Sometimes, it's a PhoneCam

I always try to keep at least one camera on me at all times, because invariably, if I don't have one, I'll find a photo opportunity! Still, there have been a few times in the recent past when I've stumbled upon something wonderful and only had my phone camera! Fortunately, the camera in my G1 Android phone is pretty nice for moments like this. Here are three of my favorite PhoneCam images.

This one begged me--a lover of all cool signs!--to take its photo! I was impressed with the sharp quality and vibrant neon colors of this little Googlephone Photo.

Location: Addison, Texas

This one comes from a random encounter on campus. I walked up to the priest and said, "May I please take your photo?" He said, "Why you would want to, I don't know, but ok!" Why would I want to!?!?!? Are you serious?

This is my terrier, Orson. He is hard to photograph, so even a decent cell phone picture makes me very happy! I LOVE HIM!

Location: On the furniture!

Even if you only have your cell phone at hand, get out there and shoot the world around you!

An Elusive Jackalope

Today I went to Fort Worth, and what did I find? A rare creature...the iconic Jackalope! It was an extremely hot day, but that didn't seem to deter this mighty animal (not quite a rabbit and not quite an antelope) from surveying his terrain! I just had to share these images right's not every day you can get a Jackalope to pose for a photo!

Laika Loves to Sunbathe!

My whippet, Laika, loves to sunbathe! She loves the heat so much that I have to monitor her when it's hot, to be sure she doesn't get burned! Here she is earlier this weekend, enjoying the 100+F heat of Texas in the summer!
