Feel good photos.

So my iPhone, while all-important to my life and the well-being of those around me, is essentially a glorified camera.  Honestly, it’s basically a text message and photo taking machine.  That, and it told me that the redline was suffering some horrible delay today, so I had the technologically founded foresight to take the bus home.  Thanks, Apple!

Either way, regardless of nomenclature, my iPhone does have an amazing cache of feel good photos.  We all have them: some good, some funny and some horribly ugly…a moving and ever-evolving photo album of good times and special memories right there at your fingertips.  They don’t have to make sense or make smiles for anyone but me, and that’s what makes them so good.  Thanks, Apple.

  5. fuzzy and incredibly colorful caterpillar hiding in the grass.
  6. mister man: Mushu the cat.

  9. melon in a tiny bowl.  Enough said.

  12. Bourbon Street action shot during a…memorable vacation.
  13. delicate and beautiful bouquet of cherry blossoms – just in time for Valentine’s Day.
