Introducing My iPhone Photo Gallery!

Yes, I’m still working on getting new photo albums posted for both Julianne and Melody. They’re coming....they really are! But it also occurred to me that I have some of the greatest technology in the world (a beautiful little iPhone) in my pocket at all times and I could leverage that power to get photos posted to the web in near-real time.

Besides being a touch-screen iPod, an ultra-portable Internet/email device, a PDA-replacement, ...oh, and a phone of course, the iPhone also includes an impossibly tiny camera that takes surprisingly decent photos. Over the past couple of months, I’ve enjoyed the convenience of always having a camera on me when I’m out and about with the kids. The photo quality isn’t the same as the Canon Rebel camera I usually use, but there’s a uniquely funky Cinéma Vérité-like quality to many of the iPhone photos that appeals to me.

But coolest of all is that the moment I take a photo, I can instantly have that photo uploaded to my online photo gallery at a touch of a button. So pretty much no matter where I am in the world, I can get a photo online in a matter of seconds. Ya gotta love technology.

And now, without further ado...

Check out my iPhone Photo Gallery!

I encourage everyone to check out all the viewing options on the page (pay particular attention to the bottom-left of the page). My favorite viewing mode is called Carousel. There’s also an image download button, an RSS subscription button, and a photo resizing slider — among many other bells and whistles.

And please keep checking back regularly. Photos can — and will — be added (in reverse chronological order) at any time!
