Keepin’ it real

I love my neighbors’ xmas lights and I liked them last evening against the backdrop of the evening sky a half hour or so after sunset. Problem? LpNet’s monster twuk is parked in front and today was “garbage” day so all of his carts were also out there.

It’s not an ideal pic but it is what it is. This is my nice but not fancy neighborhood and I love it here. I don’t aspire to be anything more than a lowly iPhoneographer so I don’t really care. I decided shortly after I got my first iPhone that one device was enough, especially one that fit in my pocketses. I actually think the iPhone cameras are pretty good, even that first one I bought as an early adopter back in 2007.

Twitter play:

Me when the iPhone was first announced but not on sale yet: Someday I may need a phone / camera / GPS (etc. etc. etc.) but it probably won’t be the iPhone.

Me after spending about five minutes with an iPhone at the Apple store: GIMME!

Financial suicide ensued.

It was kinda fun being an early adopter. I remember when my community college prof mentioned iPhones and I whipped mine out. His eyes bugged out. “Can I hold it?” Same kind of thing when I started my job. Of course that little bit of envy did not last long because pretty soon everybody had one or an Android or whatever.

Getting porterzoomized tonight and so good night.

    I never wanted a smart phone nor to use my phone as a camera; both those things have gone by the wayside. And that’s OK.

    I got my first iPhone in 2009 and absolutely fell in love. I’ve had a few since then (currently the X). And I’m now giving serious but careful thought about the new 13 Pro. I LOVE new technology!
