Southern California Moments: Go mobile! In review

When we launched “Go mobile!” week, we originally thought it would be completely different from our earlier film week challenge. Looking through the photos, however, it struck me that the irony of mobile photography is how hard it tries to replicate the look and feel of film.

Five of our seven selected photos have artificial borders placed around them to mimic a film frame. Many other mobile photo apps can reproduce the look of specific films or camera formats, even if you don’t place a frame around the photo. The most portable, immediate form of photography seeks to emulate what’s now the slowest and most deliberate.

What do you think?
