On the Parkway Saturday with Bernie Coveney, shooting some outdoor shots for his upcoming CD. While putting equipment away at Rockey Knob overlook some tourists asked Bernie to play.
Heading back to Arlington Sunday for our alternate week in the city when I looked in the rear view mirror and saw an awesome sight of clouds outlined by the sun. Pulling over on I-66 Eastbound on a busy Sunday afternoon ain't the brightest idea in the world but I headed for the shoulder and pulled my camera out of the bag in the back of the Wrangler. The halo outline that had caught my attention in the rear view was gone by the time I got stopped but the sky was still awesome. Mother nature always has a few tricks up her sleeve.

The way cellphone cameras are advancing, it is only a matter of time before photojournalists start using cameras in their wireless phones to record events.
My latest toy is a Treo 700W Smartphone from Verizon, a Palm Treo running Windows Mobile version 5 with a 1.3 megapixel camera as part of the package. Besides being a phone, portable email device and PDA, the Treo can capture decent photos for web use or publication, like the one above featuring David St. Lawrence showing off photos of his and Gretchen's cats to Amy when we met them for lunch Wednesday at Cafe del Sol.
The Treo also captures video, which is something I will experiment with later.
