I could have kicked myself last week. It was a half hour into our Labor Day weekend drive to Florida. Where was my camera? I checked the back seat. Rufus was there looking cute in his cage. The bag of snacks Cindy packed was in place. Plus, the CD lectures on American presidents I checked out from the library was there. But no camera.
We were headed to Fernandina Beach where my daughter Lauren works as a teacher. Fernandina is just down the road from the Georgia Naval base where our son-in-law Luke works as an officer. I don't get to the coast too often and since I'm an early riser I enjoy getting up and watching sunrises. But without my Canon camera I thought I might as well sleep in.
Well, I did wake up early and the sky was full of color and changing personality. The only thing I had was my Droid 2. It's got a decent camera but without a tripod I thought I wouldn't be able to capture much in the low light. Well, it could have been a lot better but I did get some decent images which I am posting today. In the low light I was forced to line up the image and then press the camera against my nose to get as steady a shot as possible.
What are your stories about using cellphone cameras? I'd love to hear them. What was your best shot? Care to share? You can email your images to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put them up.
