iOS Camera Apps and Lens Comparisons

I wondered to what extent camera apps create different images of the exact same composition when using my iPhone X camera hardware. Do they all call the same hardware functions and therefore produce the exact same image? Or, do app-specific incantations exist that voodoo the image into existence creating variance in the rendered images of the same compositions? Unsure, I… Continue reading

Trump. Treason. Traitor.

Impeach and Imprison. The news is utterly shocking. Even Fox News can not stomach Trumps servile puppetry to Putin. Impeach and Imprison! Trump, and all of the Russian agents and supporters he has employed in his administration need to be fired immediately. Impeach and Imprison!! I saw this bumper sticker on a truck at the restaurant last week. Impeach and… Continue reading

You Must See Comedian Hannah Gadsby’s Show: Nanette

I generally do not enjoy standup comedy. You see, I typically find the jokes a bit (or very) offensive1 or just not really funny. Often, the jokes are just low level humor. But, occasionally, I’ll hear a joke that’s actually hysterical. Netflix has been hosting a series of comedy specials. I’ve watched a few with mixed results. But the last… Continue reading

Waldo Has a Conversation with Mr. Squirrel

I’m posting this not so much because the photos are cute, but because all of the photos were shot with my iPhone X. I was inside the house with Waldo.

My SmugMug Labor Continues

I’ve been working ferociously uploading photos to SmugMug. In fact, at this point, I’ve uploaded over 13,000 photos–literally. The Re-Org I’m not sure I’m even halfway! I’m re-organizing the photos, and that takes a good bit of time. I’ve tried really, really hard not to edit any of the photos–an all but impossible task. I see a photo from even… Continue reading

You Must Have the Day One Journal App

While I’m in mood to rave about things that really work (Yesterday I just wrote my post about the Movi Freefly Personal Cinema Robot.), I want to talk about a piece of software I’ve been using since it first came out: the Day One Journal app. This is the most awesome journal software I’ve ever seen, and I’ve just about… Continue reading

Mōvi Freefly Personal Cinema Robot: An Update

So my Mōvi arrived. (You can read about what it is in my first post at this link.) Loving it! I waited until I went back to San Francisco to try it out because I have been feverishly busy sorting, sifting, tuning, and uploading thousands of photos to my new SmugMug website, and I literally mean thousands of them—over 13,000… Continue reading
