iPhonetography: Salvador Dali

I enjoy Salvador Dali’s work, and this iPhone photo turned out to be some weird nexus of Dali-ness.  Hipstamatic offers a limited edition Salvador Dali expansion pack that has a special lens and film inspired by Dali’s paintings.  For the photo above, I used both the film and the lens in a rare non-random Hipstamatic shot.  I was just messing around with lens/film combinations and when I saw this particular shot, I immediately (albeit rather superficially) thought of the first Dali painting I had ever seen:  The Persistence of Memory:

I love this painting because it vividly portrays an alternate world that’s both familiar and alien, and terrifyingly hostile.  Of course my photograph doesn’t convey quite the same emotions, but it was a fun ride nonetheless.
