Finally picked the new toy up today. It was painful knowing it was locked up in the post office and lonely all weekend. Of course, because of my work schedule all I can do is drool over it and shoot the occasional odd object in the office.
I’ve been working on a logo rather than just a signature on my photos. I’ve had the idea in my head for a long time but finally got around to putting it into bits and bytes. I used this photo during the design process and it has one of the variations of my logo that I worked on. While I settled on something a little different than this I’m sure the current one will change yet again.
Some folks choose to coast through life. What fun is that? I for one will continue to take the unbeaten path, forging my own way. Does this mean I’m always off course? Possibly, but it’s so much fun I don’t mind at all.
What is it?
Hmmm. Well it’s inside a sandwich bag with what appear to be a bunch of dead maggots. Whatever it is, it must be pretty bad to kill all those maggots.
This makes two posts in a row that include photos not taken with the Blackberry Tour. The whole point of this blog was the postings to be done on the Tour, including photos.
It’s not for a lack of trying. Friday night I attempted to post from the Tour but all of a sudden blogger.com doesn’t recognize my phone even though I’ve posted from it before. Oh bother.
Anyway, if you haven’t figured it out by now, that’s the back side of the Tour itself enjoying a nice rice bath for the day. I just happened across this post on the Make blog earlier today suprisingly finding myself in need of just such advice.
I knew to do this using dessicant bags but hadn’t ever thought about using rice when I’m out of dessicant. Well, today my cluts of a 12 year old son managed to dump a 40 ounce cup of water onto the Tour. “Don’t worry Dad,” he said, “your phone isn’t wet,” as he went about cleaning up the water. A couple of minutes later I reached for my Tour and much to my surprise it was completely soaked. After a quick and fruitless search for dessicant it was rice to the rescue.
I captured these on my way home late Friday night. It was a great way to close a very long week. No, these weren’t taken with the Tour, but they are mobile.
