The Vacation

It’s been over a month since I returned from Scotland and have discovered that I am past the point of being able to blog the pictures effectively.  So here are the highlights.  

Toronto: Day 3

I am sorry to say I am too tired to post about my day – the trip to Niagara Falls.  But I managed to upload the pictures, if not edit them.  Sorry about those people that got into my view.  I believe if you… Continue Reading “Toronto: Day 3”

The Official Photo Album – Hawaii 2010

I am home; had a horrid trip back.  Haven’t decided if that is worth writing about yet.  These are the pictures, if anyone cares to see the whole thing.  They really look better in full screen.  Couldn’t much be bothered to edit, so feel… Continue Reading “The Official Photo Album – Hawaii 2010”

Photography in Jackson Square

Tourist Pictures

Monday night Must See TV has messed me up so that I couldn’t even pretend to do homework. But I managed to talk the Blackberry into coughing up the pictures I took at St Bonaventure yesterday: I actually like these because they catch… Continue Reading “Tourist Pictures”

The Alex Collection

I was at my brother, Scott’s house today. My niece, Ainslie, aged three months, is just starting to dig the infant toys. So I was trying to get a decent shot on the camera phone: I was having a hard time because, you know,… Continue Reading “The Alex Collection”

The Camera Phone

Google has been linking to articles from “WikiHow”, the Wikipedia of “How to” stuff. Today they had “How to Take a Good Picture on Your Camera Phone”, which I clearly need. So here is my biggest problem: “Keep your hand steady as you press… Continue Reading “The Camera Phone”

Back from San Antonio

And I have decided that the Blackberry is good for the quick shots, but I just can’t use it for real. For example, the Convention Center has a big hallway with a bunch of statues of distinguished Texans. I learned that Eisenhower was pretty… Continue Reading “Back from San Antonio”
