Pixel Perfect Morning.

We took a short stroll with the pups this morning. We made our way towards the end of the street, near Ashley & Ryan's house, then turned back towards our house.  I'm assuming most of you readers aren't familiar with the layout of our neighborhood but it goes something like this: Our street, South Shore Drive, runs along the side of the lakes and has no outlet. Most of our walks consist of us walking down the street and turning back towards our house which is situated at the beginning of the second lake.

So.. as we turned back towards the homestead this morning, I could see the Sun peeking through the trees. I then made the decision that we should walk past the house and walk over to the dam that separates the two lakes. I'm glad we did, as the sunrise was absolutely perfect this morning. The lake was perfectly still and smooth like glass. I only had my Pixel with me so I snapped a few photographs to add to my Instagram story. I liked them so much, I decided to do a little write-up and post them here.

It's kind of hard to believe how far smartphone photography has improved in the space of a few years. It seems like only yesterday that I was scoffing at the idea of taking a picture on a cell phone, while I walked around with a giant Canon 7D around my neck. The hardware side of things has steadily improved over the last 10 years, but ultimately there is only so much information that you can pack into a tiny sensor. Where the true future of phone photography lies is on the software side of things. Computational Photography is the future of the photographic industry.


A word from the Editor: I'm quite happy with the traffic to the website this past month. There have been over 500 visits in September with almost all of them occurring in the last week, in large part to the Corvettes In Color post. My goal for the next month is to match that 500 number and perhaps even break 1000 by the end of October, so wish me luck. I'd also like to hear from you readers. I try to remember to turn the comments on for each and every post, but now an again it slips past me. I encourage everyone to leave a comment, like this post, share it on social media, or just plain old tell your friends y'all.  Let's try to grow this thing as big as possible.
