The Tivoli

One of the oldest and most interesting movie theatres in St. Louis, as seen reflected in the window of a clothing store across the street.

Golden sunset

As the days get shorter, the sunsets are coming earlier. Incidentally, this photo was taken on what might end up having been the last "hot day" of St. Louis 2010. The high temperature was over 90, with more-seasonal highs in the 60s and 70s expected over the following week.

This way

From the wall of a parking garage. Taken with the Hipstamatic 170 and its newest film/lens combo, the Ina's 1935 film and the Bettie XL lens. As forewarned by the Hipstamatic folks, the Bettie XL lens suffers from a leaky seal: "Be careful with this one, you never know when the streaks will happen."

Birds on the wires

Edited using the PictureShow and Plastic Bullet apps


One of the geese from my work campus, looking out into the pond and illuminated during the hour before sunset. At 328x328 pixels, this is a severe cropping from a 5 MP photo taken with my iPhone. I processed the photo using several iPhone apps, mainly Picture Show and PhotoCopier.

Little Borat 2

It's been three years since the original Little Borat video, but my nephew Willie is back as Little Borat:

Recorded earlier this month using the HD video camera in the iPhone 4 and edited on the iPhone 4 using the iMovie app.

Goodbye, summer

As the temperatures here in St. Louis cool down during this week of Labor Day, the summer of 2010 starts to fade from my memory...

One of a kind

This was my cousin Brenda's car, until yesterday, when she traded it in. Brenda's words: "My poor little egend. I cried when I handed over the keys."

I have no idea what these Japanese characters (or words?) say. I took these four individual photographs early Saturday morning before the start the annual Japanese Festival in St. Louis. There were differently-colored banners for the festival, each identical except for their color.

If anyone can translate for me, I'd love to know!

Ghost dogs
