Update Dec. 14, 2010: I’m going to try and get back on the bandwagon here. I’m sorry to say (no I’m not) that my old iPhone finally bit the dust. I’m trying my best to keep this fancy new one looking new. It takes better photos and video, too! Anyway, the recap of how this whole thing got started is below.
Like many who have fallen for Apple’s clever brainwashing marketing campaigns, I too have been taking the bait for years. When the first version of the iPhone was available I ran to the store with money that my wife thought should have been spent elsewhere.
While out photographing a spring snow storm on March 24, 2010 I dropped my beloved iPhone – which I depend on too frequently to manage my life – in a gutter. I realized this problem nearly an hour later, when I reached for it to look up a location. Backtracking my previous stops I found it lying in the slush, a tire track across the screen. Even more astonishing than finding the iNeedle in an iHaystack was the fact that it still worked.
You’re likely asking ‘What’s your point here and what’s the deal with the photo?’
Well, in order to help me keep track of my lifeline to the cyber world I am beginning a new photo series. Almost every day I capture photos using my iPhone and the one’s I like will be posted here. Not only will this ensure it is in my pocket when I get out of my vehicle it may also turn into a fun visual journey.
Excuse me, I have to take this call…
