Some more pictures from recent vacation

I posted a few pictures of beer from a recent trip and here are some more pictures, this time of flowers at Keukenoff Gardens.

As you know, these are all mostly from a Lumia 920, and some from an iPhone 5s.

Some samples embedded below:

Shots of beer from recent vacation

I tweeted this out a few days ago, but I thought I’d put it here as well. Some shots of beer I took on a recent trip to Brussels, Bruges, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. (All pics are Lumia 920 or iPhone 5s, as you may have read in my earlier post about this vacation.)


No cameras or computers on upcoming trip

We have an upcoming 10-day vacation to places we have never visited before and I have made the decision to not carry any cameras or computers. While this may be ok for some of you out there it is a big deal for us.

Of course, I mean “camera” and “computer” in their traditional sense of the words as in a point-and-shoot or DSLR camera or a laptop (Windows or Mac). I am going to use my Lumia 920 (and iPhone 5s to a certain extent) as my camera, and am planning to carry my iPad 2 and Dell Venue 8 Pro as my computer.

We are going with another family and they are planning to bring their DSLR, so we will see how many pictures end up having a huge difference in quality.

The surprising aspect of this is that I didn’t even think twice before making the decision about the camera. I am not 100% convinced of the PC, but I do believe it makes sense to leave it behind.

Wish me luck!

Going to Miami…but with a heavy heart

Long long weekend (taken the Friday off) in Miami and Key West planned. Was quite pumped up about the trip. First time for me. First time for my wife.

But after the li’l one’s situation, our minds and hearts will be here. Hopefully she will continue to improve and get her health back in order. Our prayers are continuously with her. Hope it is just a minor, temporary thing. Hope.

We debated if we should stay back and not go this weekend. But it seems that the baby has to be in the hospital till Tuesday in any case. Plus there is some help around, so it should be ok for the weekend.

Cell phones are a wonderful thing. Hopefully we will use them only to exchange ‘I love you, sister’ calls … Mojito, anyone? 😉
