Lovin’ the Photos Memories: Gold Beach @Myers Creek

Here’s another Photos memory Apple’s AI created from some of my iPhone photos and video. It just picks these and puts this all together and then shares it with me on my phone. I still find it amazing! This video features scenes of the ocean here around Meyers Creek1 along the southern Oregon coast. https://photos.smugmug.com/IPhoneography/IPhone-Memories/i-HDZ2hNg/0/39e6accb/1280/2021101412490549-6053879475786295023-Gold%20Beach%20-%20Aug%2017%2C%202020-1280.mp4 For the growing collection of… Continue reading

Throwback Thursday Photo Retrospective (3 of 12)

Below are more old photos from my vintage Instagram account now long since deleted. The top left photo is of the dining room in a wonderful hotel in which we stayed in San Francisco when we were house hunting there, knowing that Steve was being transferred to the city. When walking north along the strand, around El Segundo along the… Continue reading

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

After the Storm

I love weather! We just had a storm system, which the weather forecasts referred to as an “atmospheric river,” blow in from the ocean over the past two days. We got 2.71″ of rain over the two day period – enough to actually lower the risk of fire from the dry summer and exceed our monthly rainfall average. Most of… Continue reading

At the Shore over the Years

I’ve really grown to love the short movie memories Photos artificial intelligence creates from the tens of thousands of photos I’ve shot on my iPhones through the years. Their AI algorithms process through all of the photos, identify what the photo is, pick photos on a theme, and assembles them automatically. The algorithms do a surprisingly good job of picking… Continue reading

West Coast Fires Produce Astounding Sunset Photos

Make no mistake, the west coast fires are an epic tragedy. I am horrified by the destruction they cause. People lose everything. Some lose their lives. We have had several days in the past few weeks of extremely poor air quality. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that at times the air could even be filled with carcinogens. When the… Continue reading
