Schoolbus. Speaking of series, these yellow behemoths seem to be catching my eye lately. (I took this photo—and a number of others that have showed up here recently; the square "dirty" ones—with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. How is it that a few well-chosen filtering algorithms can turn a crappy little phone cam into a tool capable of producing surprisingly evocative images? Nostalgia is certainly a factor: the pictures look old—a fact that will presumably confuse future generations of viewers: "Seventies of Twenty-Tens?"—and old stuff tends to feel more artful and emotionally charged, but that's not the whole deal. Hmm...)
