I’m sure it’s the same for any parent. Whenever you encounter these things, you’re obliged to take a picture. I am taking this opportunity to purge my phone.

It really must suck to be trees out of luck.
A guest post from my nephew, Jack. What a gift!
My family and I went up to Kennebunkport, ME this weekend for a small town celebration called the Christmas Prelude. We went up Friday and stayed through today when we came home. The picture on the top right was the fireworks on Friday night which we were fortunate enough to view from our room during the pouring rain. The picture in the middle on the top is of the Christmas tree in the center of town. The lighting was on Friday as well and we were “entertained” by a group of singers who weren’t that good and off key. I guess that’s because it is a small town. On Saturday we got pictures with Frosty the Snowman and then went shopping. Dad and I were not enthused. That night we went to a church and heard some singers who were surprisingly good. This morning there was the “Christmas Pooch Parade” and it was a parade of dogs dressed up in costumes. The picture on the top right is of a dog we all liked. He was dressed up as a present and kept tripping. The picture on the bottom is of our view of the port from our room.
I got another app. I heard it was free and it sounded simple. It’s called Bleach Bypass, and both those claims were true. You pick or take a picture, choose an effect (of just several choices, but you adjust the effect’s intensity), and then you save/share the photo.
The app purports to “add a cinematic quality” to images and saves them at full resolution. I wasn’t really sure what that meant, but I guess it has to do with vignetting, increasing contrast, muting color, and stuff like that. All I know is I like how the edit came out, and it wasn’t forced into a square format. Good enough for me.
When she’s tired, she assumes the position. It’s a tradition, really. On any family outing that requires some pedestrian activity, you can count on a squat or two. She quickly revives. Especially with the promise of hot chocolate.
If you see the state of Virginia in this pothole, then you think like a 6 year old.

Can you discern the self-portrait in one of these? It’s not my “self”. Here’s an example of what happens when my phone is left unattended in the presence of children, who should otherwise be eating their breakfast: art!
