1-Hour Photo App Makes You Wait For Your Selfies

1 Hour Photo

 

In this day and age, it’s all about instant gratification. From same-day delivery and courier service to instant messaging and email, you can now get what you want in as little time possible. Digital photography is another example. When people had to use film, pictures were shot few and far in between because film costs money, and it costs more money to get the roll developed. That’s in contrast to today, where people snap away whenever and wherever as their memory cards allow.

Changing the pace is the 1-Hour Photo app, which, as the name suggests, lets you view the photo that you’ve taken after one hour has passed. A black-and-white film emulation is applied to the photo, enhancing it and giving it that old-world feel. What the app aims to do, though, is keeping those moments special, without the distraction of reviewing photos as they’re being taken.

By the time people check out the shots, the moment will have been a memory, albeit one captured beautifully. You can download 1-Hour Photo on iTunes for free.

This Is What An Average Day Is Like for Severus Snape

Average Day for Severus Snape

Warning: If you haven’t read Harry Potter, then skip the text below and just look at the hilarious images of Severus Snape doing what he does on a regular basis. Which is, specifically, living a pretty normal and average life. 

If you read the entire Harry Potter series, then you already know that Severus Snape was one of the bravest characters in the book. At this point, you’ll also know that he died a hated man, because the truth about his true nature didn’t come out until the end of the great wizarding war.

But in an alternate universe where Severus Snape still lives, this is what his typical day would be like. Despite being a very powerful wizard, Snape does dishes, tries on ladies clothes, sunbathes, and works out on the treadmill. You can hit the break for more of what Snape does on an average day.
