In the title of this blog, I state that this is a bunch of "mostly random posts sent from (my) iPhone". Strictly speaking, this is still true - however, in the interest of moderately full disclosure, I have to say that this image was taken with my Canon 20D DSLR and a 24-70mm f/2.8L lens. I lit the scene with a Canon 580EX flash and a Lightsphere II to diffuse it some. I'm a photographer, after all :) I had previously loaded it onto my iPhone for use as a sort of mobile photo gallery. Just today, I was looking at it and decided it would be good to post it - and ouilá. Here it is.

go by. The surround sound really fools him. It's funny as hell to watch his scan around the ceiling looking for the bird that he "knows" is there because he can hear it!

In this pic, Jaws is patiently waiting for a treat.
She's quite. Sweetheart!
I have to hand it to the people that control real planes, day in, day out, all day and all night. Sims can be stressful enough. We are running real live radar in this picture, but, we aren't the ones controlling the aircraft. They're over on the other side of the airport. If something goes wrong here, we can just hit "reset".

Well, I'm a photographer. My best work is done with a DSLR, but, as much as people berate the iPhone camera and its lack of controls (something I don't like either), it's way better than my old Treo 650's camera, so, I'm appeased. If only the DSLR could be pocket-size.
I was just sitting on the couch minding my own business when Mojo decided to slink across the couch, onto my lap, then flip onto his back like a baby so I would scratch his belly. Such a suck up, this one.
Mojo's an 18 month old red-nose pit bull. If you've spent any time around pit bulls, then you already know that while they are powerful dogs, they are also the biggest babies in the dog world. They may be terriers, but, they're affection "hounds", too. He would slowly wiggle under your shirt in his sleep to get close to you if you let him.
