To a Stranger
Day 366 - and still at it. We all knew, deep down, that I would be still doing this.
Last March I touted the iPhone app this is PhotoSwap. It's still an ok kind of thing, but the fun wore off soon. Thank g-d it was free, but then almost all of my apps are. I'm pretty cheap.
Quick recap on the app: you take a pic and hit 'send' and it goes to some other random iPhone user and you get one back. It is unclear to me if the you pic you get comes back from the user who gets yours. I suppose it does not matter that much. They/You can identify themselves/yourself as much or as little as they/you chose - along with a map of their general vicinity.
There is also the option to 'reply' to someone who has sent you a pic and vice versa.
Oh, it should be noted, like my Twitter account, my PhotoSwap account shamelessly advertises my blog URL. What can I say - I'm a BlogWhore. I gotta have the hits, man!
So, like I said, I got a bit bored with the app and only bring it out now and again to play with - so who knows what person saw whatever I sent (a half eaten bagel? a clementine sitting on my office desk?), and when. But when I logged onto it on Thursday, I had a message/reply waiting for me. ...and it was this picture:
How cool was that ????
I don't know if he/she is reading this now, but more power to them. More power to me.
You guys know I love my readers - so it is always fun to get more, even if I have to cheapen myself to do it. ...and I'm clearly not above doing that.
