No Sir.. Just a job transfer for a couple of years.
I finally have a cell phone with a decent camera in it. Except for the lack of a zoom lens, my new LG does as well as the 12 MP Canon P&S I used to own.
My little town's busy waterfront.
Snapped this thunderstorm from a distance of 50 miles while playing golf last weekend.
Figured it was either an impressive thunderstorm, or the Callaway Nuclear Plant went up.
It's approximately in the same direction.

About 6 inches from his face. Tried to get close.
Was out at the airport picking up a package and this plane rolled up. A Pilatus PC-12.. Our little puddle jumper air taxi bought one this one recently. Pressurized, service ceiling 30,000 ft, 320 cruise speed, 2000 mile range.. Definitely in a different league from their other little Cessna's!
I would almost buy a ticket somewhere just to go for a ride!
Fluke photo, trying to take a snap of a red-winged blackbird:
Photo through a telescope at the Metropark, looking at downtown Detroit (ugh) 20 miles away.
Two weeks ago, this is how Bachelor Week started off for me.
(The "2112" margarita.)
I'll miss the Metroparks when we move...
Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again...
Seriously, how many sports can be played while holding an adult beverage? Lol.
Not to go all photo-gear pixel peeper nerd, but that lens has some SEVERE vignetting going on!
Not very interesting, but this is the most recent cellphone pic I've nabbed. For another thread talking about Orient (and other) watches.
I'm surprised it actually worked as well as it did. I need to go back on a clear, low-humidity day so I can get a couple of pics of the windmills on the farms in Canada (Lakeshore, ON).
I don't have a telescope and/of DSLR adapter but I have a nice Leopold spotting scope and I'm pretty amazed at how well I can just use my cellphone, holding it up to the eyepiece.
If the sun as behind me or adjacent to me, the pics even look pretty clear. It definitely doesn't work as well when shooting towards the sun even when the sun isn't in the scene.
