Instagram Finally Coming to Android

Instagram is Coming to Android

I am pretty excited about this.  Instagram is finally coming to the Android platform.  I’ve been an Android user for the past 3 years, and have watched all along as really cool apps have been released only for iOS.  Android has some cool, and very useful apps that I use daily, and also enjoy.  Perhaps it’s just a case of the grass being greener on the other side of then fence.   I’ve seen my fellow photographer friends constantly posting Instagram photos.  I wanted it too!

It was announced at SXSW on Sunday that Instagram will finally be coming out for Android.  It will share photos to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr among others.

Did You Order Your iPad Yet?

The New Apple iPad

I am not too excited about the new model of iPad announced at today’s Apple event. Maybe you heard about it?

Last summer I purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 during my “Not a fan of Apple” phase. I didn’t like the closed system Apple used, and yearned for the openness of Android. For the most part I have not been disappointed. My Android tablet has been stable, easy to use, and added to my productivity.

A New Start

Normally the end of the year is a time for reflection, and getting your ideas together for the coming year.  In my case having been laid up due to an injury for several months I am itching to change things up.  This is just a sample post in the spirit of Christmas as I get ready to redesign my site.  I took these photos on a trip to Colonial Willaimsburg last December.  I am unable to make the trek this year to which I am disappointed but thought that I would post these shots to get a little jolly!

As for changing things- this blog will be undergoing a lot of changes in the next month or so – both on the back end and front end.  Hopefully you will be patient as I get this running again.  I am looking forward to more shooting, editing, posting some “How I did this” videos and whatever else comes to mind.

Absentee Blogger

Hi All – I know.  I have been an absentee blogger.  I’ve been consumed with some family matters recently, but am looking forward to getting back to shooting, and experimenting in the digital darkroom.  I have been shooting at a few Philles games I have attended recently, but nothing beyond that.  Tonight I’ll be shooting down at Citizen’s Bank Park as the Phillies face off vs the Boston Red Sox, and am hoping that Cliff Lee can make it 5 wins in a row for him.

Later this week I am hoping to get back into some regular posting with some articles I have been cooking for a while on how I process in Lightroom, and some more HDR goodness.  I am also going to post some photos of some old Kodak Brownie cameras a friend recently found in going through an attic.  It’s amazing to see how far technology has come.

Until then keep shooting!

A Night At Citizen’s Bank Park

News began to ripple through the concourse at Citizen’s Bank Park around 930p ET that Osama Bin Laden was dead.  People were trying to get a good cell signal to check the news, Twitter, or make a call to see what was happening.   By 11pm there had been 4 waves of cheers of “USA USA” in the stadium.  A couple behind home plate was wearing USA shirts. When they were put on the big screen the crowd went nuts. Fitting that New York won the game. I will put my standard motto about the Mets on hold for tonight. We’re all New Yorkers again.
