you're never too experienced to make a rookie move

150dollabeer
You see that beer? Yup, that's a $150 pint.
On Monday, with two successful Austin photo shoots, the sight of a zillion pregnant Mexican bats and many tacos under our belts, we headed south to San Antonio to catch our plane home. We had, like, some extra time. So we thought we'd squeeze in one more round of enchiladas & cervezas for the road.
We cut it too close. We showed up just 20 minutes before the plane was leaving, and our seats were gone. Surcharged but fortified, we left later.
fiesta flags, San Antonio
San Antonio fiesta flags on the way out. Oh that Hipstamatic. I can stop any time. I just don't want to.
Next post: knitting and real camera photos.
Maybe.

Damn! Those Hipstamatic shots are great. I don't want an I-Phone, but I DO want the Hipstamatic!!!

Love that San Antonio shot with the flags!

Caro said...

Bwah! Well, at least you got one more proper Texas meal. Can't wait to see the results of the Austin shoot! (I know I might have to wait quite a while)

Kirsten said...

Ha Ha! I'm sure that beer was totally worth the $150.
I'm seeing too many fun Hipstamatic shots gotta download that ap.

Ouch! I did something like that once in San Antonio. Now I am neurotic about getting to the airport extra early, drives Guy crazy. LOVE the Hipstamatic.

so it seems they're creating an iPhone app to replicate the Hipstamatic "experience" you're so addicted to: http://www.hipstamatic.com/

OOPS. glad you made it home eventually.

Must admit that your post gave made me doubletake at first. I read the sentance as "... zillion pregnant Mexican bats with many tacos under their belts..."

Say WHAT? I must go get some caffeine.

Mine is an iPhone app. Or was that meant to be sardonic ?
It'd be waaaaay too much work to shoot old funky film or poaroids, process, transfer, scan & upload. :-)

jo said...

just downloaded the app myself after seeing your shots - think i'm in love :)

You bought more than a $150 beer, you bought $150 worth of great story.

Kay said...

I think I am finally going to get an iPhone just for the hipstamatic.

U R evil woman! Because even if I hipsta my heart out, I won't get those fotos.

Bullwinkle said...

Everyone's gotta do it. At least once. Otherwise, where's the adventure and the story???

Excellent photos!

Carole Knits said...

Bummer. But I bet it was worth it!

Turtle said...

ah, that sucks! but it's a good story for you now!

Birdsong said...

Too bad about the surcharge... obviously, you weren't done with Texas yet. Hipstamatic looks like fun:)

gayle said...

Oops.
But for enchiladas & cervezas? Totally worth it.

craftivore said...

By the look on his face, I would say that beer was worth every dollar.

Have you tried Swankolab yet? It's also made by the Hipstamatic folks.
