My innate reluctance to accept new technologies is frequently assuaged by the sheer handiness of some devices, even though their character changes almost as soon as I finally give in.
Such is the case with my first-generation iPhone. The new ones have a better camera and can do all manner of nifty things. So could this one, probably, if I ever really learned how to use all its features. But having even a 2 megapixel camera is rather handy, and I no longer have to carry the "big camera" around in order to take advantage of every Nikon moment.
I often find myself on the fourth floor of our building when the sun's in an interesting spot, usually near sunset. The opening shot was taken from my classroom last week, when I noticed that the light was really dramatic, and the reflections and shadows on our new parking garage were especially cool.
The image below was taken a couple of months ago from inside the library, which accounts for the reflection of the fluorescent light banks superimposed on the reflection of the setting sun on the building next door. One of the best things about sky-watching is that it makes one notice it both as background and subject.
That's all, Folks. But have a happy Skywatch Friday, and many thanks again to the Team for all their hard work wrangling us all together.
