On a recent flight I got to playing around with the TiltShift iPhone app, a really fun way to do convert normal photos to something that looks like a miniature train set like model by a clever blur that imposes a false depth of field, and yanking up the saturation to make people and objects look more like little plastic figurines,.

I first learned it via
recedinghairline.co.uk/tutorials/fakemodel/

and have had fun experimenting with it

I took at the last baseball game I went to back in June of 2008 (gulp)–

which actually was one of the most exciting games I have ever seen (and I did see a lot of games in my youth at old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore)

There is also a great web tool for doing this as well
