I think there are some awesome things that can be done with light trails, whether from cars in traffic, steel wool spinning, or just plain-old fire twirlers. But I had no idea whether it would work with an iPhone, and I hadn’t seen any information about it (or hadn’t looked, either one). So when I […]
The weather today was beautiful, and it may very well have (finally) been the first day post-winter! For most of the day, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and it was warm enough to ride my bike without a jacket of any kind. As late afternoon came along, a few white clouds appeared here and […]
Well guys, I didn’t win. But it sure was uplifting to know that I was named one of just five finalists for this photo contest.
