Broad Beach

2013.01 Gold Coast broad beach
I arrived in Gold Coast on Wednesday afternoon - but it took until Saturday afternoon to break away from work and get to the beach. I also just happened to have downloaded a new pak (Tintype) for my Hipstamatic iPhone apps (thanks to the recommendation of UrbanMuser at Mortal Muses.) Without a doubt, the best 99 cents I spent all week.

By the time I got to the beach the day had turned very cloudy - great for my very pale skin - but even more so for my photos. The gloomy weather coupled with the new pak made for some very moody photos.

I brought my regular camera with me to Australia, but didn't have it when I got to the beach on Saturday and to be honest, I had so much fun playing with my iPhone I may leave the camera in the hotel safe the rest of the trip.

These are great---and moody is a great adjective for them. I've been playing with some HDR apps. My new fave is HDR Foto.

I was in the Gold Coast several years ago and experienced cloudy and rainy weather while I was there too. Your pictures turned out much better than mine :)
I've got to try that app!

Oh, the beach...with bare feet. I AM jealous. I went yesterday wrapped in hat, gloves, scarf, etc and stayed only 20 min.
I haven't tried any aps yet-but I need to. I have a little list of suggestions here and all I have to do is go get them. I guess I'm dragging my heels. Looks like this one creates a textured look with a small focus. Hmmmm. Glad you've arrived safely and hope the schedule is such that you get some free time to enjoy the new surrounds.

I love Tintype, and you have shown so many beautiful reasons why, here. These are wonderful, Jamie!
Happy day to you.
