Blog & Giveaway Love . . .

Mid to late day posting is becoming all too regular around here.  I'm off kilter due to lack of sleep.  And this morning I decided it mattered more to fill my family's fridge with food than blog, so Ollie and I made the trek to the grocery store in the 15 degree weather.  I'm now set for a weekend of babyfood making and high chair refinishing.  Sounds fun, no?

Here's a fun idea for your weekend.  Go check out this new blog called Little Camera. It's a photoblog completely composed of photos taken with an iPhone.  I think you'll be surprised at the quality and creativity the photographer is showcasing.  He's exploring different 'apps' that give effects to his images,  which are primarily taken in the architecturally inspiring city of Washington DC. 

Oh yeah, I should probably mention that the photographer/blogger is my brother - the one who used to have a blog but quit due to the pressures of coming up with witty dialogue week after week.  This new blog is right up his alley.  He gets to share his photographic talent with us all while using as few words as possible.  And his iPhone pictures will ALL put my actual camera photos to shame Go check it out and leave a comment telling him that his beautiful, witty blogging sister sent you his way!

I hope you'll come back here on Monday to see what I've got in store for the February giveaway.  It's going to be a quick time frame since I want to send it in the mail by Wednesday of next week to reach the winner well before Valentine's Day.  It's pretty special.  In fact, I love it so much I may have a hard time parting with it.

Have a great weekend!

Hey, I know him!!! Thanks for pointing us in his direction. I've always been a fan of his work.

Sorry about the cold weather. Good luck with the refinishing!

(oh, and by "his work" I mean his photography and his Sleestack impressions)

Very cool blog recommend. It's amazing what a talented eye can do with a little technology.

I love the picture of your hubby that you put on your blog.

How does one refinish a baby high chair? Perhaps you should blog about this process. A photo or two wouldn't hurt either. =)

Have a lovely and restful weekend. Well as restful as you can with little Ollie.

love what chris is doing...thanks for passing along. there is a book called, "the best camera you have is the one that is with you" (a book about one man's journey with his iphone photos). most people think the camera is what makes the photographer so good....truly he shows that is not true. he is so talented....i have always admired his eye for composition and color.

p.s. there is an app for "the best camera" too....has some fun editing tools.

What app is he using? Those images are GREAT!
