Below is a short video in front of my place while it was lightly snowing in Tucson, Arizona. Though the snow where I was light compared to other parts of Tucson, AZ.
Here is a 30 second video that I did on September 10, 2014 at dusk. I’m looking west from a dock and you could barely see lights on the west side of the lake. I had one of my dogs with me and you could hear them shake in the background of the short video. There’s a little light coming from behind the mountain.
I’ve looked through some photographs that I’ve taken over the last couple of years looking for a series of photographs that I took with my iPhone or Canon camera while I was staying at Lake Tahoe. I took this series of photos back in the Fall of 2014, apparently, I didn’t back up my phone with these specific photos with my dogs while Lily Lake near Fallen Leaf Lake in the Sierra Nevada’s. They were on my phone that I wrecked in the fall of 2014 and couldn’t and wasn’t able to use the contents of the phone; let alone to erase the phone before I was able to send it in after I got the replacement phone. Another possibility is that I might have deleted these specific photo’s but I doubt that I did that.
I took these photos at the Japanese American Historical Park with some Flowering Cherry Trees and in the background and across the Willamette River in the Convention Center and Moda Center; along with the Steel Bridge. One of the photos is a little part of the east bank of the Willamette River and there is a part of Interstate 5 that runs on the east side of Portland. There is a map below the photographs of where I took these.
Hopefully during the next two weeks I would be sorting and possibly adding some photographs that I’ve taken the last two years on to this blog. I know in the past I would post photos and don’t and I’m planning to now. I doubt that I would be able to upload all the photo’s that I’ve taken over the two years. Granted, I doubt that I would be uploading all the photo’s – fraction of the photos would be uploaded.
There are a number of photo’s that I took with my phone which I’m planning to put up as a few regular posts on this site. I may do a sample gallery then link to the rest of the photos; but, I may not do this – depends on what I upload to the blog.
I’ll be posting something when I’m done sorting and editing the photos.
One thing that I want to do is to develop an iPhone App, the only thing is that I don’t what kind of App that I want to develop. Though, I could make an app for the sake of making one.
This is one of those times where I want to do something, so I can learn how to do something, but at the sometime I don’t have enough reason to start something – yet.
If I do develop an App I may post something, but doing something like this in not a priority at this time.
Here is some photo’s of a Sage field that is located on Fallen Leaf Road that is outside of South Lake Tahoe, CA., off of Route 89. This sage field is result of an controlled fire that happened about 6 to 8 years ago (not sure exactly when that controlled fire happened).
These photo’s were taken with my iPhone 5c on 13 November 2014. There might be a few that are blurry photos when I took them in the last 30 to 45 minutes of daylight of stated date.
Hope all of you would enjoy some photo’s until I get some more up on this site.
Here is a wide-angle shot of two ducks that I saw swimming towards the north end of Fallen Leaf Lake one evening. These two photos I took with an iPhone 5s.
Here is a close up of the same pair of Ducks as above on Fallen Leaf Lake.
Recently I signed up for Dropbox.com and I found it useful since I found a way to save and since saved photo’s off of my iPad. Then after doing that I found through the Apple discussion forums I found out that I could have use iPhoto that came with my Mac Laptop. It was a “discovery” or a “ah-ha” moment on my part that “should have” made about a year ago.
It’s when I have these “ah-ha” moments that I feel behind the time’s or I could have looked up on the web sooner but didn’t.
By using Dropbox, I found a work around to get pictures that I took on to my iPad. Even though I could sync picture’s with Aperture through iTunes and every time I do that I keep getting an error message about needing to delete pictures from my iPad. I have used the Photo Stream (from of iCloud) and have some saved photos already on my iPad, still iTunes wants to delete pictures that have been synced with iCloud. So, in the end I found a way to get pictures on to my iPad without the possibility deleting any pictures on the iPad.
Though I signed up at a time that I’m unable to pay for the monthly fee for Dropbox. I’ve been looking to use the Amazon Cloud Drive and use that for the rest of my photos since I would be able to pay (I like to pay on a yearly basis) for the size I need. I know I could use blank DVDs to back up my pictures, along with some stuff from my computer.
In the end I might just end up using both services (Dropbox and Amazon Cloud Drive), one as a free service and the later one as a paid service at some point.
Though at this point I’m rambling on to much with this topic.
