Instagram: White Chocolate Pound Cake

Today was Thanksgiving dinner day for my Mom’s side of the family.

It. Was. Delicious.

This cake was my favorite dessert. My aunt Rhonda made it and it was mouth watering.

It’s a white chocolate pound cake topped with cherries, grapes, powdered sugar and sprigs of sage and rosemary for garnish.

She also made a sauce to go on top made of raspberries, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and zest.

I’m now going to go lay down and let this food coma subside.

Iphonography: Drag Races

Here in Bristol, there are two things that put us on the map: the founding location of country music and Bristol Motor Speedway.

I love that we are known for country music and usually celebrate that when Bristol Rhythm and Roots rolls around. NASCAR, however, I’m not a fan of. So when my Dad had told me that he had gotten us tickets to go see the drag races, you could imagine my hesitancy.

The races take place on a separate track from the main Speedway. The track is a quarter of a mile long and pretty thin. Not much to say about it. The cars on the other hand, were awesome.

There are two different types of cars that race on the track: Dragsters and Funny Cars. The Dragsters are the normal long-nosed drag racing cars (can be seen in the pictures below) and the Funny Cars are basically a huge motor covered by a metal or plastic hull with decals that are made to look like really nice racing cars.

Saying that it’s difficult to get a good picture of a car going well over 300 MPH using an iPhone, is an understatement. But the iPhone did a whole lot better than I thought it would do. Almost no blur, good clarity, and with the help of Camera Plus, good contrast and color. I totally enjoyed myself and can’t wait to go back next year. With the nice sunburn on the back of my neck, I guess I’ll fit in with the other rednecks there. Ha ha ha.

Iphonography: Shattered Windows

A mishap occurred this past Friday at our church.

Just a little accident.

One of the kids was playing with a new skateboard that they had been given when the skateboard flew out from under him and went rocketing toward the floor-level windows.

Fortunately, nobody was hurt and the window didn’t even bust all the way through.

It did however, crack very beautifully into a spider web like design.

The pictures were taken with an iPhone 4S and edited in Camera Plus.

The Beginning of My Iphonography Series

Hey everyone!
So I was pondering on what I could do make the blog more interesting, entertaining and more “me.”
Since I always have my iPhone with me, I tend to use it for quick little shots here and there and also for Instagram, as you all know.
So, I’ve made a new category under Photography, called Iphonography.
I will put all of my pictures taken and edited from my iPhone there.
And what better way to kick start the new category than by posting my prized possession!

I like to call this one “Through The Looking Glass.” Just because.

If you have Iphonography pictures or know a good blog that does, feel free to let me know!
