Back again from a couple of weeks off. I spent one week in NY. I enjoyed the city from 2 different perspectives. From the eyes of someone who had never seen it (!), Ester, my wife. And from the eyes of someone who spent 3 years there as is obviously in love with it, Carlos. I can only thank them both for letting me rediscover such an amazing place.
I’m sharing just a couple of shots:
I also took the opportunity to change my broken iPhone, by the way. And I did something unusual. I downgraded it. I changed my iPhone 6 Plus for an iPhone SE (yes, the small one that resembles the iPhone 5 with upgraded internals.) As the guy in the Apple Store said: “You don’t see this jump very often.” You know I want to limit the exposure to tech, so it felt like the right move. So far (just 2 weeks) I love it, but it´s hard to know if it is just because is the last new thing I have or I genuinely do prefer it. Anyway, I’m back to using my phone one handed. I’m back to not noticing it in my pocket. The iPhone Plus looks absurdly big now. I’m surprised about the number of things you do with your iPhone where the size of the screen is no big deal: listening to music, reading WhatsApp’s, or even email triage. For those where the screen is a key factor (reading a book or writing) I use my iPad (which I use constantly and is clearly the main reason why I can downgrade safely to a smaller phone.) The Lincoln Center and restaurant shots up there were taken with my iPhone (and edited in it with VSCO, grain is artificial.)
I love holding this phone, which tells me the industrial design is beyond that of the last iPhones. It has become a small treasure for me and I’ve discarded completely the idea of buying an iPhone X (saving in the process around 700€.)
Anyway, I keep working on solosequenosenada.es and this week a new cell is open, under the title night. It may be as dark (and perhaps as beautiful) as the title suggests.
Enjoy the week and we send you our best regards. From “Damusha & Estef”.
