It seems that my skywatching activities have been curtailed immensely by my busy schedule. I don't have as much photo walk dates with my husband as it used to be. The only time I can skywatch nowadays is when I'm driving from one point to another. And oftentimes, I don't have my camera with me.
I've been resistant to the use of phones for this purpose; however, there have been times when I simply must capture the sky. I suppose I found out that my phone had a few sky shots on it when I transferred the images to my computer over the weekend.
Here's a 10/12/12 image shot through the windshield. I reckon I was off to work when this was captured.
I have to get another shot just in case the first one was bad :)
On 1/27/13 through a clean glass door of a friend's house overlooking the beautiful bay area. The cities are Berkeley and El Cerrito as you can see beyond the golf course.
You can imagine the same scene only at nightime, and all those buildings/houses are lit against the dark night giving the impression of gems glistening.
Last Saturday, 02/02/13, as we were on the way to the grocery store, we noted the sky was gorgeous. Since we were inland at that time, my husband felt compelled to drive towards the water's edge and the closest we could find (well not the closest really) was Point Richmond and so we drove all the way there hoping that the sunset would still be around by the time we get there. And so it was.
The bridge you see here is the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge connecting the East Bay to Marin County (North Bay).
I'm pretty sure I'd be expected to use the phone more often now. I kinda like the images as they are coming out of the phone like this. There may be some hues/coloratin loss but overall I think I'm liking this phone camera thingy :)
