I bit the Apple and the Apple bit back


If you didn’t already know, I take a lot of photographs with my iPhone. I’ve written about iPhone apps and have been featured on Ovation TV. Now I have the honor of speaking at the Santa Monica Apple store on November 11, 2010 about the art of the iPhone and the process I go through when I make my pictures. I AM A GEEK! Yes, I know. But, it’s really fun to make iPhone pictures.

The Apple Store: Nov 11, Santa Monica, Third Street Promenade, 7 p.m.

Dartmouth Wanderings

My husband is from the Hanover area near Dartmouth College. His father was once a professor here. So, we’re visiting for Thanksgiving and I have been wandering around taking photos of the area.

One of the original Animal House – yeah from the movie. It’s easy to see how it made a great movie.

The other, not so light hearted, Skull and Bones frat house. You know, the evil lair where Presidents and chicken hawks and Dick Cheney’s and Bush’s learn destruction. Yet, aforementioned names learned so at Yale. It sits as a windowless gargoyle like creature on a bluff looming over the street. A black door with no door handle and no obvious way to gain entrance. Just like the frat really is, so is the building. Dark.

First Stop in Strange X

A long ride to a foreign land. rolling through the sky looking at landscapes filled with mountains and rivers I’ll never cross. it seems as if this continent must have been connected to California looking at her from this viewpoint. I see fire and smoke burning up the mountain side, clear skies and a spralling metropolis up ahead. the weather feels warm. looking forward to landing and skipping into the country as seemlessly as possible.

We arrive – wander through the city with the help of my iPhone GPS – easy. Japanese dinner with good company – see a new friend up ahead and invite her in.

4am tomorrow we are off again. To yet a new land.
