so ive finally entered the 21st century and got myself a phone with a camera in it. Indeed for hte past 6 years I have sported the cheapest, plainest phones on the market. No point in anything other when it rings once a month. Anyhoo, i got myself one of those smartphones and after an episode of major post-purchase dissonance (COMPLETELY not the phone's fault, but rather the utter EVIL that is Telstra, dear god I want to smash you in the face Telstra) I am off. And it is awesome. I got talked out of the iPhone which is probably another strike against my application with the Cool Kids (or is it cool to be different these days? i dont know. Cool is so confusing to me) but get to do pretty much everything those phone do, and apparently then some. Which is all rather irrelevant anyway seeing as all Im going to ever realistically do is a few google searches, access the gps stuff and download apps that allow me ot funkify my photos*.
And funky photos are all the rage these days on facebook - hell anywhere - and why not seeing as the combination of my childlings and a 60s hue is MAGICAL. This awesomeness and the lightweightedness of the phone (compared to the other beast of a camera) might make these 'Mobile Uploads' a dominating force on this blog. So below are a few pics of me testing it out.
*feel free to let me know about hte 'apps' i cant live without (android pretty much has everything apple has so dont hold back Cool Kids)
rocco and the naught step. firm friends.
yesterday's christmas pageant. zero interest in the floats, total adoration of the fountains.
one could almost call them best mates.
post baby chino face. i like to leave that monobrow there all day. parenthood is totally awesome sometimes.
this little gem from my youth is not a grand as my mind remembers, but rather, is so bizarre and woeful that it possibly BETTER. Whilst we were too early for the lights and action (nightime falls after the boys bedtime is summer, oh how i love you summer) the Christmas display next to the West End Brewery still packs a punch. And seeing as it is a 2 min drive from our house, I suspect we will collect many more photos.
part of the total awesomeness of the display is that it is a year round thing (with extra red pizazz added in November nad December), so you can see this doozy whenever. you. like.
... that be the vulcan.
moby dick. he made a bid for freedom in the floods of 2005, but only managed to get so far as the Patawolunga
