My beautiful morning

Sure it was a return to work and all but I gotta say:

Lovely morning 1

Lovely morning 2

Lovely morning 3

Lovely morning 4

That made the walk in from the bus stop more than slightly worth it. Happy New Year indeed, once more.

Meanwhile, some recent random iPhone photos

Starting with an SF trip ringer, the rest being from down here:

Foggy in SF

Tree against a dusty sunset

Fogbound in OC

A lovely dawn

Meantime, I’m joining the video world a bit…

…kinda:

Just a little something shot from my balcony on this gray June afternoon. There might be more. My extremely minimal YouTube channel is here.

February 2009’s last sunset


And there you go. I wish I had my camera with me the other night when the moon and Venus were in conjunction — I knew the iPhone camera wouldn’t be good enough, really — but this makes up for it.

Vapor trails in a late February morning

The switch to Daylight Savings will actually prevent shots like these for a little while but that’s why I’m snapping them now as I can.

Soon after this I snapped two others around campus for a bit of a dawn triptych, kinda:

Sun hitting Aldrich Hall

Godray action

An early December morning


It’s a familiar view but the colors were just right, so a photo had to be taken…

Dawn, just

Scenes like this are why I don’t mind getting up early, really. Though that said I rather enjoy sleeping in on the weekends when the mood is right.

One heck of a sunset

You know, I’m thinking I’m glad I got the iPhone just for the kind of photos I can randomly take with it.

It was a great day for photos

This first one was taken while over on the other side of campus in the early morning, coming back from the medical plaza. A couple of minutes later I took this one:

And much later in the day, coming home from work:

Gotta say again, the iPhone can really take some good shots if you know how to work with it…

Monday morning at work

Taken on the fly off my iPhone. Go figure! But the mood was there and it came out right…
