A Surprise Every Day: Shaking Up July With Hipstamatic (week 5)

Another beautiful week has come and gone here in the Pacific Northwest and I’m happy to say we spent every minute possible enjoying outdoor living and a bit of travel.  Sunday afternoon Ryan and I hiked to the lovely waterfall from yesterday’s post along with my aunt, sister and her family and Monday this was our view from the train window on our trip home.  Tuesday’s image a small section of some public art outside the Lynnwood Senior Center and Wednesday’s photo is the amazing evening sun from the rooftop garden of our local library.

After all that sunshine I thought Thursday would be a great time to capture the Blue Moon and apparently Hipstamatic agreed framing the image with this purple/blue border.  Friday was “too hot to handle” inside our house so we packed up dinner to-go and brought everything down to the beach.  This view is from our walk back to the car.  Saturday’s photo is of my try-at-home box of Warby Parker sunglasses.  If you haven’t heard of this company they specialize in quality eye wear with a retro-hipster edge.  Knowing it’s hard to select frames online they ship a box of your 5 choices free of charge to your home for a 5 day trial period and for every frame purchased a pair is distributed to someone in need.  Today I brought one of my 5 up to Wallace Falls and plan to work my way through the box during our staycation.

Today’s “Shake It Up” post will be my last here until August 9th but I won’t be vacationing from all my social media accounts.  If you’d like to follow our adventures through the beaches, forests and mountains of Washington State I’ll be dusting off my neglected Instagram account and increasing postings on Facebook. Everyone’s welcome to come by for a visit, peek over our shoulders and hike the trails with us!

Each photo was taken with my iPhone 6 using Hipstamatic’s “shake to randomize” function then posted without any additional editing. If you like a particular combination and want to try it at home just click on the image to see the lens and filter used.  For variety I continue to add new lenses and filters so if you want to try Hipstamatic but are unsure how to start let me know and I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

  1. I sure do need sunglasses this summer, it’s too damn bright but I need the prescription ones, guess I got a bit of searching to do 🙂

    Beautiful shots..! 🙂


  2. Exquisite sunset image. Too hot too handle, but what a beautiful image. I hope you all enjoyed dinner by the beach. What a great first class view. Happy summer 🙂


  3. I hope you will enjoy some time away! Sounds so nice to have that opportunity. Your photos, as always, are just great. Glad you’ll be dusting off your Instagram! 🙂
