Recent Trip to the Bay Area

Around theGolden Gate Bridge I just spent a couple of weeks in San Francisco, one of my favorite cities in the US. Naturally I shot a lot of photos around the Golden Gate and thought I would share some of them on my blog. Every day began with some serious fog, which of course I absolutely love! I also got… Continue reading

iOS Camera Apps and Lens Comparisons

The Current State of iPhonography

Some of you endured my anguished decision-making process over whether or not to buy the new, absurdly over-priced, iPhone X. Frankly I don’t give a hoot about the communications aspects of a smartphone. I care about the photographs and video the phone’s camera can create. And when I look back at how drastically far smartphone camera technology has come, I’m… Continue reading
