Throwback Thursday Photo Retrospective (2 of 12)

Below are more old photos from my vintage Instagram account now long since deleted. The first photo (top left) was shot on the grounds of Jerpoint Abbey in Thomastown, Ireland. The photo was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, not an iPhone. I later used the iPhone Instagram app, imported the photo, and applied one of Instagrams filters. The… Continue reading

Throwback Thursday Photo Retrospective (1 of 12)

When Instragram was first created, it was a really cool app. I loved it even though it had some really significant limitations in file size and image aspect ratio (only 1:1). The filters and the frames were fun. I was taking tons of horrible photos with my phone (because the phone cameras were so incredibly limited back in the day)… Continue reading

Oh, The Thrill of It All!

You know how it goes: Small things break, get messed up, or otherwise need a bit of attention. But they aren’t that important in the moment. You think, “I’ll fix it when I get around to it.” Well, over the past year or two or three, little things on my blog, small yet annoying things, have broken and needed a… Continue reading

After hours have been spent over numerous attempts to get the plugin slickr flickr to work properly, I finally nailed it! Lest I forget, here is the required code (the entirety of which must be enclosed in square brackets which is not done here or the plugin would try to execute the code which is missing my api_key and full… Continue reading

No. No More. I’m Fed Up!

I loathe corporate America trying to own American culture. But I double loathe it when they try to own my contributions to culture and do not allow me to opt out! I will not have it. I’ve been a huge fan of Instagram, ever since it first arrived on the tech scene. I love that app. You have seen me… Continue reading

PhotoForge2, Hmmm…

Want to stylize your photos? Yesterday I frothed at the mouth over kitCam, which is both a photo and a video app with numerous sharing possibilities including FTP. kitCam introduced me to PhotoForge2, which allows further manipulation of the photos. This image, from Thursday’s “video shoot,” shows a very quick possibility from PhotoForge2. I’m actually on a search to replace… Continue reading

New Tweetbot Feature Produces Peter!

Tweetbot just released an update that allows you to see the tweets from people near your current location. I thought that might be interesting and tried it out. In the timeline appeared this picture of a local man, Peter, and his dog making their appearance known with a musical number down by the Sausalito ferry. Since I had posted about… Continue reading

Gated Entry

After 2 days of fog, I shot this with my little iPhone up at Cavallo Point this afternoon. The walk up the steep hill in the gutsy, gusty, cool breeze/wind was tremendously invigorating. I absolutely feast on the cool air from the Pacific Ocean. The beauty of the bay area just feeds my soul.… Continue reading

And What a Birthday It Was

Thanks, everyone, for the calls, voicemails, Facebook messages, emails, birthday cards and gifts wishing me a happy birthday! Who ever would have thought I would live to be this old?!! The birthday celebration rituals began the day before my birthday with dinner at the restaurant, Paul K. As a starter, I highly recommend the seafood soup of the day––a delicious… Continue reading
