My shiny new toy and pictures, pictures, pictures!

Well, almost a week old now. emoticon



It takes considerably better pictures than my previous phone. These three shots were with the old phone, all about the same time of day (morning on the way to work) back in late November to Early December:




This one is from the new phone, same basic location, this week:


I think the difference is pretty notable.

This picture I took yesterday with the new phone. This is what my desk at work looks like. Yes, I actually manage to keep it that clean or cleaner - the vast majority of my projects are sent to me by email or over the server, so I don't have a lot of "paperwork". And I work best with a clean spaces.

You can see the mug for water on the left, the water filter and the gallon jug in the middle. By having water that easily accessible, I usually have 6-8 glasses during my workday.



Oh, and one last picture from the old phone. Our work restroom has this odd little side room with a full length mirror. I think that's the first time I've taken a picture of myself in a mirror. I'm behind the times!




It's also mid-month. Five full months of using SparkPeople daily. Uploaded new pics in my swimsuit and one in my gym clothes on my page. It's my new low today, so I may bounce back up a little before I go down more, but as of today I'm touching 40 pounds lost.

(LOL! That emoticon is 40. How appropriate!)

It's been a fun ride so far, for sure! Thanks everyone for sharing this journey - the companionship makes it better.

    Congratulations! That is how I feel about my iPhone 4! I bought it to do facetime with my grandson, I absolutely love it. And I love being able to check out the nutrition on the SparkPeople app when I am out and want something.

    i have never learned to take pictures with my phone. Well when I first got it I made some weird pictures such as the floor, etc. I was frequently hitting the exposure button.
