What’s on My Cell Phone, Q2 2012 Blog Hop!

Cell Phone Photo Blog HopHalf of 2012 is gone already!  Just like that.

Today I’m sharing some cell phone pictures from the second quarter of 2012 (see the Q1 pics here).  I’ve asked some awesome bloggers to join me for a blog hop and share a bit from their phones/lives.

Tammy: Your Memory Connection http://www.yourmemoryconnection.com/

Why do this?  I think people capture different parts of their lives with their phone cameras as opposed to normal cameras.  It’s really interesting to see life through phone pictures.  Plus, it’s an incentive to organize your cell phone pictures!

When you’re done here, I hope you hop over to Tammy’s blog and check out her pictures!

My Cell Phone, April – June 2012

Before I begin, a story:  My phone died when I was at my sister’s wedding.  I hadn’t saved any pictures since I did this post in April.  All my pictures were gone.  Except they weren’t.  Several months ago I enabled the auto-upload feature on my Google+ account.  Every single picture that I lost had been automatically uploaded to my account .  Yup, I’m totally the guy from this commercial.

Now the pictures!  I tried not to do too much food this time!

Left:  The Cleveland Cascade – an urban staircase a few blocks away from where I live.  When I’m really on top of things, I run these stairs on Sunday mornings.  Right:  I bought a new beanie to wear to baseball games – I decided bright is better.

Cell Phone Photo Blog HopLeft: Baby feet!  My coworker’s newborn came to visit our office.  Right: Mr. P and I on a sunny evening on the deck of one of our favorite watering holes.

Cell Phone Photo Blog HopBoth of these are from dinner at Bocanova on Jack London Square.  I loved the light fixtures and the dinner was amazing!

Cell Phone Photo Blog HopLeft: A Sunday lazy breakfast at Arizmedi Bakery.  It’s called a “chocolate thing.”  Right:  I cook dinner and break in my bridesmaid shoes for my little sister’s wedding.

Cell Phone Photo Blog HopLeft: Stopped by a super cool new bar that has a boxing themeRight: Have you ever tried salsa instead of salad dressing on your salad?  Try it, it’s awesome!

http://prizefighterbar.com/Left:  Chairman Mao – I took this right after I picked up money for our trip to ChinaRight:  My little sister’s dog when we visited for her wedding.

Cell Phone Picture Blog HopLeft: Matt Cain’s perfect game!  I can’t believe I was lucky enough to be there to see it in person.  Right:  At dinner, I experiment with the front-facing camera on my phone.

Cell Phone Picture Blog HopLeft: My little sister gave us half of her cheesecake wedding cake top because it was too much for them to eat.  We happily took it off her hands.  Right:  At the end of the month, Mr. P and I saw American Idiot – it knocked my socks off!  Such a great end to the month.

Cell Phone Picture Blog HopAll pictures were cropped and processed on my computer with Picasa.

Some things you may notice are missing:  Nothing from my little sister’s wedding.  My phone broke while we were there, so no phone pictures 😦  Nothing from China.  I don’t use my phone a lot when traveling internationally.  My regular camera is usually surgically attached to my hand.

Stay tuned for next time! I’ll be doing a blog hop again in the Fall – it’s a good reminder for me to get the pictures off my phone.  If you want to join, leave me a message in the comments and I’ll email you when the time comes.

Head off to Tammy’s blog to continue the hop!

  1. Oh, I’ve been wanting to see American Idiot forever. My brother and I saw Green Day live a few years ago – it was a bit crazy, but fun! I am interested in how the music translates to the stage. Fabulous blog hop! I enjoyed seeing what everyone else posted and it gives me reminders of other times I should be reaching for the camera. Love to see slices of life through the camera phone! 🙂 Thanks for including me. Sign me up for next quarter too!

    • The show was really REALLY good. You’ll like it more if you’re familiar with their music, but the arrangements for the songs are just SO good.

      Great! Thanks for participating and I’ll put you down for next time!

  2. Cool photos! I’m going to have to try a salsa salad and I’ll all for a cheesecake wedding cake – yum! I have a love/hate relationship with my regular camera (pop-up flash broke & it’s bigger) which is probably why I use my camera phone so much. Count me in for a fall blog hop!

    • I just ate another salsa salad, SO GOOD and I’m not much of a salad person really!

      My little sister copied me – my wedding cake top was a cheesecake and her fiance liked the idea so much that’s what they did.

      Thanks! I’ll make sure to email you come fall!

    • Thanks! I really had to cut down the amount I wanted to show because I had SO many fun ones! I find it instructive to look at other people’s photos and think about bits of my life that I haven’t captured yet. I look forward to seeing what you do next time!

  3. Nat, thanks so much for hosting this fun blog hop! Your photos are interesting and I agree with Jessica, they are very diverse 🙂 Oh yes and I love those red shoes!

    Thanks for the google + tip, when I purchase an iPhone I will need to look into that. It’s been nice to meet some new bloggers too!

    Please count me in for the next round. Gxx

  4. Thanks, Nat, for sharing your great pics!! This is a great incentive for me to upload my pics. to my computer so I can use my cell phone for taking pics more often!!
