I recently bought myself an iPad .. ohhh the wonderful feeling that comes with buying a toy you don't need and (the money you spent on it) could have fed a tribe of Russian orphans for a month. I downloaded the instagram app and have joined the radical movement of taking very ordinary photos and making them look cute by 'instagraming' them. If you're not familiar with the appy phenomenon, it gives the photo a 70s, Polaroid look, kinda like the snaps from your family albums. Picture your Dad with a big shit-eating grin on his face in short shorts holding a can of VB on the porch with Labby the family mutt - but without Dad and instead you've taken a photo of a wooden bamboo spoon with bits of dried rice stuck to it. Amazing huh! These photos are from my recent ski/drive/gaining weight holiday in Victoria.
