I've been playing with the Android Vignette app recently and was lucky enough to stumble across a tractor that some workmen had left in Hyde Park.
Vignette is an alternative to the built-in Android camera app and it's five main strengths are: 1) it gives you more control over the basic settings; 2) it gives you a large number of preset effects, each of which can be tweaked; 3) you can add one of a fairly wide range of frames to your pictures; 4) you can add effects and frames to existing photos; 5) it's great for creating those old-fashioned looks like the Holga style or the Hipstamatic kind of look that seems to be becoming ubiquitous.
I used the basic camera settings with the Action Movie effect and the Filed Carrier frame for this photo.
And now Google have released Blogger for Android so now is a good time to test it out. I'll be posting more examples taken using Vignette and also Camera360 and RetroCam in this blog and on my Posterous blog.
