01/31/2004: "First Photos with new Blink II"
Well, the Blink II digital camera I bought from buy.com (for 22 bucks with a 20 dollar mail-in rebate so it only cost 2 dollars before shipping) came in a few days ago and I just took the first couple of photos. Both are shots taken out my living room window toward the downtown Douglas main street.
The building next door to the orange church is the Douglas Public Library.
The grey building is the Douglas Cafe which makes good food but is hugely over-priced. The roof that my living room looks out over is Louie's Bar.
Me, in my post operative glory!
I painted my toenails for my operation...pretty
Trees behind my house.
The neighbors have fixed my mailbox and it appears that the shoveling fairy has somehow managed to already shovel my driveway this morning without me even hearing them! As I have mentioned before, the people in this town are incredibly friendly.
Not the highest quality photos granted, but not bad for a camera that is only 2 inches long and about a centimeter thick. It's really cute and the price was right. If it craps out after a little while that's ok. I'm still having fun playing around with it.
I also received this great photo of my friend and former roommate Susan who now lives in Switzerland. She is expecting soon and I think she looks amazing!
By the way, I just got off the phone with the THIRD friend who has called me to go skiing today! We had several inches of new snow on Friday but I won't be able to go skiing for several weeks still.
