Here are some gritty city snaps from my latest business trip adventure. Spending about four hours on trains and buses to get somewhere and another four hours to get back is only bearable when I spend time snapping everything.

Shot with my iPhone 8 and edited in Adobe Photoshop. Kidding. I don’t do Apples and I’m not a fan of Adobe either. Shoot me. Actually, shot with my Android-running Lenovo mobile, which is as badass as any Apple, and edited in Snapseed, which is, hands down, the best phone photo editing app around.

    1. Me too! It’s to broken that it almost looks like it should be this way.

  2. Good grunge, Mara. And Chesterfield ciggys, not seen those in years here!

    1. We have all kinds of cigarette brands here. Especially the cheap ones are popular. I smoke a Greek brand, super light, though it’ll probably give me the same cancer as any other brand.

      1. Fabulous! I used to have a pair of chunky black heels with a pointed toe and I added black lace instead of shoelaces. Loved them.

    1. I have so many boot and shoe selfies by now that I don’t know what to do about them. It’s a pretty useless collection.

      1. Start an album. You could make a slide show for us all to enjoy in our spare time 🙂

        1. Oh dear, that would be so boring! Also, it would be obvious that I only have a few pairs of shoes that I wear all the time…

  5. I have the same habit of snapping (and snapseeding) absolutely everything when I’m (not behind the wheel) in transit. It’s the ONLY activity that makes travel bearable. I’m still posting my heavily filtered iPad snaps from Wednesday’s adventure to Instagram. 🙂 It’s fun to make the most mundane things imaginable look cool, isn’t it? Great captures, Mara! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Amy! I’m pleased I’m not the only person who has this habit on snapping and snapseeding on the go – even when there is absolutely nothing interesting to take pictures of. Your photos from the trip look great btw!
