Having my iPhone 5 was one of the reasons I decided to launch a sort of photoblog. Just before we took a trip to the United States in 2013, Linda and I bought each this magnificent piece of technology which keeps us so far from reality sometimes. Although it can be so negative on many subjects, the usability of this creative tool inspired me to start whether a tumblr, a dedicated wordpress blog, or something alike. Being submerged by all these apps available on the apple market, I quickly fell in love with the simplicity and technical possibilities of the VSCO app. With all the inspiring things I was discovering in America I made my request to the VSCO community to get a profile/grid page. When the confirmation came after a few days it was with honor that I would regularly feed my profile page.
It’s of course the non cheesy effects like you used to find on instagram and other apps that make the VSCO grid so amazing. You clearly have a lot of control of what you do instead of choosing between a dozen of over-burned or comic presets. Another awesome thing about VSCO grid is the recognition you can get by being selected for their showcase of images selected from around the globe. I was lucky a dozen of times to get such an awarded mail and be curated on their VSCO Selects, like recently with this picture of a cretan door.
After now almost two years, my grid is really nicely filled up with pictured from all the places I’ve been and my everyday life. It’s also a good collection of images for us to use on some personal or Kinlake projects. These few images are part of our latest cretan trip, an inspiring place we always look forward to go to.
