Fisheye Black and White 


I like the fisheye lens from Olloclip.  

These pictures were taken by me at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum with the Hipstamatic app, and the Olloclip fisheye lens on an iPhone 6.

Mt Zion Cemetry 


Across the road from the Mt. Zion AME church is an ancient cemetery. Many of the grave markers are long gone. There are a lot of graves there. You can see dips in the ground where the graves sank.

Companion Parrot


This is Einstein.  He has put up with me for several years.

Sorry about the quality of the photos. He isn’t the most cooperative model when it comes to posing and lighting.

He is also quite mischievous.

Doctor Doctor


Mr. M.D.
Now can you tell me, tell me, tell me,
What’s ailin’ me?”

My throat
oh my throat
Thursday morning I woke up and couldn’t swallow without great pain. Coughing was an act of personal torture. Talking was totally out. I had to go into work at noon so I picked up some throat numbing lozenges while I was out. I gargled with warm salt water. I drank pickle juice.
Friday morning I was a bit better but it was still difficult to swallow. With the help of the lozenges, tea with garlic, lemon, ginger, and honey, aspirins, and popsicles it improved during the day. I thought I was on the road to recovery.
Saturday morning dispelled that illusion. Saturday was the worst morning of all. Tea with garlic, ginger, honey and lemon, gargling with warm salt water, aspirins, and numbing lozenges weren’t doing the trick. I had to have medical attention. The sooner the better. At 7am I headed towards an urgent care facility. On the way I passed a closer one and turned around. They weren’t open yet so I went next door to Ground Up Coffee and Smoothies for a cappuccino.


I knew they were good because I’d been there before. The warm coffee soothed my throat and the two shots of espresso boosted my energy level dramatically. I finished the cappuccino and headed back to the clinic.

It took a while because I was a new patient but they got around to me in 20 minutes or so.   The nurse called my name and hustled me off to examine room 1.


She took my temperature (99.8), blood pressure (140/90), oxygen level (98), and pulse (102). She swabbed my throat. I almost puked. Then she scurried away with her sample.


Pretty soon the doctor came along. He was friendly, out going, non-judgmental, and seemed to be a nice guy. I wish my GP was so cool. He was unhappy with the blood pressure and we talked about that for a while. When I mentioned the cappuccino, he went ‘OH’. And told me I shouldn’t drink those. He listened to my heart and lungs, looked in my throat, looked in my ears. He prescribed an antibiotic and a decongestant and labeled it strep throat. He said a nurse would be along with a steroid shot and my prescription.

It wasn’t long before she showed up and said drop your pants.
OH NO! Not a butt shot!
Maybe I should have worn underwear?
She gave me the shot and prescription slip and sent me on my way.


Think how much better my medical care would have been if I hadn’t been taking pictures, texting, and playing on facebook with my cell phone. roflmao

So what did I do next?  I dropped off my prescriptions at the pharmacy next door and went back to the coffee shop for another cappuccino (sorry doc).  I had to do something while I waited. Right?
After the shot and one dose of each medication I do feel a lot better. I was even able to eat soft food tonight.  The real test will be in the morning. Keep your fingers crossed.

Peace, love, and light

Fotog Play v1.2


I enjoy using my iPhone 4 for experimental photography.  These are some of my recent shots.

These experiments help me see new directions I could take with photography.

A Drive in the Woods


Christy, Jesse, and I drove out to Shoemakers Cave a couple days ago
I took this panorama using the DMD app on a iPhone.


What’s in My Camera Bag? Part 1


This is a two part deal. The first blog will be about the software in my ‘camera bag’. Actually, the software is on my computer and on my iPhone.

For photography

On an iPhone 4

IncrediBooth is like having a little photo booth in my pocket. This is an app I play with occasionally.
Camera+ is a nice app I originally downloaded for the focus and exposure controls. There are other nice features I use: grid, the standard set of sharing options, the lightbox, image stabilization, and the digital zoom. If I’m not using Hipstamatic to take the picture I’m probably using Camera+.
Hipstamatic provides a wide variety of films and lenses. It is currently my favorite app for taking black and white photos.


Instagram I’m sure you all know about Instagram.
DMD is an easy to use panorama app. Here is an example.


Pro HDR creates full-resolution HDR images with just a single tap! I like this app, but often forget to use it.
Fisheye Pro, an entertaining special effects app.


Slit-Scan, another entertaining special effects app. These are full size train cars. The app creates this illusion.

Snapseed is the app I primarily use for any editing I do to pictures on the iPhone.
Diptic Of all the collage apps I’ve tried, this is definitely my favorite.

The pictures in the Diptic image above were taken with ToonCamera.

ToonCamera, The Coolest Cartoon Video App You’ve Never Noticed: The name says it all. This fun app lets me transform regular pictures into comic style pictures in real time. It will also record comic style videos.
Perfectly Clear is an easy to use photo correction app that I sometimes forget is on my phone.

On the computer
CS3 – It isn’t the latest and greatest version but it has more capabilities than I need and use. I don’t have any plans to move over to Adobe’s new cloud offering.

For videos
On an iPhone 4

Super 8 – This is the app I am using for my second a day for a year project.
iMovie I use this to make HD movies and trailers. There are 8 unique themes, each with its own set of titles, transitions, and music.
Action Movie is a fun, special effects app.
Intro Designer creates professional style intros and credits for videos. There are 21 templates to chose from.
Youtube – Occasionally I will upload a video from the iPhone to Youtube.

On the computer
Windows Movie Maker is the video editor I use most on the pc. It is simple to use and for my skill level it has all the tools I need.
Movavi Video Editor is more advanced video editor. Maybe one day I’ll have the time and the patience to learn and use all the features. I just don’t make enough videos now to make it worth while.
