I have a new blog! And a contest!

Over the last little while you may have noticed I’ve become a bit iPad cent­ric. To be spe­cif­ic, I’ve been explor­ing using the iPad as a port­able, digit­al dark­room. Yes, the iPad does­n’t have a cam­era (for now, maybe in ver­sion 2?), but that should­n’t stop us from using it to manip­u­late images impor­ted into […]

Havin’ a ball

Some­times it great just to kick back and play ball with the dogs. Espe­cially when it’s ‑20 some­thing out­side and the little Daschunds just don’t enjoy play­ing out­side. Yes, they like their squeaky balls. As you can tell, I’ve been play­ing with pho­tos in my iPad Dark­room. This shot was taken with my Panason­ic FZ-30, […]

spent with fam­ily and friends. Many of us will grab our handy
cam­era-enabled data phones and snap price­less shots that we’ll want to
share, and keep for pos­ter­it…

My iPad steering wheel mount

I’ve writ­ten before about using the Joby Gor­illa Pod flex­ible tri­pod as an iPad desktop stand, but today was inspired to use it as a tem­por­ary steer­ing wheel mount while wait­ing to meet someone. Yes, due to an appoint­ment schedul­ing issue, I was 45 minutes early so had a bit of time on my hands. Damn […]
