I Waited An Hour for These Photos to "Develop". Here's Why.I installed [another] photo app on my iPhone. I know I know, they're a dime a dozen these days but this one is different. It actually slows you down instead of instantly sharing your moments. Why?To focus on actually being in the moment.The app is called 1 Hour Photo and it's free from software developer Nevercenter.The premise is simple: you take photos through the app and will wait exactly an hour later to see your "developed" monochrome images. Think of it exactly like 1 hour film processing: take your photos without ever seeing it before it's developed from your local lab.As a monochrome shooter especially on Instagram, this is just perfect for me.Last night was my good friend's birthday and we ate at a new restaurant [at least for me] called Limón Rotisserie in SF's Mission district and it definitely was a charmer. And instead of being heads down editing the images and sharing the photos instantly, it allowed me to just take photos as needed and let me enjoy the company with great food that's right in front of me.This morning, I saw that 1 Hour Photo's app notified me that my photos were done and was able to review them and inevitably, share them.I'm learning it's actually fun to have to wait and see your moments that you lived moments earlier.It's the anti-instant gratification/sharing photo app.
