3.18.10 Pic theme: More phone camera pics!

We got a lot of rain last week. A LOT! So much that we had to use this giant cauldron and a crane to get all the water out of the basement! 

Ok, that's a lie. But it did rain a lot!

3.12.10 Pic post theme: Fun with photoshop

I am slightly hesitant to put this out there, but I'm just vain enough to toss caution to the wind despite the obvious flaws. :)

3.11.10 Pic Theme: Cell Phone Photography

As further evidence that I am always late to the party, I've just discovered an emerging trend in cell phone photography. Of course this has been going on for years, but how would I know? I couldn't tell you if my last phone even had a camera... anyway, it was by pure selfish folly after upgrading to a phone that could take a picture worth looking at that I thought, 
"Hmmm, I wonder if anyone else is making cool photographs with their phone?"

The answer is yes. A thousand and thousand times yes! The movement has as many enthusiasts as my beloved toy camera and Lensbaby does. I can't say that I am jumping ship just yet, but let's face it. We all have our phones on us all the time and even though I try to never leave the house without my camera bag, there are times when my DSLR isn't within reach. Here are a few images of such instances.

On my wish list: Canon L series coffee thermos

How do you say badass? I say it, "Canon L series Coffee Thermos"! 
Canon had these gems made up for a special promo to hand out to Olympic press photographers. 
I hope and pray they will release these to the general public... or at least loyal Canon users (hint hint). In the mean time I'll keep my eye on eBay and if any of you out there know where I can get my hands on one LET ME KNOW!

3.2.10 Pic post theme: Philadelphia's Magic Gardens

I spent a great day with my girlfriend and her nephews in Philadelphia this past Sunday.
The day started at Philadelphia's Magic Gardens and ended at Sweet Lucy's Smokehouse 
for some delicious BBQ. I recommend everyone check out both places if you get the chance.
