A little bit behind.

Google sent me an email this morning to let me know that I’ve now uploaded 4,750 photos to Google Maps/Local Guides

But at the time of writing this post, I’d uploaded 4860 photos that have over 18.8 million views. I guess Google is a little behind. When they sent me my last email, I was over 4800 photos. But it’s nice to still be popular. And it’s still pretty neat. Because they don’t have to send me anything at all.

Thanks for giving me another way to share my photos, Google! πŸ˜€πŸ—ΊπŸ“·β€

Spaghetti western surf music?!

Back at the end of January when we were getting coffee one morning, and we noticed this poster in Sidewinder for The AmpFibians surf music series at Northside Tavern

We were really curious so tonight we walked over to Northside Tavern to check it out…

The first band at Northside Tavern tonight was Jake Logan and the Midnight Riders. They said they play spaghetti western surf music and it was awesome…

The second band was The AmpFibians and they played more traditional surf music…

And they were awesome too…

I’m not sure what was going on in the backroom at Northside Tavern but there were a bunch of people back there…

What a really fun night of incredible surf music at Northside Tavern! πŸ˜€πŸŒŠπŸŽΆβ€οΈ

Loving it.

I was really loving these stickers on a minivan that was parked on our street…

We ate this.

Last time we were at the grocery store, I talked Genifer into letting us get a big bag of delicious Totino’s pizza rolls…

And tonight we got to eat them…

I haven’t had pizza rolls in forever…

Pizza rolls are really tasty. And we ate them all. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

Good evening from Northside.

It’s what’s for dinner.

We made a bunch of little pizzas in the oven for dinner tonight…

I really like those one dollar 3-minute microwave pizza especially when they’re cooked in the oven. They are pretty tasty. πŸ˜€πŸ•β€οΈ

FIMO Analog Camera.

Lately, I’ve been playing around a lot with the FIMO Analog Camera app available on for both Android and iOS…

FIMO captures the beauty and magic of old school vintage images right through your viewfinder. Dust and scratches, retro colors, flickering, light leaks, even frame shakes, all can be instantly added with a single tap off the finger. With FIMO, you’ll make photographs that look and sound like real film rolls pulled out of storage 30 years ago.

FIMO including over 7 signature presets which replicate the look of old-school 35mm camera films.

I’ve been all about the LM Color 100 film that replicates the look LOMO LC-A film with its vignette shadowing, vivid colors and sometimes blurry features, especially when it’s combined with my Moment Superfish lens

I’m really liking results with the FIMO Analog Camera app. It’s pretty fun. And I think it produces some lovely stylized photos. πŸ˜€πŸ“·β€οΈ
