Testing the iPhone 11 Pro on Night Mode


I got the iPhone 11 Pro for Christmas so I am still learning to use the features.  I just realized that it has a cool feature called Night Mode.  As the name implies, it takes long exposures of night or dark images.  The image was captured hand held for about 3 seconds.  Even then it produced a rather sharp image.  Must be the Apple's algorithm.  Cool stuff.  This iPhone is a keeper.

Taken from our backyard porch.  The houses are not ours but from our rich neighbors.

Hope you are having a good day.

Post Valentine's Day


Rose and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day.  Everyday is Valentine's Day for us.  But we did check out a new restaurant nearby.  It's 2020 Market Scratch Kitchen & Bar.  They have just opened early this year.  Cool place.  We ordered a bottle of their Savignon Blanc.  The bartender thought we wanted one glass instead of the whole bottle.  No worries.  He gave us the extra glass on the house.  Nice.

A stone's throw away was Rivery Bend Park.  The weather was chilly but we were not to be deterred to walk along the park.  Obviously, the alcohol has a lot to do with it.

The image was taken with my new iPhone 11 pro at ultra wide angle and cropped in post processing. I dig how the bartender is looking up.  She was actually looking at the television while flipping through the channels.  But to a regular viewer, she could be looking at a bright object.  "Now I see the light!"

Hope your day is going well.

Postmodern Architecture in San Antonio


The architect ran out of creative ideas so decided to call this cutting edge postmodern architecture.  Sigh.
