I just heard from Anna the Audiologist that two other audiologists we worked with at my last job in California, Anya and Inge, have moved to Portland. Apparently audiologists are smarter than the general population. It will be fun to see them again (assuming that they want to see me). Maybe they will be at the apple lecture.

Anna wants to go on another photo shoot with me. We did that some years ago, wandering around downtown and snapping photos. She is a very good photographer and has a nice camera. Me, my pics are pretty as long as I aim my little point-and-shoot camera at something nice, and not always then and otherwise not at all. At the last photo shoot I only liked one of the many I shot, and here it is:

We've had to wait to do it again since she went and had a kid, which disrupted her schedule. Now the kid is old enough to be left with the dog for a few hours.

Reminds me of a video I saw (most of) yesterday during lunch:

Basically it's a photog telling off other elitist photogs regarding their disdain for Instagram, calling it "cheating" to use filters to achieve cool effects. As he points out every new technology is basically seen as "cheating" at first, and frankly if you take a picture, add a filter and think it looks good then, hey, it looks good to the only person whose opinion matters.

Me, I'm probably terrible at taking pictures, but I know what filters I like and what I think looks good. Hell, I just learned that when you do a panorama with your iPhone you're supposed to keep the lens in one spot and rotate around the axis the lens is on, not turn your whole body holding the camera in front of you. Uh, sure... that's pretty damn near impossible to do without a tripod set up to make that happen, lol! I tried it yesterday, failed miserably! But I still like the pics I took at the Cub Scout Fun Day using panorama (turning my whole body!)

Then it's a good thing that I'm the only person whose opinion matters:
