alright folks, after being without one for the past 18 months, i know finally have a camera phone once again! in other words… it’s on!
having a palm treo with a camera for years was something that brought me and many friends much joy as i was able to document some of the crazy randomness that i tend to encounter with surprising regularity. in september ’07 i upgraded from a treo 750 to a blackberry 8830 world edition which came in extremely handy in all my international travel throughout the following year, but did not have a camera. well, today i put an end to that when i switched to a shiny new blackberry curve, complete with camera!
here is a small sample of some of my camera phone goodies from over the years…
Front a center at a private event in DC where Beyonce gave a surprise performance
At an instore with Kirk in Atlanta (Oct 05), we "experienced" this crazy lady who claimed to have written all of his songs, and MaryMary's, and Kierra Sheard's... priceless!
On the Hero Tour (Spring '06), I think we were in Mississippi... this McDonalds employee was getting dressed for work in the parking lot right by the front door.
Not surprisingly, at the same McDonalds as mentioned above, saw this dude who was rocking TWO different plaids... and you know he thought he was killin it, right?
During a hurricane-produced gas shortage in Dallas in 2005, one local station had apparently run out of "regural". Classy.
I know what they meant to say, but "remodelation"?
King's Palace in Joplin, Missouri... the only Chinese buffet I have seen with mashed potatoes and gravy, spaghetti and smoked sausage.
and my personal favorite... "special gift for special people"... a figurine of a small african-american child sitting on a toilet, pants down, putting on her shoes... for the person who has everything.
the camera phone bandit is back… this will be your only warning… i’m just saying…
