Flat Bottomed Clouds

June 29, 2005

I noticed that the clouds over Town Lake today were pretty low and flat on the bottom. It's as if they were descending and hit an invisible glass roof:

What's on my Desk?

October 31, 2004

Kyle challenged bloggers to take a spontaneous picture of their desk (no cleaning allowed) as a follow up to Pete's "What's in your Fridge?" challenge.

My desk is really my dining room table. Luckily, I had cleaned it earlier. Unluckily, it had already gotten cluttered again. Not as bad as earlier, though. Here ya go:

My Desk

There's a photo album on the corner I pulled out a little while ago to look for pictures of a trip to Florida in 1984. There are lots of blank CDs and stacks of music CDs. There's the latest Harry Potter book that I haven't read yet. There's my DVD and TiVo remotes. And there's a big glass of iced tea I'm almost finished with.

Make sure you check out Kyle's and Pete's desks, too. Now what's on your desk?

Moonset over the Gulf

October 7, 2004

Astronomy Picture of the Day - October 7, 2004 - I've never seen a moonset picture. This one over the Gulf of Mexico is beautiful. It's a long exposure, so the stars in constellation Scorpius are streaks. The lightning flash is fantastic, too.

My Keyring Camera

October 4, 2004

I got a little keyring camera a few weeks ago. They call it a keyring, but it's a necklace. It comes with a cord so you can wear it around your neck. And it's a thumb drive, too. You can drag any kind of file up to 128MB into it and transfer it to another computer.

I love it. It's not for professional photography, though. There are no manual controls (except for on and off). No focus or flash. There's nothing to tell you how much memory you've used. It doesn't take the sharpest pictures in the world. But it's right there when you need it (provided you remember you have it). It plugs right into the USB port and shows up in the file system... no special software or cables to transfer the pictures. All I have to do is drag the pictures from the camera to my hard drive.

I made a gallery of 15 of the pictures I've taken with it.

A Little Camera

September 5, 2004

I don't want a cell phone. I've considered getting one for a couple reasons, though... emergency phone calls and taking pictures. I do need one for emergency phone calls, but I know shopping for a cell phone that I'll (hopefully) never use will most certainly be a nightmare. All that calling plan stuff makes my head spin even when I'm not shopping for one.

I don't *need* one for taking pictures, but that makes it enticing. Having a tiny camera that I can carry around would be fun. I've also considered getting a PDA that takes pictures, but I don't think I'd use a PDA.

So when I saw something similar to this little camera over at So Very Posh, I was pretty excited. I ordered it yesterday. Of course, it means the emergency cell phone is not nearly as enticing, and I won't be prepared if I do have an emergency. But at least I'll be able to take pictures. smile
