Today after work I took a ride to my favorite comic book store and at the same time I took my DSLR with me to try it out with the GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr. I synced the camera and the GPS but made a human error and mixed up the military time in my head and on the DSLR. But when I uploaded the photos to the software the times would not match up. Luckily I could also move the images around manually to give them the correct GPS information, approximately based on what I remembered.
Here are the rest of the images that I uploaded to Flickr today. I should upload a couple over at Zooomr tomorrow. Let me know which ones are good enough to post over on Zooomr. I like to put the best of the best there.
I am concerned about my camera though. It is making a lot of noise when it auto focuses. This past weekend I went to take a photo of a birds nest in the bushes. I came away with my hands covered in tiny spiders. They were also all over my camera, I spent about 30 minutes getting them all off the camera. I have a feeling that a couple got into the mechanism and got squished the next time I used the camera. I have no idea but it is annoying me big time.
Today brought a slew of additional write ups for the contest. Mo wrote a very cool post about the contest and tossed in links-a-plenty. I see that she finally has Internet access restored and will be a force to reckon with during the rest of the month. You can read her post called Iâ€™ve never been really good at mathâ€¦ on her blog We’re In A Fight.
Scott of the Wallhogs blog gave me BIG ups today by posting one of my photos and writing up about the contest. He picked a photo for the Wallhogs blog from last month from my trip to Butterfly World. I’m awarding Scott the 50 points for writing up the contest and he can earn another 25 by writing up one of my photos sometime later this month. In fact anyone playing can pick from any of my photos from the month of August (ones on Buzznet, Flickr or Zooomr) and write about it. You will earn 25 points for your effort and all players who leave a good comment on the post will receive 5 points.
Unrelated to the contest but still very cool is the fact that Meeyauw started her own Photo-A-Day blog. Way to go. I love her photos and am looking forward to each photo each day.
Lisa at My Thoughts, Ideas, and Ramblings wrote up a great post about two of my photos. She really liked some of my landscape photographs. Thanks Lisa, I like them too, I even use the second on on the post as my own personal screensaver. Lisa also made a suggestion for a way in which participants could earn points. It was to have a photo-a-day contest. One day I will post a bunch of photos, one from each participant who would like to submit one and have people vote on which one they like the most. Points for submitting and points for winning. 10 points to Lisa for the suggestion. I will work out the details of this and send everyone an e-mail with instructions sometime later this week or next.
