Here I am being dwarfed by the huge fountains in Rome almost 36 years ago now

It's been awhile since I posted a #FlashbackFriday photo. Here I am being dwarfed by the huge fountains in Rome almost 36 years ago now.

It's been awhile since I posted a "Flashback Friday" photo. Here I am being dwarfed by the huge fountains in Rome almost 36 years ago now.

This photo was posted to Instagram as for "Flashback Friday" (which as the name implies, is an opportunity to pull out a photo from the past to share). This photo was taken by my Mom using a 110 point & click film camera. It was post processed on the iPhone using the 100 Cameras in 1 - Stuck In Customs (App Store link) by Trey Ratcliff @TreyRatcliff which I was playing around with for this image. It looks a bit better on the smaller screen of the iPhone than here on the website.

Instagram on Your Mac with InstaDesk! (PhotoDesk)

InstaDesk

Being an avid Instagram user, I was excited to learn that there is a new client app for the social photo sharing service on the Mac. A third party app, called InstaDesk [UPDATE: Now titled] PhotoDesk - for Instagram (App Store link).

Since Instagram opened their API to the public, there have been several new options for third party Instagram clients or web interfaces. For example, on the iPad there is InfinitGallery - browse Instagram photos - InfinitApps (App Store link) and Flipboard: Your Social News Magazine - Flipboard Inc. (App Store link) which will allow you to access your Instagram account. There are several web interfaces available as well, my favorite has to be Webstagram.

With the exception of posting photos and applying filters, you can basically do everything you can do on the official Instagram app (currently only available for the iOS) and more using Instagram API. Again, the best example of implementing the API is probably Webstagram that I have seen so far. As good as Webstagram may be though, it is still a website, not an application.

Raising the Flag

Raising the Flag

I took this photo on the iPhone 4 using the camera app HDR Fusion - Cogitap Software (App Store link) and then applied the Lo-Fi filter in Instagram which I used to share the photo.

This is a statue of the iconic WWII image of American soldiers raising the flag at the War Memorial in Eisenhower Park.
