iPhone / Photography

iPhones, locations, and the dreaded curse of… Windows

My sister asked me for help, and I am at a loss for answers. Their friend took an iPhone to Europe, and took a lot of photos as they traveled. When they view and edit the photos on the iPhone, the phone displays the embedded geolocation information (in the form of latitude / longitude) with an approximation of the nearest city of town – Bergen, Norway, as an example.

Running in 2010: How I got here

I spent 2009 in Iraq. I ran some during the first part of the year, but not enough, and certainly not many long runs. As the mid point of the year approached, and as I got ready to return home to my family in Hawaii, I decided that I’d crank up my miles to the point where I’d be able to run a half-marathon without dying. My R&R arrived, I flew to Hawaii, and while there, I did some running. But after my R&R, I returned to Iraq and a new, very stressful job. Long hours, crazy hours. So,

A Monday Morning Run

Off from work, I headed out for a short run today. After loading my iPod and Garmin, I opted at the last minute to grab a camera as I headed out the door. And I’m glad I did. I ended up taking close to a hundred photos over the 50 or so minutes it took to run the 5.25 miles. Photos are on Flickr, here — only a couple of them are restricted to family / friends. I also fired up Google Earth and made a file about the run — and embedded links to some of the photos.

Culture: Rims

Since getting back to America, I have been going through some culture shock. One serious issue? Rims. They’re on everything. Seriously, that’s a Rolls Royce sporting giant, out of control rims. I’m taking a lot of photos of a lot of cars with crazy rims. Feel free to follow along, here. As the summer grows longer, so too will the list of cars with rims that I photograph.
