Too much tech-mology

I was reading Chelene's post about getting a Crackberry and it reminded me of taking the picture below.

This was taken on the same trip where we took the Empire State squiggle photo last September. We were loitering in Central Park, and the spousal unit decided to test out the special effects options on our camera.

There was a woman sitting the next bench down from us. She had her laptop out but I don't think she was using it. She was punching away at her Blackberry with her thumbs. And I'm not sure, but I think she might have had a regular cell phone too.

Me? I was happy to sit back and enjoy the scenery. It's hard to beat nature and people watching in Central Park.

I don't think I'll ever reach that point. I'm just not that dedicated to being dedicated. :)

That photo looks a little like rotoscoping.

Yeah, cool picture.

I love my crackberry!

I love berrys, but I hate crack.

It's about time cameras built in photoshop style filters. I don't see a single person in that picture.

I don't see a single person in that picture.

It's an option only on the most advanced models.

Chel - glad to hear that! I had to google rotoscoping but you're right - it does.

Thanks Tanya. The spousal unit takes great pictures.

Jim - with ya on the berries, but haven't tried crack.

Cat - I agree. I like the sepia option too. And - if you look at the full size picture, you'll see people in canoes on the lake.
