Pics from St Augustine- Heading Home

It’s time to hit the road home. In fact, I’m typing this up in the passenger seat of our rented minivan as we begin the 13 hour trek back to North Mississippi. It’s been a good trip and a fun vacation despite rain on and off throughout our stay. Oh, and the fact that the ocean decided to remove my prescription glasses on day three. Thankfully, the local LensCrafters was fast and got me a new pair made yesterday. I wasn’t alone either- there where four others who lost their glasses in the water at that location yesterday. That made me feel a little better.

Pictures from St Augustine- Day Three

Into every life, a little rain must fall. This is especially true in Florida right now. Day two of our trip was full of rain in the afternoon. We had a nice time taking a trolley tour through the city and learning a lot about its buildings and history. However, while that was a great way to do something and still stay semi-dry, it didn’t make for great picture taking.

While we still had to dodge some raindrops today, we were able to get in a few hours at the beach in nice weather. We then went to a wildlife rescue where I thought I would take a ton of pictures. Unfortunately, they didn’t allow picture taking, but it was still a great tour that got us just a few feet away from some some Tigers, Lions, Wolves, and even one very large Liger.

Greetings and Photos From St Augustine, FL!

It’s vacation time again. My family and I are in St Augustine, FL to spend some time at the beach and see a few sights around America’s oldest city. As I did with the trip my wife and I took to New Orleans for our anniversary last year, I am going to take this opportunity to post some pictures from my iPhone X.

Last year I tested out a couple of camera lens kits from Ztylus for the iPhone 7 Plus I had at the time. This time, I am looking at three lenses from Sandmarc. Today’s pics from the boat tour and the beach feature their Wide Angle and Fisheye lenses for the X, along with a few pics from the X alone. I will be reviewing these lenses, along with Sandmarc’s Macro lens, after we return home next week.

Last Minute iPhone Guide for the Eclipse Procrastinator [Updated]

If you are like me, you knew about the solar eclipse that is upon us today, but maybe you didn’t think ahead and prepare in advance….also like me, Oops. I had assumed that we would have a welding hood around with adequate protection, but it turns out that wasn’t the case, and it was too late for me to get any special “eclipse glasses.” However, you might be able to find some enterprising local kids out selling the ones they bought up on a street corner, like I saw this morning. I applaud their entrepreneurial spirit!

Review: Ztylus Revolver RV-3 Lens Case for iPhone 7 Plus


Ztylus has stepped forward as an interesting competitor to olloclip in the market for higher-end enhancement lenses for iPhone cameras. There are plenty of knockoffs and cheap alternatives available from Amazon, eBay, and other online outlets, but Ztylus’ products show a level of creativity and polish in their designs that the lesser products don’t. However, good design alone does not a good picture take. Does the picture quality from Ztylus’ lenses match up to their case and lens design? Read on to find out.

An Apple Campaign: One Night on iPhone 7 in Pictures

one-night-iphone_photo-2

Back in November of 2016 professional photographers from all around the world set out to canvass the  globe for one night using only their iPhone 7.  As part of the “Shot on an iPhone” campaign these photographers set out to capture the essence and beauty of life from dusk to dawn showcasing the low-light camera capabilities.   The fruits of their work will be displayed around the world in 25 countries starting today.  The variety and range of their work encompasses Arctic ice caves and Indonesian volcanoes, as well as the clubs of Johannesburg and rooftops of Shanghai.

Photographers ventured out and endured conditions in some extreme climates in an attempt to push the limits of the iPhone 7 and find the perfect shot. From pictures taken with a drone carrying an iPhone 7 over active volcanoes, to the foreboding terrain of the Arctic, photographers pushed the limits of the iPhone armed with just their imaginations.  The final products were stunning and a remarkable tribute to what the iPhone is capable of.
