i amb això tinc més que suficient. Tenir el fb al mòbil només serveix per estar pendent del que fan els demés en comptes de centrar-te en els teus propis projectes i objectius, c’est fini!
