..Lo-Mob and Photoshop life..

It's getting cold here!
I am so sorry for the lack of updates , I have many many things to do recently (finding a job in 2011 for instance haha) and while they pile up in my TO DO list, this blog has been quite neglected, my Flash games as well.
Still, I wish to have more free time for my online stuffs! Cross fingers

By the way, now that I am a fully iPhone addict, I would like to share with you a new and wonderful app I discovered recently, called Lo-Mob.
This app gives a retro look on the pictures and contains a lot of vintage filters, sorted by films and camera types.

Here is a quick try

Giving a vintage feel to photos is so easy! I remember I used to struggle on Photoshop with lots of panels (hue/saturation, color balance, etc.) and now this simple app creates photos that fake classic old cameras. It is hard to believe that the initial pic is taken by a start-of-the-art smartphone (except if for the resolution of course).

The result can be stunning , and photos can be published on Flickr. For example I found Frau Finn's work and I just love it:

But beware of Photoshop illusions haha!?  うひゃあー ビックリ

..Tuileries Garden..

*yawn* The weather is so great now!
Warm and sunny, I just love this period of the year.
Hong Kong was definitly too hot and humid for me, I like to see how seasons change.

So I went to Tuileries Garden (Jardin des Tuileries) this afternoon with one of my good friends. Photos from my iPhone :
Tuileries Gardenって? Wikipedia attack:
The Tuileries Garden (French: Jardin des Tuileries, IPA: [ʒaʁdɛ̃ de tɥilʁi]) is a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Created by Marie de Medicis as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was first opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution. In the 19th and 20th century, it was the place where Parisians celebrated, met, promenaded, and relaxed.
Just sitting on the grass, chatting (and gossiping...)

By the way, do you remember the series I used to write on my old blog
 イリエのファッション情報 (Irie's fashion news)!
So I am proud to resume this project!
What's new in my closet... 6th edition:
Theme: Casual student
  1. Khaki green sweater from United Colors of Benetton [USA]
    I usually never wear green clothes, and this is certainly the only green sweater I have! I must admit this khaki green color is perfect for this Autumn. I see magazines and shops promoting brown... but that's over-classical!
  2. Light brown wool cardigan from Mango [ESP]
    Because sweater + trousers combinaiton is way too basic, you always need to layer something on the outfit.
  3. Brown leather belt
    Adding a belt to your outfit makes your look looks more elaborated at once.
  4. Skinny jeans from Juicy Girl [HK]
    I bought it in Hong Kong and I love it! Look how the end tip of the jeans goes on my ankle: that is the trend recently for jeans!
  5. School bag from プリウリ [JP]
    It is a typical Japanese school bag but I use it for carrying my laptop in a discrete way (I don't write anymore on paper).
  6. Light brown ballerina shoes from Minnelli [IT]
One last view on the Eiffel Tower sunset ...
