In 2012 I replaced my trusty antique iPhone 1 with a brand-spanking-new, still-in-the-box antique iPhone 1. I wanted another for its outdated camera. I was in the midst of a project and the newer Apple phones had a better camera which would render images inconsistent with that body of work.

Much to my chagrin, the new antique iPhone’s camera had a major problem. As you can see from this example selfie, the pictures all came out pink and blue; as if they had been developed in a Pepto Bismol bath. Not attractive at all – so the camera app was relegated to the last page on the phone. You know: the back of the bus where you keep the stock tracker, the iTunes store and other useless apps Apple won’t let you delete.

It wasn’t until this year that I discovered the Pepto Bismol effect applies only to bright sunny days. It was overcast when I, a sucker for sticker graffiti, walked past the above image and discovered that on dull “concrete sky” days the malfunction goes all Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. The above photograph has not been retouched, only resized. Click it to be dazzled by the raw full resolution file.

I have spent the last few months making up for the two years I lost ignoring the über-psychedelic camera in my pocket.

Much more to come. Stay tuned.
