The sky last night

From my cellphone, with no alterations or enhancements except cropping parking lot crap off the bottom.

Cool, huh? When we walked out of the restaurant, the world was very yellow, which definitely got our attention.

    (Which really was all I had to say, except WP told me my comment was “too short,” so I added this bit.)

    Uh…WTH? :roll:

    I’m glad you guys liked it! I was really surprised it captured it as well as it did.

    Karen, I’m not sure why WP does that. I’ve had it happen to me, too, and my reaction was “But…but…it’s MY blog!”. It didn’t care.

    Kwana, I’ve got a 1 1/2 year old, now obsolete Motorola MOTO w755 with a 1.3 megapixel camera. It’s not a smartphone or anything. Just a plain old dumbphone. And, believe it or not, the camera’s always mediocre at best and has been randomly freezing up my phone for the past couple of months. But, for some reason, it captured this shot nicely.

    I use my cellphone camera so often I’ll be making it a higher priority in my next phone. The Droid has an 8mp camera, which is unbelievable, but I don’t know how much I liked the Android platform. IF, and it’s a big IF, the iPhone comes to Verizon in January as rumored, I’ll be getting that, which has…a 5mp, I think?

    *crosses fingers*

    It was stunning, but a little weird, too.

    You know how sometimes, during a sunset, the world looks washed with pink? Well, seeing it washed with yellow was very odd. A lot of people milling around looking at the sky.

    Waiting for aliens, maybe? :lol:
