Experimenting with my new gadget
With impeccable timing my mobile phone decided to die on me just as I became eligible for an upgrade this week. Having seen Kevin’s identical phone die in the same way some months back I recognised the signs and quickly backed up all my photos and contacts from it on Friday. The one upside of this sudden failure was that it gave me the excuse I needed to upgrade to an iPhone this morning –something I’ve been hankering after for some time (much to Kevin’s disappointment – he wanted to get one first!).
The rest of today has been occupied with a rehearsal so when I returned home this evening I still had to take my photo for the day. I tried taking a shot of the phone itself but failed to capture one I liked so I decided instead to use the phone’s camera to shoot my favourite subject of choice – Gracie! This must be the lowest resolution and least sharp shot I’ve ever posted on Photoblog but I think it nicely captures Gracie’s relaxed demeanour while lounging on the sofa and, considering the duff light I took it in, I think the camera acquitted itself quite well. It’s not up to DSLR standards but at least I can go to bed knowing I’ve managed to post something for today!
