Office Retro

I'm not sure, but I think Don Draper might be in that building.

Actually, this wonderfully retro office was used as an exterior location in Mad Men -- along with quite a few other spots around town. In the real world, Seven J. Investment like to keep more than just the building rooted in the 20th Century: The business is listed in the phone book, but I couldn't find a company web site.

(I continue my week of iPhone photos with this lomography shot taken with the MoreLomo app.)

LURVE the lavender and blue. Man, this is straight out of the 60's isn't it??

This really does look like a sixties photograph. Now you have convinced me to play around more with my iPhone.

I always admire that building. This is a perfect vision of it, right down to the retro mood.

That's because it's full of CIA operatives. Except instead of chasing terrorists, they're still after Commies.

LOL SanDiegoFarmgirl!!!

Where are all the other regulars? Dixie? Mister Earl? DBDubya?

This is very retro. I didn't know a phone could do photos like these. My phone is so old it will barely work as a phone.

Farmgirl, that is hilarious!

Who cares what I think: I'm amazed what my phone camera can do. It's actually a little frustrating because sometimes the iPhone shots are more interesting than the ones I take with my Nikon.

This is a fun series, though. I rarely do much processing of images other than standard cropping/saturation/contrast and an occasional median filter. iPhone apps are just too fun, though. And now that there is a decent Super 8 video app, it's like I'm 10 years old again running around the neighborhood with my best friend's Dad's Elmo Super 8 sound camera!

I should post some video over at my overflow blog sometime. I didn't live in South Pas in the 60s but I now have footage that looks like I did...
