Someone discovered his cameraphone had a built-in sepia filter the other day.

Le spiffy! Something about that sepia tone and the bricks almost makes it look like it could be Paris or Marseilles.

Hey, wasn't there a foreign film about that last one, starring Argile De Matrices D'Andrew?

Oh, wait. That was "Le Fairlane de Ford."

I think Boston is the most European of all American cities, especially around Beacon Hill (where these shots were taken) and the North End -- with the added bonus that you don't usually have to dodge dog droppings on the sidewalk.

The Falcon was adorable and if I could I would have given it a great big hug. The seats inside looked more comfortable than the bicycle seat, too, so I think it gets more use.

You may be the best camera phone photographer ever.

I'm beginning to sincerely believe that is true.

best photos I've ever seen with a cameraphone, including those snazzy ones that my ex-b/f, Mr Steve, used to take.

Aw, why thank you both for such kind words!

My eventual goal by the way is to be discovered by Lili Taylor and given a show at the Whitney, and I'm going to have some homeless friends crash the reception and then we'll have a big party at the local gay strip club and it'll be great. It'd also mean having to make out in a voting booth with Christina Ricci, but I think I'm willing to make the necessary sacrifices for my art.

Fried chicken in sepiatone would worry me, potentially. Those ain't heat lamps!

What kind of camera do you have?! I've been frantically punching at mine to see if I too have a hidden sepia filter.

The EXIF data sez it's an Audiovox CDM-8915VM. Virgin Mobile calls it the Snapper. I've really been surprised with what I've gotten out of this little thing. I was all set to buy a Canon Powershot S3 this spring, but realized I was actually having more fun working with the cameraphone's limitations, rather than using something that'd let me do whatever I wanted.

Those turned out gorgeous!

This is the Lomo craze I was mentioning. Really just a random-snapshots-as-art thing. But the embracing of suboptimal optics reminds me a bit of your shots, or what I like to to call the spatchs/cameraphone/movement.
