We visited Las Vegas for a day recently, then drove to Death Valley and up to Bishop, CA and enjoyed the eastern Sierras. This picture is of Rick's Restorations, another show we catch from time to time. We were able to drop into the Pawn Stars shop, but didn't turn in anything or buy anything. Just for curiosity sake.
Don't get stuck in Death Valley!
This morning the fog rolled into Des Moines [it's still present as I write this] and I left early and went to Gray's Lake, Waterworks Park, the River downtown, and Capitol Hill and shot whatever seemed interesting to me. The images are up at my gallery site: Ethereal Des Moines
The first is of the new bridge across the river in downtown Des Moines and the other is an iPhone panoramic view at Gray's Lake.
So, you thought you couldn't abide the earbuds which came with the [old] iPhone? Well here's a use for them which I discovered recently. As you know, there are two ways to take pictures using your iPhone, with the usual front button and also pressing the "+" [volume up] button on the side. But if you really want to minimize shake or movement, you can plug in the earbuds [I tested an old set on my new iPhone5 and it worked wonderfully] and press the "+" area on the cable and it'll take a picture.
