Photoblog: Tomato Fibers
Tomato Fibers

Playing with my new FujiFilm F550 EXR. Loving it so far, it's nice to be able to capture a shot like this using a mid-range point and shoot. Bonus: used the camera's EXR mode for this which automatically detected that I was attempting a macro shot and adjusted internal settings accordingly. Take that, manual settings!

Photoblog: Sunrise Over Ontario
Sunrise Over Ontario

Slightly grainy shot captured recently whilst engaged in a weekend quick trip over the border. Should also be noted that this photo was taken with my trusty and newly updated iPhone 3GS which takes pretty good photos now that they've added that handy autofocus feature.

Posted in honor of my recent mishaps in the world of plumbing. This little shot was taken at the kid's museum over in Norwalk (Stepping Stones) which is in fact, fun for the whole family.

Snapped while traveling home from work on the rarely photogenic Harlem line. I'm even more pleased with the fact that this shot came from my trusty iPhone.

A macro shot taken way back in 2007 from a certain Disney theme park, in a certain part of TomorrowLand, on a certain bench across from the Speedway. What can I say, I'm a Disney nerd.

Photoblog: Loch Ness Gorilla
Loch Ness Gorilla

Weird shot I picked up after bringing in the kid's zoo toys after some rain. And yes, that would be a gorilla. But on another note, who decided that gorillas have bright green eyes? Shame on you, Bronx Zoo Gift Shop.

Fujifilm pulls the curtain back on six new cameras for fall lineup.Fujifilm pulls the curtain back on six new cameras for fall lineup.

I'm a big fan of Fujifilm cameras. Fun GLM fact: most all of the photos in the photoblog were taken on some kind of Fujifilm digital camera.
