I was diligently copying photos from my phone and backing them up the other day. Looking back, here are the highlights from my cell phone for the first three months of the year.
Conclusion? I take a lot of pictures of food and drinks with my phone. A lot.
That doesn’t bother me too much. Each one of them is some fun memory.
I’m going to review/back up my cell phone pictures once a quarter. Want to join me? We could do a blog hop of fun cell phone pictures once every 3 months. If you’re interested, leave me a note in the comments.
Through the Eye of My Phone in Early 2012
I think cell phone pictures show very interesting slices of life that we don’t always get with regular cameras.
In January, Mr. P and I jetted off to Vegas to celebrate the engagement of some close friends. A cocktail I ordered came with gummy bears! The picture on the right is from our local movie theater. It’s a super cool old theater with a Wurlitzer organ show.
On the left was snapped in Old Oakland before dinner one evening. On the right is from a wine tasting trip with friends.
Next, it was off to London for a lot of work and a bit of sightseeing.
Later back at home, Mr. P and I had dinner at our favorite food truck. It’s the best food truck ever. Where else are you going to get truffle tater tots?
The food truck sometimes parks at a favorite downtown bar, so we pair a trip to the truck with a beverage. On the right, California poppies are blooming in our neighborhood.
And just like that, the beginning of the year is over. I mentioned that 2012 was going to be crazy and it’s lived up to its billing so far!
A note on how I edited these photos: Yes, they’re square and have filters but I did not use Instagram. I edited them this way to show you that you can do this for free with Picasa and not need a special app. I cropped these into squares, added a vignette, sharpened them and used the boost feature.
I’ll do another cell phone roundup at the beginning of July. If you’re interested in participating in a blog hop, leave me a comment. Have a great day!
