iPhone Photography Awards: The Prize is . . . Vapor?

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

The deadline for entries was late April ’08; no winner has been announced on the site, and no one from the site answers emails. This wouldn’t be that big a deal if the entrants hadn’t paid a fee for each photo submitted. Someone spammed several Flickr iPhone groups about the contest early this spring. Last [...]

I Apologize For Neglecting You, Treasured Readers

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

If I wasn’t heading to Big Sur this weekend, I’d spend both days watching a wonderful collection of progressive rock and jazz clips here. Last Monday I spent the day at Butano State Park. Some photos appear here.

Back To The Woods

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

Three New Flickr Photos

…from last night’s trek halfway up San Bruno Mountain. These illustrate the ongoing learning process after the arrival of a Hoya circular polarizing filter, which you can be sure I will be overusing in many future photo sessions.
