Nokia phone birthday photos

Okay, so it took me two weeks to figure it out (which translates into about 35 minutes of time, spread in 17 instalments over six separate days), but with Beloved's tech support I finally managed to figure out how to get my fancy new Nokia 6682 to release the pictures I took on my birthday.

For those of you who live in Ontario, that was the blistering hot day when the humidex topped out in the high forties, and there's no better place for a day like that than at the beach. Britannia Beach, in this case - the nicest, most kid-friendly beach in the Ottawa area.

A self-portrait, for Marla:

This one is grainy, I think because I maxed out the zoom. Still, I liked it enough to set it as the wallpaper on my phone. Simon loves wearing the "goobles".

For my birthday dinner, we went to Lone Star for fajitas. This is the boys with my wonderful mother, who is conveniently also my best friend.

Unfortunately, my dad looks a bit like a growth out of the side of my head in what would otherwise be a really cute shot.

These pix were taken with the phone straight out of the box. One day I might sit down and actually figure out how to compensate for light levels and such, as I think there are a whole whack of controls that I should be able to master in about a year and a half.

This concludes the paid advertising portion of our program. Thanks to Nokia, Matchstick and Rogers for the sweet deal!
