Random Flickr Photo of the Day – April 24, 2014

It’s been a while since I did one of these. I have been slacking a lot on so many things, this blog included. Just too much ‘life’ stuff going on, but hopefully it will get settled soon enough.
But anyway, I give you this photo I took the other day with my HTC One M8, taken during my lunch hour. I tell you I am loving this phone so much. It’s so nice seeing beautiful colours again.

Random Flickr Photo of the Day – September 17, 2012

Some months ago, I got to visit Vancouver BC, up in the pacific northwest. What a beautiful place. Weather was nice and cool, despite the rain. We got to sta in West Vancouver, and a few blocks away was the Lonsdale Quay. A market place if you will on a pier, similar to South Street Seaport in NYC.

It was very early in the AM, as we were still in Eastern Standard time, and the place was still empty. While checking out the views, there was this Tug Boat, just floating, waiting to be put to work that day.

At this time, I was just sort of getting into Instagram, and I snapped a photo with my Motorola Droid Bionic. I really like how the shot came out, and with Instagram’s filters, it gave the shot some sort of personality.

I have reservations about Instagram still, as it makes us photographers that slave at post-processing, editing to make our shot(s) how we want it to look, look easy. Gives everyone else the idea that it’s not that complicated.

Anyway, that’s for another time and rant to be discussed ina future blog (maybe).

And a happy Monday to all!

Random Flickr Photo of the Day

Apologies for the absense of this post. I got caught up with work and a few other personal chores. But now back to our regularly scheduled randomness.

This was again, shot in 2009, when my buddy and I went all out and ate at Morimoto’s Restaurant in Philadelphia. I shot it from the entrance vestibule looking in, as it does have that ‘wow’ factor when you walk in. With changing colors on the lights, and a wavy, aquatic feel to the place. I just wish I didn’t include that thing in the middle, it sort of is a bit distracting, ok, it is distracting. Hopefully i’ll get another chance at dining there again. It is one of the best food experiences i’ve ever had, and I don’t even care I paid $250.00 for my half of the bill.
