Cool Phrase of the Day

In an attempt to perpetuate an endangered species, a zoo in Thailand is attempting to teach panda bears how to mate by showing them how-to videos. That's right, the world will never be the same again...because now there is panda porn.

The Lameness of Cellular Cameras

Last night before I left work, there was a big fire burning at what I believe was an abandoned church. Huge flames shooting into the sky and surrounded by fire trucks. We had a great view so I attempted to take a picture of the event, and I got this...



Yeah boy, that really captured the moment.

By the time I was leaving and got to the parking garage, the fire had been put out. I tried to take another picture since I figured it might turn out better with no glass in the way...



Slightly better, but not by much. Oh well. Good thing I'm not a newspaper photographer. If I was, I'd probably have better equipment, though.

All this being said, I have had some fun with semi-spontaneous pictures taken by cellcam before. On my last trip to Albuquerque, I was driving along and came to an intersection near where the local newspaper is published. I saw a sign I just had to take a picture of for MM...and I snapped this one.



I added the text in later with MS Paint. Anyhow, I'll read up on my cellphone camera instructions and hopefully take some higher quality pictures next time I encounter a newsworthy image opportunity.
